Presov at Christmas

Finally! Here are some more pictures from Slovakia including Christmas trees and Nativity scenes. I think it' appropriate that I post them today. You can see them by clicking the link below.

Last word is my house will close on 29 December. A week late, but I'm still very excited.

Merry Christmas to all my friends out there!!

Merry Christmas!!

I was supposed to close on my house next Tuesday, the 23d, but it was delayed through no fault of my own. The new closing date is projected to be either the 26th or 29th. Oh well, as long as it's done before the new year. I can't wait!!

I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Take care.

Getting Closer . . .

. . . to purchasing a home. Actually, it's a done deal. Yesterday, I had the house inspected and got back a very favorable report. The inspector was surprised I was getting such a good deal on it but the economy and the seller's imminent transfer affected the price I'm sure. It's also in a great location for future appreciation and driving to work. I should be closing before the end of the year.

Oh, it is a four-bedroom and this begs the question, why do I need so many rooms? Well, it's easier to sell a house this size and, who knows, I might get married eventually. I just hope I'm not as impulsive in doing that as I was in buying the car and the house. In the meantime, I'll turn one room into a gym and the other into an office.

Back to work tomorrow and happy about it. I've been able to reconnect with old friends and even make new ones amongst the employees who've arrived since I departed a few years ago. I will probably travel again in a year or so.

Any furniture suggestions?
