Something today's birthday boy would appreciate...

where i am: with Dempsey & Flurry
how i am: exhausted
accompanied by: Hubby's TV chatter

I'm just exhausted, having spent the day with a real estate agent scoping out potential new homes for my dad. Dad lives about 2.5 hours north of us and has decided he wants to move closer to me, as well as his only grandchild (my nephew), who's about an additional 45 minutes away. Wanting to save the 80 year old much of the legwork, his agent and I spent the day on reconnaissance, whittling down the prospects so that he'll only have about a half dozen places to look at.

In the end I think I looked at 12 different units in 6 different buildings in 2 different cities ~ all apartment type condos and, with the exception of 4 units, all worth while looking at.

Only one gave me a SPN moment though...

Can you say classic car buff? With a penchant for muscle cars?

Not convinced yet?

How about this...

Oh. My. God!

LOL, the scary part is, this is actually a really lovely unit too. Check out this angle...

The view is of a protected conservation area and, since Dad is still very mobile, he and his dog would have wonderful trails and places to walk. Do I really want him living right smack dab in my city though? Oh, well... que sera, sera.

So, do you think Dean would appreciate this guy's taste in decor or would it be too much, even for Dean?

I'm so very, very glad Kripke gave you another one *G*

Good of you to help your dad house hunt! I'm afraid you'd have to tell Dean "the collection doesn't come with the house." Much as I had to tell my daughter when she was six and trying to convince us the one house was "perfect" -"the cat doesn't come with it."

"the cat doesn't come with it."

Oh, that is too cute :)

I could so see Dean wanting to squat there, at the least ;)

Or, try to haggle some of the collection into the purchase price he'd be offering!
