Busy day ahead.......

I admit it, I've been futzing this morning. Doodling on the 'puter, browsing facebook, writing emails, following threads hither and yon, waiting for inspiration, or maybe just until my fingers work well enough to hit the keys reasonably accurately. (If you could see an unedited version of these writings you'd think the proverbial monkey at the keyboard really had a job, right here! Try instant-messaging me on facebook and you'll see...)

It's still gray and chilly outside, and outdoor spring chores are beginning to beckon. They're particularly important this year since we want the house to "pop," as they say in real estate...we are promised a bit more warmth and sunshine as the week progresses so there is still time. Our agent is coming on Monday to take interior pictures for his brochure and the "virtual tour" on his website. Miraculously, we'll be ready for him. He also wants to take a picture of the front of the house and is stymied in that because the porch is still dismantled for painting. I have this spectacular picture, but it can't be used with all those flags flying on it.... well, the gay flag, anyway. I'm asking a friend if he can photoshop them out. Wouldn't you want to live in this house????

Tonight's the night for the big office dinner--now smaller by two who had previous engagements. So it's fewer people but it's still major cooking. That's what I'll doing most of the day.

I'll post my songs now--two insrumentals--and get away from this screen!

Cute little cottage style house. The we owned on Danville was a two story, what they called up there a bi-level. Front door entrance was positioned so you entered a landing and could go up one flight or down to the family room. It originally was a two bedroom but we made the formal living room upstairs into a Master with fireplace. Was kewl to say the least. We loved that old house. Paid $44,000 and bought it with a VA loan. No money down.

Good luck with your food prep.

Have fun tonight. I think it is terrible that you have to worry about your flag. Egads!

Most realtors will tell you that very personal touches, and especially ones with political overtones like the rainbow flag, are best left out of a house you're trying to get someone to imagine as theirs. We don't really mind.

The house looks lovely! I can't imagine anyone not wanting to buy it.


As for the flags, what the heck. People do try to envision the house as theirs, and maybe they just would not want any flags! Personally, I think they're all great. Good Luck!

Thanks, Peggy. Personally I think the house looks resplendent with all that decoration, but we don't want to scare people off with our idea of "resplendent," which others might find downright gaudy. Best to let their imaginations do the work.
