“When he told us to get off of his lawn, we didn't think that he was serious”
Jeremiah Ezekial Jackson, aka "the Curmudgeon", has faithfully fulfilled the dual roles of being both a grumpy old fart and of keeping kids off his lawn since his birth sometime early last century.

“You'd better be home b'fer ten, missy. Don' mik me come out lookin' fer yuh.”
What is the Curmudgeon's stance on dating? He's "agin it". If you don't speak Curmudgeon that means that he's against it.
Remember that, because if there's one thing that he's against, it's repeating himself.
“If there's one thing I'm agin, 's repeatin' meself.”

“...and you'd best not see that good fer nuthin' Cranshaw boy agin. Yeh know I'm a feuding wit' the Cranshaws, dagnabit!”
The city eventually caught up with Jeremiah. Suddenly (the Curmudgeon considers sixty years to be suddenly) he was no longer allowed to shoot the "varmits" that crossed, landed on, or crawled under, his property. Suddenly he was supposed to pay the various taxes that folks from the city, in cheap suits (also from the city), insisted that he pay. Suddenly, in fact, his lawn was actually supposed to contain grass.
With the city came neighbors. If there's one thing the Curmudgeon is against, it's neighbors.
Neighbors, you see, meant that Jeremiah had to look at people. He's against people, particularly the kind that he has to look at.

“Git off mah lawn! Git now! Ahm not gonna tells yuh agin!”
As Jeremiah sees it, he's been squatting on his land for long enough that people should know by now not to walk on it.
Playing on it, or even playing near it, is not to be done. If a ball lands in his yard, that ball is his. Finders-keepers, as it were. It's rumored that Jeremiah has a garbage can full of balls of all types (soccer, base, tennis and foot) hidden in his basement, all of which had the misfortune of landing in his yard.
God help the frisbee that lands on his roof...
