Hello my friends. How is everyone today? I'm having some problems with my Internet connection, so I'm doing an experiment, of sorts. I am writing this without the convenience of an Internet connection, and will going find some free Wi-Fi, and will post by way of Live Writer. I will look at this as practice, for when I'm out there boon-docking. I am up for a little bit of experimenting today. Isn't this what you do, when you don't have a connection?
I had a bit of encouragement, yesterday. As you all may remember, I am in the process of purging out my possessions and getting my house ready to sell. My house is on the waterside, and I don't expect too much of a problem in finding a buyer. Right down the street from me, is another big, two-story house. I noticed it had a for sale sign. After a flush of worry and discouragement, I decided to be proactive and look up their listing. This particular house is a little smaller than mine, and they are asking well over $100,000 more.
|my house $365,000|
|the other house $475,000|
Am I setting my sights too low? I don't think so. I would rather have a quick sale, rather than delayed around another 12 months, waiting for my place to sell. For obvious reasons, I feel like I am in a race. It does
bother me, somewhat, that it seems like summer is coming to an end. It's hard to believe with all these 100° plus days. As you know, I have called Lubbock, Texas, home for the last one quarter century. I know it is been hot here, but didn't realize how hot, until I saw this video.......
I will do what I've always done, I will turn to the magic of music for inspiration. Did any of you seen the movie, The Harder They Come? Jimmy Cliff, a rock 'n roll Hall of Famer, made some of the most positive music I've ever heard. Try these on for size.....
Isn't he absolutely amazing? I remember going to see the movie in 1973. It wasn't even in a first run theater. The Harder They Come is now a classic movie. It speaks of the struggle with class and position in life and how one man overcame his difficulties and rises above the working and criminal class. For some reason, it reminds me of myself. Not the struggles with poverty and drugs, but the struggle to free myself of my conventional home and to get out of limbo and finally on the road. It all depends on my house sell. I am sure I'm preaching to the choir because many of you have gone through the same struggles. Right?
If you can read this now, my trip to the free WiFi was a success. I started at McDonald's but soon left for the local coffee shop. All is well and I'm caffeined-up. Back to the house to continue getting it cleaned out and put on the market.
Thanks again for your interest and comments. They really do keep me going. I need inspiration sometimes. (don't we all?)
