Real Estate




This charming little outbuilding sits behind a farmhouse that's for sale down near Onemo. To the left of that flower bush is a garage which houses an old car, a Dodge or a Plymouth, I can't remember which and it really doesn't matter, does it? This would be the perfect studio for an artist or a writer or an amateur photographer or a trespassing daydreamer whose name is Chesapeake Bay Woman person who has some hobby that requires concentration and contemplation.

Hoping to find the listing for this property so I could link to it, I searched through pages of local houses for sale. Although I never found this one, I did discover that the Best Value, our smaller grocery store, is for sale. Well, the business isn't for sale but the building is. The price? $1,500,000. According to the handy dandy mortgage calculator, that means if I put down some ungodly amount of money I could own that building for $7,194 per month for the rest of my life! Best value indeed.

No, I can think of other ways to spend that kind of money, and it involves Bora Bora, Mai Tais and lazy days.

I'm out and about this weekend, and if all goes as planned I will have quite the story to tell come Monday. If things don't go as planned, then never mind.

Happy Saturday, the best day of the week assuming you don't have to work, and I don't. Amen.

A room of one's own is all very well, but a cabin at the bottom of the garden is even better.

Me, I am looking forward to hearing about you out and about adventures ...

I would love that farm house sight unseen since it comes with that adorable little building where ToonMan could set up all his editing equipment and I would have a living room that didn't double as an editing bay ... not that I am complaining ... not me, never, no whiners here

Oh boy, I can't wait for Monday, I leave Monday, but when I get to my first destination (OK City) I will boot up ASAP!

Oh, if I had a studio outbuilding, *sigh*. I shouldn't complain -- I have an office I could land a plane in IF I ever stopped dumping crap in it and could actually see the carpet.

But an outbuilding.

Click this link to see Cactus Petunia's art studio photo, halfway down the page on the right. You'll sigh heavily.
