  1. If the locals couldn’t tell she was living outside her meads, there’s some there that is wrong about the people. Could it be the chemicals that spray the farmland every year? you betcha!

  2. Because of her they couldn’t open the public pool for the children, mow the grass in the cemetary and so on????? Instead of her sitting in her little room they should put her in a safety vest and send her out to mow that grass with a push mower and have her scrub that pool til it shines!!!!!!! Public invited to see all that!!!!!
