When the seller of our home told us we had a pear tree in our backyard, I was pretty excited.

It did occur to me that, being the only one in the house who eats fruit, it might be a problem. Not to mention potentially pissing off our backyard neighbors, when some of the fruit falls in their yard.

But alas, it doesn't matter. Turns out that we have is a fruitless, flowering pear tree.

Bummer. Or as Richard succinctly put it: "What's the point of that then?"

I guess it'll be lovely in the spring and autumn...

Tell him to stop drinking wine if he does not like fruit then... ;)
