I know I haven’t been consistently writing my usual long winded chatty posts as of late.  The lighter side of my creative mind does not work well when under stress and I have to admit the stress levels for Kelly and I have been up lately regarding a possible ‘house sale’.  However there is finally a faint light at the end of this long seemingly endless tunnel.  I am still not at liberty to give out a lot of ‘before hand’ details but will say this……… Our house underwent a lengthy and thorough house inspection this morning and to our great relief there were no major problems found despite the house being nearly 60 years old.  By the end of next week I may have a little more to say on how things are going.  I am sincerely hoping in the meantime to once again get myself back into my old blog writing routine………barring any more stumbling blocks that is.

  1. Just take care of business and we'll see you when you have time. Enjoy the break and good luck!

  2. Good luck with all the details etc and hope all works out the way you want it to and you can get back on the road again, exploring new places, like you enjoy.

  3. Finger crossed all goes well for the house sale:) It is not easy waiting. We were there for eight months after we moved into our motorhome full time.

  4. I just closed on the sale of our house. It was "nerve racking" waiting. When and if I can sell the motor home my stress level will go way down. I'll be praying your home sells quickly

  5. I have no problem waiting for your next blabberfingering. I can stand some rest from all the laughing you bring out of me. Just relax we all will be here when it is time to write again.

  6. The groaners today are outstanding. Every teen-ager can tell you the one about "It's easier to get forgiveness than permission"!

    I hope you can be patient - everything is going to work out well with the sale of your house.

  7. It sounds like everything is going in the right direction.

  8. Good luck Al and Kelly. It will be nice for you to have things finalized, we are hoping things work out for the best for you two!

  9. Soon, the selling of your house will be a story told, just like the many stories you have told us in the past. Hope all goes as planned and you guys are soon on the road again.

  10. worst nemesis..Chill out and what will be, will be...hugs!

  11. I remember you were nervous when you bought it, and seem to be twice as nervous now. Tell you what though, "IF" we had decided to move from Florida to Arizona (where we winter in a Condo), we would have loved living in your house...having the motorhome right there next to us...having nice neighbors in secluded area.

  12. Keeping all fingers and paws crossed for you that everything goes as planned!


  13. Aye pobrecitos!
    You need a real vacation and you both need to fussed over with a good pedicure after all is done!
    When I get stressed I take plenty of Tums and go to my lil cabin in Big Bear Lake.
    I will pray for good things for you two and a trip to Hawaii ;))
