Very good news! Thank you for the update.

Escort Rider, I've enjoyed following the posts on your young friend and happy endings, or really a new beginning, is great news.

Last week, we had a woman contact us about buying our house in NY. She made a cash offer on it and wants to move in before winter. We were planning on putting it on the market in the spring, so it's not unwelcome, but we weren't mentally prepared for something so out of left field.

DH is acquainted with her slightly and she is friends with neighbors down the street.. She has bought other local properties, so this isn't new for her. We need to get a lawyer, since NY real estate requires one for all parties, so this will start the process slightly earlier than planned. After Irma, having another house was a comforting thought, so I'm not in a hurry at this point to sell. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Escort, Happy to hear the JOYOUS news !

Each of you thank you for sharing your corner of the world; these last 2 day, 1/2 off at the annual Senior Benefit Sale,
like a garage sale. In a Large, former pizza restaurant, half household goods, clothes, etc. The 1/2 half of the building, furniture 3/4 of the room, 1/4 BOOKS. My co-hort and I have been sorting by categories since June. Initial sale, the 1st of August.

Interesting the genres of books that are donated; lots of fiction as well as non-fiction, biographies, political, philosophy, religion, etc. Also interesting folks and the stories of their lives. One woman, today, late 80's sharing about photography,
asked how she became interested---her mother ! The way she talked, she took photographs like a professional, wanted to know about more advance computer work, something about putting her photographs on the computer.

Jim, thank you reminding me of the change of seasons. Happy Fall Y'all !

Texas here. I tried to sit on my front porch to enjoy the beautiful day just a half hour ago, but the sun and the temperature drove me back inside! I am looking forward to cooler weather so I can make use of my beautiful space and enjoy my neighbors, the walkers and dog-walkers who pass by my house.

Received my information packet in the mail from my health insurance people. A lot has changed. Including costs.

Last year, my premium went down from $40/month to $36/month. Now it is $47/month. Co-pays/deductibles are of course higher. Prescription meds ... I can hardly wait to see what they will cost (NOT).

Now I know where the money I'm saving by going bankrupt will go. It's definitely a no-win situation.

31f and a heavy frost this morning, my garden is toast. However, I sure am enjoying today's sunshine and 55f outside. Reading a book sitting outside in a tshirt (and pants). A nice Cohiba cigar too.

I also decided when the news is on here at 5pm, I'm watching SpongeBob SquarePants. It makes more sense to me.
