Or one could take the Mark approach. It doesn't really get any fun until about 4 minutes or so.
My acquired, later in life, fear of heights prevents me from watching more than a few seconds.

Tell me about it... Oh, you just did

But hey, we'll have an extra showing tomorrow before the public ones on Sunday and Monday. We'll be away up in the mountains anyway, but there should be phone coverage in case we'll receive bids before we're back.

A good afternoon to you all!
Good luck! We find out tomorrow if all the conditions have been waived...I have a little electrical work to do but easy peasy stuff.

That skillet was nearly new and only just barely seasoned. I still have that skillet, and use it frequently.
It looked very not round.

Hope you get a good offer soon.

I am on the other side of that deal now. Very few houses are coming on the market at the moment. That means ever since January hardly anyone has offered a house for sale in the part of town we are looking at - about 1 mile by 3/4 mile. With house plots as small as they are that is a very small proportion.

What you see are the pour spouts on either side of the skillet.

This house will be on the market soon.



Two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, full unfinished basement, the upstairs is one big room that could be divided into a couple more bedrooms, the basemen can also be finished and made into useful living space, main floor and upstairs is 2,992 square feet, the basement is 1,836 square feet. Geothermal heating and cooling. Private well, and septic system. Propane fireplace and Jenn Aire propane cooktop with a 500 gallon buried propane tank (comes in handy for those times when the windstorms knock the power out).

The house is an ICF (insulated concrete form) design, the exterior walls are about 18" thick, concrete with rebar (R50 insulation value, this home is superinsulated, highly energy efficient), the interior walls, floors and roof are conventional stick frame. The siding is Hardie Plank concrete fiberboard, the roofing is Pabco 50 year architectural three tab.

40 x 60 shop with a 12 foot high wall.

All on a private, secluded parcel of 6.174 acres partially wooded with 380 feet of private riverfront on a high bank (no flooding).


A steal at $1,199,000 US.

"Fun" is not the word I'll use. I'd have to throw away my underwear.

Took Mrs B for her belated birthday lunch today.
A true hero was in the booth next to ours, an elderly gentleman, with a walker, wearing a cap that said WWII Veteran.
He was with a nurse type aide, and a person I believe was his son.
He was very perky and in good humor. When we were leaving I wanted to shake his hand and say thank you for your service, but didn't want to interrupt their meal.

He probably would not have minded the interruption Bob.

WWII vets are now thin on the ground.

Enjoy! I lived for a while in St Pete's Beach.

There was a very nice lady who worked in one of the local travel agencies in downtown St Petersburg. Her name was Glory.
It gave me great pleasure (when I needed to fly somewhere) walking into her business and saying "Good Morning Glory!"

The problem has become the economics of living here on a pension.

At the moment, I could genuinely as the price I posted here, and still get around $1.1 million.

And a similar property, although a view place instead of riverfront (although some we have looked at have ponds or seasonal streams), and most likely not an ICF with geothermal heating and cooling) is running $290,000 to $500,000. We owe just a bit over $300,000 on this place.

So we sell, pay off the mortgage, pay cash for another place, and have some cash left over for things like paying someone else to do the heavy lifting for the move.

And some beer.

And a bacon cheeseburger.

Oddly though the timing is off.

My current retirement plan is three more years from August.

I hope my property values keep climbing . . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . and those in the area we are looking at relocating to don't.

There's some sense in that. But, you do seem to have a nice spot.
