I forgot to tell everyone...

 

As of yesterday, I own a house

 

 

Will post pictures soon, currently I am running around like a madman trying to get stuff done. Luckily I have until Nov. 30th to be out of my rental, but I also have a lot of things going on between now & Nov 30th...

    Congrats on the new house, just think, every nail you put in the wall does not have to be fixed when you move.    Enjoy.

    Congratulations on your castle.

     

     

    Do yourself a favor -- lay out some ground rules never to have or do in the house.  Suggestions:

     

     

    - never allow smoking (duh)

     

     

    - Limit pets to ONE dog or ONE cat.  Believe me, cats can accumulate.

     

     

    - Each year look to one way to save energy.  Might be replacing all screw-in bulbs with flourescent (never, ever use these bulbs with a dimmer switch unless you wish to burn down your house)

     

     

    - Keep the outside nice. 

     

     

    - Take care of your older neighbors.  Their great-grand kids might have to look our for you some day.

     

     

    - Help a neighbor cut down a tree, hang dry-wall or move furniture.  You will earn their respect. 

     

     

    - Remember that "we always lead" no matter what.  The political sign in your yard might offend a neighbor - avoid it.  Letting your grass grow too high might put forth the image that you are lazy, keep it neat.  Turning the lights off at Halloween might make you seem like a bad neighbor.  Wild parties with loose women, friends in togas, etc... basically "fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son" (though it was fun in Animal House and college).

     

     

    Congratulations again.  Get yourself a big brass Claddagh door knocker or an appropriate "Céad Míle Fáilte" sign.

    Re: I forgot to tell everyone...

    Dang, Wags, I was going to tell him to start the drunken, toga wearing loose women parties on December 1st.... screw mowing the lawn it'll be almost winter.

     

    I'm the youngest guy in my 'hood... they don't expect much from me.

    Good lord, Kevin, glad I'm not your neighbor

     

     

     

     

     

    Congrats, Chris!  Very exciting!  Painting and decorating is so fun!  Wish I could afford to quit being a court reporter and do that full time.  Not that I'm any good at it.  I just like it.

     

     

     

     

     

    Oh, Chris, one last "rule" that Wags forgot:  If you get up to about 350 pounds, don't run around outside and do your lawn work with no shirt on.  Someone forgot to tell my neighbor this.  Yuck.

    Congratulations man!!!!  That is awesome.  So, should when and what time should I bring that bottle of Don Eduardo?  It wasn't Don Eduardo huh?  Abraham? 

     

     

     

     

     

    Oh man, I just remembered, I really need to mow my lawn.  Our chihuahua got lost in the grass for about 30 mins this morning...LOL

     

     

     

     

     

    The nice people at the HOA always remember to remind me it's time to take down my X-mas lights right around March...

    That's funny... they waited until July to tell me.    I think it was the automatic timer that did me in. . .
