Condo community feels effects of pandemic stress

Dear Abby: My husband and I own a condo in a building with 22 units. Because of COVID, one of the HOA board members has posted signs stating “rules” throughout the building. The rules are typical for these trying times, but the number of signs is obsessive. Many of the residents dislike the signs, but my husband was the one who wrote a nasty letter to the HOA about how many are posted.

The board member who was responsible for posting the signs was a friend of mine. Her feelings were hurt, and she has made some snide remarks about the letter. A group of women meet weekly for happy hour, and she and I are both part of that group. I feel caught in the middle. My husband has had a hard time getting over being mad about the signs, and I know the HOA member is angry at

A home for sale in Seattle that feels like the San Juans

Some people have a second place they can escape to. But this waterfront home for sale in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood is both a residence and a retreat.

“I like to think of this house as an experience. And it could probably be clinically proven to improve one’s health to reside here.” Said Michael Doyle of Windermere Real Estate Midtown.

Nestled up against Discovery Park, the property is actually 5 parcels spread out over nearly 60 thousand square feet. To get to it you can either take the steps or take a ride.

“The tram is a great way when you need to carry things up or down.” Said Doyle.

It may not have views, but the master bath
