This tenant had a fire start in his candle making business that burned down the new landlords building (which was also a bus station). The landlord called me, after the fact, to complain why I would ever recommend this tenant. I told him that his tenant was a looser, never paid on time, and destroyed some of my property. He had nobody to blame except himself for not doing the follow-up. It was not long after that that the landlord died of a heart attack! True story - check, check, and double check! Cover your butt!

I get Silvy back tomorrow!

The new (used) Silvy is home! I promptly went out and put 2000 pounds of cold patch in the back! Now it is broken in! It did a good job and I could have put in another 1000 pounds without trouble. I did protect it with tarps so I did not get too much tar on the truck.

As far as where is everybody: It is all Matilda's fault and maybe Riverside should take some blame. It is hard even to get a rise out of Theatergypsy. Maybe a cat got their tongues? Eventually another group will come along.

Have a great day. How is the purchase coming? Are you getting close?

Wooooooooooo hooooooooooooooo! Silvy is home and boy did she show you what she can do! BRAVO SILVY! The prequel letter was sent over to my lawyer yesterday so now I just have to sit back and wait for him to receive it then I can go have the contract written and sign off on the offer. It is moving very well so far! I am keeping everything I can crossed and said a little prayer.

Well darn it, how should we deal with those that have scared the others away!? hmmmmmmmmmm I hope you, the Mrs. and Silvy have a great one on yet another gorgeous fall day!

Sounds like your getting close! Hope that it all goes as planned. Perhaps you should rethink about the rental unit or your hubby's doghouse. Perhaps we could start that chapped arse stick plant in the old house? Of course we would have to deal with zoning if it is residential. Ah; just thinking!

I was serious before about checking out potential tenants. Don't be too quick - there are many losers out there. But I do wish you the best!

Have a great day!

Thanks Mr. Fisheye, it's Scranton so we maybe able to put the plant in the house...zoning is bizarre in this city! A restaurant is a block over (almost directly from our current home?). We are in know rush we are blessed that we can afford both homes for a while. The new house will need so cosmetic work...wonder if Riverside will come this far?

I had a wonderfully relaxing day hanging with some of my favorite people. They too are ex-patriots of the big NY!

I would also hate that wait. It has been so long since I went through the same. Then; I think they jumped on our offer. I wonder if all of the real estate programs on TV have hurt the system?

I can't wait for you to get your new house! So; when are we setting up our chapped arse stick factory in the old one?

You have a wonderful day!
