The Day Went By In A Flash!

Why did the house go to the doctor? It had a windowpane.

Our real estate agent came right on time, and we went looking at properties until 12:15 AM, at which time we were worn out.  Looking for what you say?  Yes, we are looking for Mary because the two-story house is no longer viable.   We found a really nice place, but it will probably sell before getting everything lined up on this side of the equation.

I thought to myself, home is the starting place of love, hope and dreams.

When I saw the property, I also got interested.  Wow, after 76 years on this planet, I could have a shop!  We could live 500 feet away from the nearest neighbor! It would be double the size of my place and double the size of Mary’s place.  It is located in Orange, about 19 miles from my house now, so it is not like moving away.

4200 square feet of luxury hidden on the side of a small hill in Orange, California, in a cul-de-sac with four neighbors hundreds of feet away.

There was a super family room and a formal dining room across from the kitchen!

Great features!

Outdoor entertaining, anyone?

Three car garage with a shop!

…and a view!

We took our real estate agent to lunch at the Elks, where she met up with Bill Capps, and the four of us really had a nice lunch.

Returning to Mary’s decided to get a pedicure; I needed it after all that walking.  We decided to go to Rockwell’s and get some foodies for Jan, and we paid her a surprise visit.  We spent a good hour or more with Jan talking about life and how amazing it was.

Finally, we returned home, and then we hit the hot tub and killed off a bottle of diet ice tea while we discussed the possibilities of today’s adventure.  Wow!  I have only lived in three houses in my entire life, where I was raised in Los Angeles, 20 years in La Mirada, and 35 years in Los Alamitos.  I think feeling sad to leave doesn’t mean I shouldn’t go on and make a change in my life.

Maybe it was a dream?
