Let's get the week started off right! The lady said the dumpster would be delivered tomorrow.  I just got a call, it will be here in just a little while!  Thumbs Up

I got that freaking mattress out of my truck and most of that pile in the dumpster.

I didn't think I would get anything done today. I was scooting around the garage on a little desk chair on rollers.  I use the second creeper as a wheelbarrow.  Flinging some of that stuff into the dumpster is giving me some pain on my right side. The dumpster is better than half full.  That king mattress takes up a lot of space.  I filled 3 more bags with junk and started chopping up the lumber I need to get rid of.

This one realtor has been very nice and helpful.  I was looking at this place just down the river from here.


$75,000
  • 2bed
  • 1bath
  • 600sqft
  • 8,915sqft lot

Nice looking little place.

Re: that advice you said you liked hearing... if I had known when I bough this place, I would have looked for a little more house & a lot less yard.

Emphasis on the less yard part.

For people our age, the smaller the yard  the better.

I wish I had one of those "postage stamp" yards.

JMHO.

I went and saw that place. As far as first impressions go...

The road getting back to this place is crap!

The neighbor dogs were barking their heads off. The puppy wouldn't leave the pretty realtor lady alone!

I like the place.  I offered $10,000 less than the list price.

This is crazy sh*t! Jimbo, would love this girl!



Kevin!  She called me when I was out getting some food.

I need your home address!

I need a copy of the signed offer!

What title company are you using?

If they accept my offer. If everything goes well between now and then. I could close on the 29th of May.
Plenty of time to call spectrum for TV and Internet service...Plenty of time to call 2 men and a truck to take what's left of the furniture over there.  I will need a window air conditioner in one of the back rooms.  Maybe a new TV. Mama took the best TV in the house.

That lawn needed mowing bad!  The f**kers should still take care of the property in the mean time.

Looks like a happy, comfortable little place. 

You aren't hitting on the real estate lady, are you, ya ol' dawg? Wink LOL

The only thing I can hope to have with this beautiful woman is...A successful business transaction.

Why? Is she a hooker?

Is her real estate company called Homes and Ho's?

I am up to my neck in legal 'DocuSign' paperwork. I think it was fellow member (Caroln) who pointed out the realtor won't even mess with you unless you are pre-approved or have some evidence of ability to pay.

The agent with the listing wanted to see the signed offer on this house before she presents the offer to the current owner.  I'm about to add some conditions if they send a counter offer... MOW THE GODDAMNED LAWN.

I need to look inside the shed too.  The boathouse?

Things are happening fast! They countered at $70,000. Okay! Goddamn it!  I'm depressed and vulnerable!

Getting all of this stuff out of this house is killing me.  Maybe seeing a 6 figure balance in the CU account will help.

The wife is being great.  I'm still on the joint checking account, she is paying for my internet service, health insurance.  I get a big check tomorrow...I might even shave!

$70K is not a bad price for a house nowadays.

I must have 20 to 25 cans of paint in the garage. I keep opening up the cans/plastic buckets, hoping it will all dry out in time.  I put the water softener salt in the dumpster, I will probably get in trouble for that.  If the dumpster is overweight...They will charge me extra!  This really sucks!

Well, PostImage is screwed up so I can't post a picture of my new TV.

It's a 32" Vizio HD Smart TV.  It's working!  I need to make some adjustments and learn how all this new stuff works.  I have a new antenna in the garage.  I'll try that out next.  That will give me the other 2 TVs back.

Citi Cards called me a few minutes ago, their fraud protection dept. They denied the charge, just leave it at that!  I used the same card at Walmart, it went through no problem.

Okay!  I've got all of my channels back!  I guess I'll have to sleep on the couch.  I like the TV as background noise when I sleep.

I FOUND A SPLITTER!!  I have all 3 TVs working again.  I tried to sleep with the radio on last night.  That didn't work too well.
