I'm sorry about that. As long as there's no crime committed we should all be able to do whatever we want on our own property.

Where we used to live there's an inspector who decided to get into it with us when we finally had enough money for a fence. He did not let it go for many years, he even took us to court twice and we won both times, the last time the judge told him to do something worthwhile with his time and after a few more months he stopped bullying us. All over a fence.

I hope you get to have your gate.
