But no worries it all ended up ok.

As a few people here know, I am now in the great Mormon state of Utah. Not a bad place, the economy is still holding up well all things considered. I got a pretty decent job and have been doing pretty ok.

Well we are renters and were hit with an inspection from the owners of the house we were in. Well it wasn't an inspection, it was them coming to let us know that they were breaking the lease and selling the house we were in.

Now it was one of those deals that we could have fought. But we just didn't think it really was worth it. So we just shrugged our shoulders and said "OK."

Well realtors on the doorstep asking to show the house while I was working and the calls and all the crap that goes along with this stuff, made us really want to get moving.

So off a house-hunting we went.

And after a month of hunting around we found this place. It is about 2X bigger and only 50 bucks more than we were paying month before. Still in a good neighborhood and now I even have a big shed to put the motorcycle in. So that means I no longer have to park one car out in the cold while I keep all my junk in the garage!!

Plus we get a mountain and lake view to boot.

Sometimes a crappy situation is actually for the better.

A view from my smoking spot on the back patio.

The lake view is off the front porch, but I do have to look between houses. Good enough for me. Close enough to see the lake. Far enough away not to be eaten alive by bugs.

And GrumpySteen thanks for the video! I thought it was pretty good.

Good to hear from you, Shroom! [Smile]

Nice to know you're still alive and kickin' somewhere. ;-)

Shroom - the view from your house is sooooooo much better than the view from mine! (Actually...there isn't a view from my house... [Frown] )

I hope you and the family have already started building up a history of good times in your new place. [Smile]
