I came home from vacation church school this morning to find a big orange sticker saying someone complained that it was an abandoned vehicle and had to be removed in 72 hours or the city would tow and store it at our expense. I saw red and called the police and told them we were waiting to hear back from the fire marshal because we didn't want to be accused of getting rid of evidence. They were apologetic. Then I called the fire marshal-- we're good to go-- and then I called the salvage yard and we're getting $150 for it.

I feel great vast amounts of annoyance with whoever called though. Do they think we wanted our car to be set on fire? And why not come and ask us if they have a problem with it? It's not like we want it around.

Congrats!!! I looked at your link of pics then requested to add you on FB. Hope that's ok! Don't feel obligated to add me, tho. FB is very personal for some.

That was totally rude of them.
