Re: How to help a depressed neighbor. Suggestions.

If she thinks her son-in-law is capable of dealing with power lines (yikes!) then he is likely capable of helping her with the yard.

Re: Gift Budgets

You're a very thoughtful person. Aside from a couple of cash fundraisers for coworkers who were in very dire straits, I've never given or received gifts to/from coworkers for any reason.
