I've been laying low for a while,for various reasons.

Moving out of a 4 bedroom home my wife and I shared since '82, and into a "half the size" old house, (read: dreadful hut"), we bought 31 years ago and had rented.
This home I'm in becomes our daughter's, and she will do well by renting it out.
Since my wife passed in January, I really appreciate more the job she did keeping us in a beautiful clean home.
I intend to put up a more modern addition and use the existing structure as a 3 car garage, then unload it.
I have to use it as my primary residence for two years to get better tax treatment, but it will take that long to plan and build the new structure.

I do visit here, although I've been quiet, lurking.

Some days I think about what I need to do in the next 10 years, and other days I go to take a nap and am ambivalent about waking up.

I've been in the Twilight Zone for six months, though it is slacking off a little bit.

I'm very thankful I have a little angel of a Grand Daughter visit frequently, there's so much I want to teach her that she won't learn in school.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

I hope it works out for you Bohica and the tax issue resolves itself. I know exactly where you are at with downsizing one's living quarters and entire life as hubby and I are discussing that very thing right now. If you can manage to save some tax $ why not hire someone to help you fix it up to the way you will be happy with it? At this stage in our lives, we really don't need a big house to rattle around in, and fix, and clean...etc. I also hope you don't isolate yourself there. Ever thought of volunteering in your new community? It's a great way to help out and meet people. Do you still drive? Maybe you can drive old people to their doctor's appointments on a part-time basis. Just throwing ideas out there for you.

Louis the Poodle is just like I want in an almost 8 month old puppy.

I had hopes that he and the Grand would grow up together, and they do seem inseperable when they're together, to the point where Louis stays wherever she is when they stay here overnight. I mentioned to our daughter that when Hana is here, Louis leaves me like Jesus left the Jews.

The pup is quite unaware of his relative strength though, and I do fear that one day I will see him pulling Hana across a field like he's running the iditerod.

Twilight zone sounds about right. Did we get inception-ed?
