I got a nice apology note today from Joel Ridley, owner of the rental unit at Schöne Ansicht, for the extracurricular activities that broke out in the wake of a party thrown by his renter. Mr. Ridley explained that the offending guests were not guests at all, but party crashers. He also promised that the offending behavior would not happen again as the result of a party on his property. Thanks to Mr. Ridley for stepping up to this problem.
In related news, it looks like the Schöne Ansicht homeowners association is planning a meeting to come to some understanding on party rules and on the misuse of common areas and other people's property. That's good news considering last weekend's party seemed more like a Vanderbilt frat house bender than a party for grown-ups.
