Take that, nosey neighbour

Jason Windus gave his California neighbour something to look at during a dispute over the height of a backyard fence — naked mannequins having a garden party.

Four of the fashion dummies are seated in wicker chairs around a matching table. Another is standing with its arms over its head and shamrocks over on its breasts.

A hand-scrawled sign on top of a nearby wooden barrel reads, "Reserved seat for the nosey neighbour that complained about my fence to the city."

"They wanted me to tear down my fence to see inside my yard, and now they get to," Windus said.

Windus said he was building a six-foot fence at his home in Santa Rosa so he could let his dogs out in his backyard when he got a letter from the city saying it violated an ordinance limiting such barriers along sidewalks to three feet.

"It was a six-foot fence, like everybody else's around here," Windus said Tuesday.

Windus asked why he was being singled out and was told City Hall was responding to a complaint.

Windus, who owns a moving company, said the mannequins he had picked up from a clothing store came to mind as he pondered how to send a message to the neighbour.
