I prefer the checkbooks to the floors, so dollars are better than dust.
Had an email from my sister-in-law, only have one left, she keeps us up-to-date on Mac's family in California. She says our nephew is looking at land and considering building a house. Would you believe that construction costs where they live (the San Francisco Bay Area ) are around $450 a sq.ft. and about 300,000 to 400,000 for a lot. A bit rich for my money. One of the reasons we decided not to retire in California, though that's where we're from, too expensive and too many people. We like living in the boonies. Our house, if we moved it to California, would probably sell for way over a million, maybe close to two million. Obviously that's not what we paid.
Miss Kitty wanted me to tell you that today is World Cat Day and in honor of that she's doing even less today than she did yesterday. She coughed once today and we gave her the new cough syrup, she didn't say much, but she hasn't coughed since.
Mac has sold 3 paintings this week. Nice living with an artist.
