Property manager came through and initially freaked when she saw the floor.  But then Bill showed her the tenting in the back room and it became obvious the floors are rotting.  She said not to worry.  The problem with the floors was obviously not caused by us.

So it looks like we can start this trip without too many worries.  Phew!


  1. I wrote a reply earlier but the site froze. I'd say I'll try to recreate the previous reply, but there was nothing all that epic in it. I'll just write another reply.

    Even if the deposit is only one-third of the cost of one berth, that one-sixth of the total amount you won't have to come up with from elsewhere.

    I'm glad Lieutenant Colonel Bill is Mr. Safety. I'm also glad he received recognition from his superiors for having done his job so well.

    The dogs are a blessing to you on this trip, in that they will force occaisonal stops.
    pets in general do that to us in our lives. they make us metaphorically stop and smell the roses sometimes when we might be too busy or otherwise not take the time.

    My parents lived in extremely modest homes until our last one in northen California, which they just lucked into at a great time for buyers, on the day its price was dropped by 25, 000 becuse the sellers HAD to unload it. Our home now is nice, but not like our last home. Where we live now, property values are sky-high, so even a shack isn't cheap. My parents have made a few improvements, and once my medical school grants are guaranteed, which should be within a year, they plan to make a few additions. At least the house has a library and an extra bedroom. I shouldn't complain. The roof doesn't leak, my bedroom is awesome, and there is room for three grand pianos in the house.

    Thank you so much for the compliment, and have a safe and enjoyable trip.

  2. Thanks Alexis. So far, so good.
