I viewed the video using the original link you sent out. Hey presto it worked!

Looking forward to food porn update :-) In hospital on wednesday having my infusion so could do with some good reading material for distraction!
It appears we can work past the issues because after we viewed a house today, she told me to call the contractor and see if he coukd come see the house. We have an appointment tomorrow!

The room looked nice.
The hotel does look pretty.
The town you visited is cute. Love the sea otters.
The rock is impressive.
The story of the car on fire is scary, glad they were able to get out okay.
The drive pics were great. I loved the yellow field of flowers pics.
ROTF! A leather party.
Great car pics.
All caught up again.

He had a 29' Chevy for awhile and some idiotic police officer gave him a speeding ticket.
The cop probably just wanted a closer look at the car!

Unless, you fixed it and I don't read well enough! Which is absolutely a possibility.

The house - exciting times Alison.


I am very excited about the house

Who is *Olga* and how can I be her?


Wow! That home is unreal. I hope you get it too. It's truly remarkable. A walk in fridge and a tiki bar? Why would you ever need to leave? It's simply beautiful. I really like the red window treatments. Gave me an idea for my big windows.

Omg!!! I love the house... That kitchen is gorgeous but you really had me at the tiki bar! Looks like plenty of room for me to come to California to escape the Colorado winter!

BUY IT!

I know! That's why I was saying maybe we didn't need to go to the VGC for my 50th, but maybe we still do. I don't want my nephews staying here over night!

This is Olga, she was inherited to us from Fran's father when he died four years ago. She is 1 cat household cat. Recently she has been putting up with invaders in her apartment, but she lives alone. That's why we rotate back and forth between bedrooms each night. One night with Olga, one night with the herd. When we have guests they stay with Olga. I'm not sure if you read PIO's TR from last year, but she spent two nights with Olga in "her" apartment. She would lose a bit of space at this new house, but at least she would not have to blend with the rest of the herd.

Well, we do have a guest suite as long as you don't mind sharing with Olga! It has no tub, but there is always the bathroom down the hall. I plan on replacing the makeup area and second sink in the Master with a Jacuzzi tub, so I will have my own, the other will be for guests.

All I really cared about in the listing was the single floor part and I was thrilled that the kitchen and family room shared a space. The pool and tiki bar were a total surprise, but but awesome surprises!

I "KNEW" from the moment that we saw it that we wouldn't find anything better for the price and location. A one story with that kind of square footage is unheard of, and the lot was absolutely amazing. We are just taking a chance with the fact that there is busy street close by on the other side of the fence. Our gardener will need to do some heavy trimming so they can't climb the bougainvillea to reach the top of the fences.

We might be able to save on the gym membership by swimming in our own pool. We will have to hire a service to take care of it, but that should be OK. Better than me trying to regulate the chlorine. I will love being able to work out swimming at home! And the parties we can throw, there is a whole pool house with toilet and shower. We are going to use the sauna for instrument storage so that will be not usable, but how many people really want a sauna in So Cal? Just go outside!
