I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

We have had a LOT of rain. Forget the snow here a week or more ago. Gone sir.
We have had a lot of wind too. It was calm a cuppla hours ago, now it is “breezy”.
Nice sunset tonight.
Well the home in Payson fell apart. The appraisal came in a bit low. When I sold real estate 15 years ago (15 years???!!) an appraisal that was close usually came in as OK. Not so now PLUTO. Appraisals are very strictly monitored, too bad they did not do that a few years ago.
We were very close, yet the seller did not want to sell at the APPRAISED VALUE. They wanted to sell above that. Who doesn’t? Want to buy a penny roll for 70 cents? I would have to come up with the difference in cash, and I went negative. I spent hundreds for that appraisal and a home inspection, and I spent a lot of time coming up with all the mortgage paperwork. I sold stock to come up with the big down payment, and I paid to wire the funds back and forth. DONE.
The same thing happened when I tried to buy my duplex.
Last nigh a couple of foxes stopped by for a snack and aperitif. I was only able to supply the former.
Kibble on the chow porch. It is that time of year. They were both very friendly and not very chatty.
They even cooperated amongst themselves on eating. One ate, the other flattened down to the ground and patiently waited.
The barking fox of a couple nights ago was barking at Dutchie on the porch. Dutchie had a WHATEVER expression during the barkfest. Bored. Then I laid out a fox feast on the porch and there was silence for a while. After that WHILE it began again. I turned on the light and BENGAL BETTY, the neighbor cat, was chowing on the fox fest. And the fox was barking from a safe distance at another cat. The tone was set.
Kentucky lost to Duke in basketball (EVERYONE loves basketball). They showed that last second DUKE shot a couple times during the broadcast from many years ago. Let it go! Like the guys blue
shirt said, sitting in the crowd, I STILL HATE LAETTNER.
Holidays? No day off in 2 weeks since I returned.
