An Old House and A New House . . .

I was back at work today, not a normal Thursday for me, but I was helping to cover for my client who was taking some CE courses today and tomorrow.

I did sneak out around 12:30 to meet up with the last scheduled potential buyer who’s looking at the house. Got some nice ideas from him on how to proceed, and he’s going to get back with me on his proposal.

Hopefully we’ll be able to have all the info and make a decision later this weekend.

After I got home about 4:15 Jan and I headed right back out to have dinner at Pho 20 once again, our first visit since we got back from our trip.

Jan had her now-usual Teriyaki Chicken, starting with the House Crunch Salad.

While I got my usual White Chicken Meat Pho and a couple of Shrimp Spring Rolls.

All delicious as usual, and as usual, Sherry, the owner, sent us home with more food than we ordered. While we’re eating, she’s always in the kitchen whipping up some special dishes for us to take home. And she also sent Jan home with a big box of blueberries and half a dozen tomatoes still on the vine.

When I mentioned my new Digital Voltage/Amp Meters,

I forgot to tell you how inexpensive they are at only $17.00 each. A real deal.

Looks like I will be getting a new GPS in the near future. I got my replacement Charger Cord in today, but it didn’t fix the problem. The GPS works just fine on the battery, but it will not run on the 12v charger, which means, I guess, that there is a problem in the internal power circuitry in the unit. So I get a new GPS. Yah!

Brandi, Lowell, and Landon have a new WOW house. At least according to Jan. She always called their old house, a WOW house, and it really was.

Brandi's Living Room

They sold that house last December, because they wanted something a little smaller than the almost 4000 sq.ft. one they had, and, more importantly, they wanted a much bigger backyard, big enough for a pool. They have been renting since they sold and had said they were going to start looking for something new in the fall.

But in a surprise announcement, they bought a new home today, and it looks like they got what they wanted . . . in spades.

And yes, the present owner really likes RED.

The house is about 1000 sq. ft. smaller than they had before, and they certainly got a larger backyard. At over 11,000 sq.ft., there’s room enough for several pools, not just the one the place comes with.

As it stands right now, and assuming the inspection goes OK, they’ll close on August 31st.

And Brandi’s already invited to Thanksgiving at the new house. Really looking forward to it.

Thought for the Day:

If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal, or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?
