Did I mention how slow things happen here. LOL. There was no surprises at the closing, it took 10 minutes and it all was done. They seamed like nice people, and were over whelmed will their packing up. I was nervous because there was still a good amount of stuff here at the walk through. They left us a few logs in the fireplace. Nice. Well, we got all our stuff from the pod in the house before the storm hit, and they removed the pod just before the first snow flake fell. We have 4-5 inches here, and it's been fun watching cars slipping past our place. D'OH. I guess I'm going to be clearing the snow from the driveway today, as a plow buried us at the street end. We have a large car port that kept the car clean, and dry. We have about 80-90ft of driveway. Dorothy, and I threw out a lot of stuff during packing to keep from having to ship stuff only to throw it out later. Well, as we are unpacking we are coming across stuff that we have no idea where to put it. ???? This is all ending up in the basement. We have used the fire place the last two nights and it was great. He left some good burn wood and since we don't have a kitchen table yet we have been eating on unopened boxes in front of the fire. High cool factor. Taking it all in, very different life style from our past, so far it's new and exciting. I would like to install a fireplace insert soooo ....... if anyone has advice on that topic .......... I promise to send some photos when I get the chance so hang in there, I just have other things to get done first.

One last minute snafu, we are buying a few items from the seller, and they said they would take a personal check. Well, today that changed, and they said certified check, or cash. Hmmmmm. Really???? 24 hours? ATMs only give me 500 in 24hrs. I said ............... (since he already emptied the house) if you don't take the check you can keep the items. D'OH, I guess he didn't figure I would say that. Now he will take the check. I have a funny feeling that might not be the end. It ain't over till the fat lady sings, or we get the keys. Soooo.... since plans changed a bit, we (should) be moving in tomorrow. I will rejoice tomorrow night. That being said, I will be off line until I hook up the PC at home. Cable is coming Sat. 3-5. We are trying to unload the pod before a storm hits here, it's expected friday. We will try to get it all inside on thursday. Keep your fingers crossed. PS: I haven't met the seller yet, but I found a car with Florida plates in our hotel lot. i asked at the desk what our friends room was, and said their name. Room 219 ............. Hmmmmmm ........ Possibilities..... I know something they don't know. Big grin. My next E-mail will be from home, gona get hectic here for the next few days.
