Boy this is funny! It always amazes me how some people think the country life is just a painting, that you never have smell, noise, dust, whatever. I had a lady complain once that the corn was too high, she couldn't see the valley off her new back porch! I made the mistake of asking whether she had noticed the field when she moved in, she said of course, but it was during planting and the corn wasn't up yet and she wanted it put back the way it was!
Nobody ever called about the coal stove though, well, give it time.
