Early Greetings

Although it’s still a week from Thanksgiving, in case the seasonal exigencies of life intrude and I am unable to post as often as usual, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays. January 1, 2023 is six weeks from this upcoming Sunday.


Not too much to report here about which I am at liberty to discuss. We have not purchased a house nor made an offer on one. I suspect we will be in our current house longer, even much longer, than I had thought just a couple of months ago. If that proves to be correct then any car purchase(s) will have to wait. We have seen houses with “real” garages and space for 1-3 cars to be parked safely on the lot, though, so I am encouraged that when the day comes and we actually pull the trigger on a new house, at some point after that both my wonderful wife and I can do a little car shopping.

This house–with its nearly 9,000 square feet under roof, 3.5 acre lot and garage space for at least six cars–is, sadly, out of our price range. What the hell, here’s a photo:

Even though the house is priced far beyond what we can prudently spend, for its age and amenities its price per square foot is actually a “bargain” for this market. It’s even about 300 feet higher in elevation (therefore, about 1°-2° cooler) than where we currently live.

Even in the 1-in-300,000,000 chance that my wonderful wife and I win a big lottery jackpot I don’t think we would spend $8-$10 million on a house. Why should we when something like this could be available for far less?


I’m out of topics for today. Take care.
