Jim Deitz got the idea to gussy up his clapboards after looking at a photo gallery of wildly decorated homes.

Can everyone who chooses to smoke cigarettes disgard their disgusting poisonous garbage somewhere other than the neighborhood roads that my children play on? It is fowl enough that we have to endure the smell and hazerdous bi-products, but to also have it collect in front of my house (and yours too I'm sure) is just too much!!!
