Perhaps the innate dadness of living in a neighborhood and showing your dadly dominance over the other dads, but at some point, there’s a natural progression from friendly competition into neighborly rivalry. In this case one dad had serious beef with his neighbor over a decade-old dispute and got payback in the best way possible– using nature and all its glorious, light-blocking beauty.
