Ninjas on Swamp Boats

Pop loves The Dukes of Hazzard. There’s enough slapstick humor in there that he can enjoy the show even if he can’t hear it. He also watches the news and leans up to read the ticker on the bottom of the screen. Since his eyes aren’t so good either, it takes a couple of passes of the ticker for him to get the whole story.

Tonight’s Dukes episodes are from the Coy & Vance season. Right now I have the TV on mute and Pop’s just laughing away. No one likes the Coy & Vance year, but I guess Pop’s not as picky. Funny is funny I guess. And ninjas on swamp boats fighting with Coy & Vance are evidently humorous. Hughie just drove a little white VW bug through a sewer pipe. Chuckle chuckle guffaw guffaw.

The offer on Pop’s house fell through. We don’t know why. There’s supposedly another offer on the table too, but it’s not as good. So, we’re trying to save Offer 1 while negotiating with the guy on Offer 2 to make it more to our liking. This house selling negotiating stuff is no fun. I’m not looking forward to that part of selling our house.

And who knew it was so damn expensive to sell your house! There’s costs everywhere! And then turning around and buying one. And our realtor is so magnanimous…if we use her for both transactions, she’ll knock .5% off her commission fee. Fortunately where we are, housing prices haven’t been affected as bad as some other areas. But there is still a lot of inventory in our area both in where we’re selling and where we’re buying. We’ve looked (spied) at some open houses in our neighborhood and I think we’re going to be in a really good selling position in comparison. Nick got the vanity and new sink installed in the hall bath last night. Tomorrow I’m off while the door guys are here, so I can finish painting and possibly start tiling in there. It’ll feel really good to get a whole project done!

Nick sure is taking a long time to go to Starbucks…I knew when he took his cigar with him he’d be a while. Grrr. I want my latte! I’m so spoiled…


  1. The man’s gotta have his smoke!
    Did you ever get your Starbucks? :0)
    The Dukes thing with Pop’s sounds like it could be kinda fun to watch.
    Who knows, maybe he’s hearing Abbott and Costello in his head. . .

  2. Dukes? Well, that brings back the memories. Those tight jeans, and no, I’m not talking about Daisy.

  3. Hey Lass,
    It is turning out to be a buyer’s market right now with real estate. My pal Zelda is starting a little company of buying and selling homes and she just got two places for pretty good prices. Hang in there though, you’ll make the sale. You might want to look for a new realtor though. Also Zelda says she always adds that the buyer pays the closing costs in the deal. They may not accept it, but then again they may. Can’t hoit.

  4. I think we’re all destined to be poor, the world is against us. I wish someone I knew would go to Starbucks for me!!! WHAAAA!!!

  5. Did you get that Latte?

    House selling and moving is so stressful.

  6. Sorry to hear the offer fell through. It’s stressful for me b/c I’m thinking of moving apartments; I can’t imagine having to sell and buy a house. Good luck!

  7. Yeah, Coy and Vance just weren’t the same as Bo and Luke 🙂 But if it’s on and it’s a C&V one, I’ll usually still watch, too.

    Do you have a TV with closed-captioning? My Dad used to turn the CC on all the time because he was hard of hearing.
