It started as a lark. Katherine Gillette painted her mailbox pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. Or she may have been trying to intentionally tweak the board members in her Plantation Resort 2 HOA in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Now she says the HOA has gone too far, placing a lien on her home for not trimming a hedge, and not repairing a fence. But she says it was the pink mailbox that finally did it. She’ll inevitably lose her house, of course. Neighbors who don’t knuckle under to HOA knuckleheads usually don’t win this kind of dispute. It’s just too bad someone didn’t warn her. If someone in Frisco, Texas knows her address, I’ll send her a free copy of my new book.
