If I had money you would be my real estate agent.
Hmmmm...that's a vocation I never thought about - weird housing real estate agent!
Weird housing for weird people. I like it.
Out of this world housing For out of this World
I really like weird housing too, but the folk art one would be more to my taste, not the planned community. However, there might be some interesting folks in that planned community. Maybe we should be putting up some more folk art on here, that others have seen. Like the Cadillac Ranch?
That's just plain goofy. It would be like moving next door to the Keebler elves!
I'm laughing so hard I'm gonna wet my pants!!! I thought Ray would be interested to know that someone actually did this. Incredible, isn't it? The first one I posted, I really love. It's something that my younger son would have made. I can see him being the caretaker there, and fixing it up. That's true artwork. An already-made shire? Especially when it is $899,900???? But hey, I might like living next door to the Keebler elves!
Umm...nice to visit but, I really would prefer a earth shelter home. If I had my 'druther's. Too cute though. Really would like to visit someday. ONLY $899,000? I'll write 'em a check. *nods* Oh yeah, I have this bridge...
This one was tongue-in-cheek for me. Too cute is the right word. But interesting.
I appreciate you posting it. Chances are I'll never get there...(although, who knows? Right?) This is like getting to enjoy it vicariously.
I get a kick outta this kind of post. Lighthearted. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Yeah *knods* "tongue-in-cheek" is a good way of putting it.
I guess I would like to see it sometime, and it's not all that far from us. Around 2 days of driving, and of course there is someone I love to visit up not too far from Bend.
Yea!! Road trip!
Sometime in the future...
Set a date...make it happen.
I don't think it's going to be this summer. We've got company coming in June from Memphis (my family from there). Besides the bathroom, we are also maybe going to have the back landscaped (I can't tell you how badly it needs it), so that maybe maybe we can entertain in the backyard. But there's so much to see right here in California, and all I have to do, to have a good day, is go winery hopping, or into San Francisco.
One of these days...one of these days, I'm gonna come visit and we can do just that. I've always wanted to visit Cali.
I know. You'll be here. That would be fun - hot tub and all!
Oh! I had forgotten about the hot tub! That'll give me even more incentive.
Now TorridGirl needs to renew her plans to visit Portland and she can swing by and drop me off in your vicinity. Woohoo!! A plan!
Don't forget too, there are folks on here from Portland. And Myclette is going there sometime soon too.
Glad you have a plan though. Please wait til our bathroom is finished, and my family from Memphis is not here anymore (they are coming in the beginning of June) ;~)
Oh, please, no worries! It will be sometime before I can get out that way. Right now I'm having trouble getting out of Texas. Lol.
I am planning a trip to Mobile, Ala before too long though.
But, one of these days I hope to have the honor of meeting you and a few others on here. Good Lord willing and the Creek don't rise...
I love that last saying. I always use it.
I won't worry. I just would love to have this place finished sometime! But there's a place out here - the Winchester Mystery House - where the woman felt that if she continued to add on rooms and things, as long as she did that, she would stay alive. That's sorta like my spouse and I. But we don't add on. We just keep trying to rebuild each room. One of these days, we will have rebuilt the entire 115 year old house ;~) BTW, good thing you aren't going to Mobile around now. Don't know how close that is to Prattville, Ala., but they just had those bad tornadoes. I guess Mobile is much closer to the coast though?
Prattville is almost three hours northeast of Mobile. And yes, Mobile is on the coast.
I learned the saying I used "Good Lord willing and the Creek don't rise" did not refer to a creek, as in water in the creek but, the Creek Indians and possible uprisings which played hell on traveling.
I'll have to google the Winchester Mystery House. So, is the woman still living or did the house get finished?
I thought Prattville was pretty far from Mobile. Thanks for letting this geographically-challenged person know. I've traveled across the country around 5-6 times, but have gone in different directions almost every time. I've been to Louisiana, and through New Orleans, on my way to Mexico. But I was in my 20s then, and it was around New Year's and New Orleans was quite exciting! I didn't pay too much attention to anything else, but did notice the poverty in the rural south. That was overwhelming to me then.
Aha - I didn't know the roots of that saying, and I'm glad to know it.
No, the Winchester widow is long since dead, but she never finished her Mystery House either, so that didn't work ;~) It has stairways that lead to nowhere.
Lol, I looked it up. I'm certaninly no geographical genius.
I did New Orleans when I was young too. Nothing quite like it. I lived in Thibideaux for awhile. Oil patch widow for awhile.
Stairways to nowhere...that rings a bell with me...hmm...
I'd love to hear your history sometime. Before I married (I was 27), I was quite adventurous, to put it mildly ;~) But I got pregnant the night I married, and boom, settled down here (after Ann Arbor, MI) for 35 years. It's been quite tame since then - most likely because my in-laws are English...LOL
My history reads like a soap opera. lol I haven't been a lot of places (yet) but, I've done a lot of things. Not all tame. *grins*
I've been told I should write a book but, I always said I couldn't write a book and tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth while my mother lived. She has been gone almost eight years. The problem now is remembering it all. lol
My early history was fairly wild. But since marrying and moving out here, it's been fairly tame. That's the price you pay for stability - you don't have all that wonderful adventure. But you have other things to make up for it.
We have something else in common: my mother has been gone for over 5 years now. And yes, I have problems remembering it all too ;~) I'm gonna check out eons, though maybe not tonight. My spouse/spice wants to use the puter. Night night
