Doesn't that have something to do with why, after all these many years he's been there, they're finally trying to drive Chez Pat off the beach? Now that's a real crime IMO. He's taken care of that beach for as many years as I can remember and deserves to be there. We first discovered that beach finally when Granddaughter Number One was an infant and she's all 'growed up' these days.
