  1. RE: the Bermuda Dunes thing. His complaint is that he can’t go out in his yard because she’s working in hers? Unless work means she’s out there with chainsaws making a racket 24/7 I don’t even follow his logic. The things some people find to be unhappy about. Sheesh.

    • In some places, presumably, you aren’t supposed to be seen working in your own yard. You’re supposed to hire guys with leaf blowers to do that. And you certainly shouldn’t be seen growing food!
