Today I’m being “neighborly” and taking my elderly neighbor to get her flu shot. Her car has been sitting idle in the parking lot forever and I can’t recall when she drove it last.
That’s okay. I’m happy to help. That’s what being neighborly is all about. And I was raised to be good to people and lend a hand.
Supper With Kendra & Marley:
Kendra and her daughter Marley came over yesterday evening and brought potato soup from the restaurant Charleston. It was good.
We have yet to get Gracie to come out from under the bed so Marley can play with her. No matter what we do, we can’t get that cat to come out of the shadows. She’s just a very timid cat.
Marley is growing up so fast. She will be 13 next month. Her brother Riley will be 18. Next fall he’ll be going to the University of Oklahoma, my old alma mater as well as his dad’s and Kasi and her husband’s as well.
He’ll only be 90 minutes away. And in the same town as his grandfather, the girls’ dad.
I don’t know what he’s going to study there. But last time I heard he wanted to be a doctor.
Status Of Kendra’s House & Duplex:
Kendra is working hard on her duplex and her house. Hopefully, she can move into her house sometime after the first of the year. I know she will be relieved to get it all done.
Moving is so draining. She said that this house will be her “forever home.” Well, we’ll see. But she’s found a neighborhood she really likes.
Her house is in bad shape, but with her being a house flipper, that’s really no problem.
She’s having to gut it. Nothing had been done to it for many years and it was built in the thirties.
The good thing is that million-dollar houses are all around it. And they always say to buy the cheapest house in a more expensive neighborhood.
Just hard to believe she had to pay $250,000 for a house that looked like that. But then, as I know all too well, real estate had gone way up over the past year. And for the foreseeable future.
