Everybody wants to sell us a house

Everybody wants to sell us a house! Since I've mentioned the sale of my house, everybody has helpful suggestions about what to do next, some of those are:
-A co-worker told me about some condos for sale in her area.
-Friend SLA's landlord wanted to sell us a house.
-Friend UHI introducted me to her co-worker with a house for sale.
-A friend who used to be a co-worker has a friend who wants to sell her house.
-The V-Man wants me to buy his (ex?) girlfriend's house!(hmmm to that one...).

Now I've said very clearly that I want to RENT a place, that we are looking for an APARTMENT, so what the heck is going on?

It's my son's birthday today!! I gave him his gifts last night when he came home. He received a belt, a calendar and a clock radio. Grandma (Mom) gave him a card with money and made him a banana cream pie. He opened the card with the gifts I gave him but doesn't know about the pie yet, as he's gone working. That will be a pleasant surprise to him when he comes home, tired!

Banana cream pie sounds wonderful right now!

Financially, I suppose it's always a better investment to own than to rent, but after having taken care of your old place, you might want to take a break from maintenance worries and just rent for awhile.

I was thinking of telling you about some really cheap real state deals here in Spain, but if you are not interested... (ha, ha, ha!)

Have fun packing.

Loved your mail selection... very, very funny :)

Hi I'm back and slowly getting caught up on people's blogs.
I'm stealing some of your jokes. Haha. It took me longer than it should have with that "pea soup" one.
Banana cream pie sounds good right about now.
