Back In The ‘Glades . . .

We didn’t do anything today. Just stayed at the rig, goofed off, read, computed, and napped.




Really, really nice.

Getting back to yesterday, we met one of our prospective buyers, along with his contractor. He wanted to get an estimate on what it would take to really trick the place out before he makes us an offer.

The last house like ours that was tricked out like this listed for $179,900 and sold for $187,000 after only two weeks. And that was a year ago. This year we hear that would be $195,000 to $200,000. So we’ll see.

Next up was breakfast at The Egg and I, only about 10 minutes from the house. Jan got what she said was her new favorite, the Tuscan Scramble.

I got my usual Two Egg Breakfast, but this time I added a cup of grits.

We were meeting Brandi, Lowell, and Landon up in Katy for a tour of their new house at 4:30, so when we were finished with breakfast by 1pm, we figured we had time for WalMart, so we got our shopping out of the way, took it all back to the rig, and then were on our way up to Katy by 3pm.

The new house looks even better in person than in the photos, and we were really impressed. We also got to meet up with long-time friends, Shawna and Jason, and meet Brandi’s coworker, Rebecca, who lives nearby.

Then while Brandi and Lowell headed out to dinner, we took Landon with us, made a dinner stop at Chick-fil-A, and then brought Landon back to his house to Landon-sit until Brandi and Lowell came home.

A really nice day.


Following up on the recent Florida blogs, here’s our trip through the Everglades.

Gliding thru the ‘Glades…  May 12, 2009

This morning we headed back up the Tamiami Trail into the Everglades to take an airboat ride.

We passed a place called Coopertown Airboats on our way down thru the Everglades from Ft. Myers and thought we’d check them out.

Not Us, but one like ours!

And it was a blast!

The water levels are low in the Everglades so in some cases we were airboating over mud flats and not water, but an airboat doesn’t really care as long as there are no stumps.

And there were alligators everywhere.

Thought for the Day:
 

Watching a cop show to learn about police work is like watching “Gilligan’s Island” to learn about ocean navigation.
