Vince is off today and he had big plans for the day but this morning, after fixing bacon, eggs, whole wheat toast and hash browns (which I grated myself!), I very sweetly said “Would you mind running down to the appliance store with me?” He looked at me real suspiciously but said “ok”. After a few delays, we made it to the appliance store and I think we decided that IF we’re getting a gas stove, we’re getting this one.
While figuring the price, the guy said “Do you have natural gas or propane?” I said “We’re going to get natural gas.” Vince said “We need a different house!”
You never know where one statement will take you. The guy at the appliance store said “Oh, my dad’s house is for sale . . about 12 miles out of town!” So . . we ended up making no decision on the stove but going out to look at that house. See how easily we get sidetracked?
The house, with the exception of the kitchen, was ok. The kitchen and the rest of the property was . . fantastic! When you drive up, you see this!
This room made Vince real happy! A 40′ x 50′ shop with concrete floor, mercury vapor lighting, a big loft!
The house just didn’t do it for me. But the land and the outbuildings and the neighbors surely made it almost the perfect house for us.
