Stix n Brix
My eyes welled up and my nose got a bit sniffley, but I did not shed a tear. I guess I need to back up a bit. It was a very busy weekend. We’ve just about finished with the paint touchups and yard cleanup so the house will look great next week when it finally goes on the market.
We had put the waverunners on Craigslist about a month ago and had not had any interest until Thursday. A guy contacted us and I called him back that evening. It turns out that he has a slightly older Yamaha and his brother is interested in buying a pair for his family. They both work in law enforcement in another town nearby. They came to our house on Saturday to check them out, and they seemed to like them but didn’t make a commitment at that time. I told them that I was going to repost it at a lower price but he was still hesitant. I was ready to sell them. Well, 10 seconds after Gin posted it Saturday night, Eric called me to say that he and his wife talked it over and agreed to buy them. A verbal commitment is a relief to me. We’ll take care of the details this week.
Remember the Miata? I just couldn’t bring myself to put it on Craigslist until Saturday night. Gin posted it after I made the deal on the waverunners and in less than 2 hours, it was sold (verbally). Brian came out here this afternoon with his “20 something” son and gave me a check but mostly, cash. Since he lives quite a distance away, he was ready to drive it home. I felt comfortable with this and once again, we will work out the details during the week. I asked Gin if we should get the camera for a photo with the new owner driving away, and she thought it was best to remember her as ours.
Since I started the day by washing the Miata one last time, I ended the day by washing the Suki. It was kind of my way of mourning. We had that car for 16 years and we took good care of her. She will be missed. Brian said that he could tell that she was special just by talking with me on the phone last night. I think the car is going to a good home so I’ll get over it. It’s a huge step towards our goal of fulltiming.
I want to welcome the latest followers at this time. Karin is retired and moved to Tucsan from Indianapolis. She’s looking forward to fulltiming in 16 months. Phil has a great way to tell his stories. We met him at the RV-Dreams Rally in April. I look forward to checking in on them occasionally.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
