Garage Sale Find....



We're over at Desert Aire right now enjoying the beautiful weather and the company of our friends. Yesterday morning we decided to go to some garage sales in the neighborhood (not so much for the stuff to buy but to say hello to the neighbors). Instead, we visited our next door neighbors, Don and Shirley and learned that he was currently battling cancer and not doing very well. They came over for the weekend to put their house on the market because it was just too much for them to care for. We were NOT looking for a new place because we love ours, but the house is a little bigger and we really like the layout. As Rick and I walked through it, we looked at each other and smiled...then Rick said, "we'll take it". It had only been on the market for 20 minutes. They are really happy we are getting it. Our view is as spectacular and now we have a house to sell. I don't think we're going to have any problems selling it because it's in the best neighborhood at Desert Aire. So, if you're looking for an investment property, this is the place for you. We would be next door neighbors. I'm attaching a photo of our new house (I'll be painting the trim in a couple of weeks).

This upcoming week Rick has chemo and I have a doctor's appointment so we'll keep you posted on how things go. I'm a little worried about Rick during Relay since chemo will be fresh, but he says he'll be just fine.

I'm down at Pat and Suzie's house writing this blog because I can't get very good wireless service at our house and Pat goes crazy when I don't' write daily. So, this one's for you Pat!

It's about 80 here with a nice breeze. Wish you were all here!

Dreaming Big and Sunny,
