Home Again-but I added a step.

October 8, 2016


I have been busy.  Today I drove over 630 miles. I got home by mid-afternoon and as always I was glad to get back to cool and comfortable Casa Bob.  Shortly after I got home, I received a call from my realtor in St George saying that my offer on the above house had been turned down.

So to recap my stay in St George: One bronze medal for the 100 meter dash, one bronze medal for playing really bad softball, and a decision to move to St George, Utah.  I hate adding steps to a plan but every time I go to St George I feel like I belong there.

Why did I not buy the above house?  Good question.  It has a bite-your-knuckle view out the back that is just too pretty for words.  The house is 4 bedroom and 4.5 baths.  While the idea of that many bathrooms appeals to me, at this age I never like to be too far away from one, the four bedrooms was an issue.  I have trouble maintaining activity in one bedroom so why would I need four. Also this house came fully furnished with nice furniture. My taste runs more to Early American Garage but I could have gotten use to that furniture.

And that view.ise0xt18nghxci0000000000

But there is a problem and here it is:


This little jewel opens onto Hole #4 of Sunbrook’s  27-hole golf course.  You could chip off of your living room rug and have a fair chance of making the green.  So that is the problem-too many good choices.  Oh well.  Everyone should suffer the way I do.

I have been busy since my return.  I have decided to sell my home in California and then go to St George and pick out a new house. I have my house listed and all indications are that it will sell fast. Once I am homeless it will be easier to make a choice on my next home.  Or I could just store everything and become a citizen of the universe.

After 40 good years in California I have become restless and I feel it is time to go.  Leaving my friends here will be difficult. But it is a $100 round trip ticket from Stockton to Las Vegas and I can pick them up at the airport.  And everyone needs to go to St George at some time because it is the launch point for Utah’s national parks.

Come along with me on my Next Chapter. Like all good adventures I have no idea how it will turn out.  That is what makes it exciting.
