1800 miles later, I’m exhausted. Lots of driving, lots of visiting with friends and family. And I have things to say.
I’m thrilled to hear that Lawson, Ellington and Green are coming back for another year of UNC basketball. I don’t know how I can possibly wait until October. Unbelievable. Now the big question is who will start: Ginyard, Green or Thompson?
Crazy as this sounds, the wife and I are bidding on a new house. Totally unplanned. We went to look at a house for Mother-In-Law-In-A-Rowboat, and found ourselves in a complete shithole. The window sills are chewed away. The floors alternate between bright blue and bright red. The closets look like a dog was locked in at some point. The bathrooms are ungodly filthy. The carpet was scary.
But the place has sooooo much potential. It has over a half acre, which is huge here, and great tree cover. It’s structurally sound, and the major systems seem healthy at first glance (inspection pending). It has the location, size and layout that we liked. So we’re going to buy it, spend 40k fixing it up, and hopefully stay a long time. We’ve renovated our current house to a state of comfort and quality that we hadn’t planned on leaving. Not yet, at least. We may have a major project on our hands.
I have much more to say. Later.
