Playing Hardball

We had a wonderful time in Las Vegas , George and Judy have such a beautiful home and are always so welcoming. Here are some pictures of the backyard. The first is the temperature, it was about 100degrees every day. Just perfect weather for enjoying the pool and the kids outside.

Here is the pool we lounged around in first thing in the morning. As you can see we were really roughing it.

To take the picture above I am standing under a little cabana. Below is a picture of the tile work on a table out on the patio. It is so pretty, really makes you feel like you are on a beach in Mexico.

The kids would enjoy root beer floats at the bar with Grandpa George. The bar has the same beautiful tile work as the table above.

Now for the hard ball part. We made an offer on a building on Thursday of last week, they sent us a counter offer on Monday. Today Paul and I sent them another offer. They are looking for a quick closing date, so we are low balling them a bit...if they are in a hurry to sell then we have the advantage (I hope). The building has been on the market for almost three months and we are there first interested party. I will keep you posted on what the scoop is as things come along. Wish us luck.

I remember the days of sneaking off to Uncle Dave's house when we were dating. We spent hours each day in his pool.

I'd run home about 1/2 hour before Gran would get home and start dinner real fast. There were times I misjudged because the water felt so good and dinner was late. Boy did I get into trouble. It was worth it though.

This is a great time to be buying property. I'll cross my fingers and hope all goes well with the offer.
