La Casa de Aguacates

On top of disappointment, tragedy. Looks like the house will be sold to some horrible rich people who are going to tear it down and build a new house. I would very much like to call them a nasty, vulgar word or two. Why can't the scrappy middle-class kids ever get a break? Life stinks when it's not like the movies. I'm never watching Goonies again.

I'm sorry babe. That makes me sick to think of a beautiful house that will just be destroyed. What are they thinking? They'll just put a McMansion on that beautiful lot and tear down the beautiful Avocado trees. I wish they would base who gets a house on who would love it the best. You would love it the best, I know it.

How does one define love? and what constitutes the best? I'm sorry, I'm taking a philosophy class on love and sex this semester. I have already been told by the instructor that penetrations is a violent word. So i just gave him a penetrating look...I am sorry though! The right thing will happen for you!

And Steph! It was so good seeing you despite the circumstances. take care.

love the "Goonies" reference--have you ever seen the Disney movie "Summer of Magic"? (Haley Mills in all her glory?) Anyways, the unrealistic twist in this one is her poor family takes over (by tricking people)an empty, huge home in the country owned by a wealthy man that never uses it--in the end, the wealthy man is a handsome young man who falls in love with her and lets their family have it.

There are about 15 empty $2,000,000 mansions on the river blocks from our little over crowded rental...(sigh) We can dream, can't we?!!

Hang in there--must be something better around the corner

oh, to lose your beautiful house twice! I was really hoping you would get it this time around!

I truly believe that you'll get something better and that you'll be happier with it than you would have been with the other place. If it is the canyon you desire, there's bound to be something (although lacking in the same type of character perhaps). And- maybe not that particular canyon- as beautiful as it is. But something right will come along, and when you buy it, someday you'll say, "Remember when we thought our dream was the Avocado House? Good thing we didn't settle"

Maybe it's a sign you should come live in China.
