President's Day Random Thoughts

  1. Best weekend ever? If not, it was a close second.
  2. Favorite President - the more I learn, the more it is John Adams.
  3. The house deal is almost done - waiting for final loan approval.
  4. Favorite movie president - Andrew Shepard (Michael Douglas) in The American President. (How could it be anyone else?)
  5. I've opened the karaoke Pandora's box - 2 hours of my Saturday night.
  6. Favorite television president - you know it, Jed Bartlet (Martin Sheen) in The West Wing.
  7. Wine makes me happy or at least makes me not care much.
  8. Favorite presidential speech (fictional) - John Quincy Adams' closing argument to the Supreme Court in Amistad.
  9. Congratulations Doc Sadler on finally getting the big win.
  10. Favorite presidential speech - Lincoln's second inaugural.
  11. Upon further consideration - yes, best weekend.

Thoughts for the Week - Home Edition

  1. Another set of random house pictures. Well, hopefully not random - so far there's been no drama, no partially signed documents, no problems with lenders and generally no funny business.
  2. Now on to thinking again about why I own so many damn books.
  3. And stuff...so much stuff.
  4. Two men and a truck?

Random Thoughts - Timely and...

  1. One house deal down the tubes while another is in the works.
  2. This time the house is in north Norwalk and the owner is in Mexico.
  3. One more counter offer sent out this evening.
  4. The house has a ready to occupy man cave!
  5. And a sun-drenched, mostly glass south wall.
  6. In another unexpected turn of events I find myself reverse engineering a small red envelope for "red pocket money".
  7. Happy Year of the Rabbit!
