Amen to the evils of HOAs! We were once living in temporary quarters in a gated community with serious HOAs. My 8yo son was there with my husband and oldest daughter while I was back here with my middle daughter until she finished school and we could join them. On my son's birthday my husband's office sent him a bouquet of balloons since he was alone with my 13yo daughter on his workday b-day. The bouquet was left tied to the mailbox and my husband got a complaint call from the HOA because the balloons were there for a few hours until he could get home to take them inside. People without souls shouldn't be running other people's lives. But JHChick will have to decide for herself if she's prepared to seduce them or do battle with them.
