Ann, that makes total sense! Where I live is kind of a mix of city/country. It's becoming more and more city everyday though unfortunately. I've been here for over ten years, I guess it was bound to happen. Time to move?
Cadman-LT, when I lived in the city, I just needed to set something on the sidewalk and no sign was required to make ti disappear. In the country (at least out here) people don't assume that stuff on the side of the road is there for the taking. Perhaps it's because there aren't as many fences and buildings, so many of us have stuff sitting around temporarily (or in some cases not so temporarily). That's why a sign is useful.
That's funny bob from maine! We finally have cable and city water where I am! I'd rather live outside the city...almost no matter what though. The only loud sounds I hear are gunshots from hunters......lol
