The Blues

The weather is miserable out. I was down in the cities in hopes of doing some kayaking. I think I spent about a half hour out on White Bear Lake, just so I could say I didn’t waste the effort of bringing the kayak down.

I am now back in Duluth. I figured I could play video games just as easily here, as I could down in the cities. It is just as gloomy here as it was in the cities, with the added bonus of being 15 degrees cooler (45 degrees here).

I have decided to not make an offer on the tree fort house. I don’t think I could sleep at night with that creek eroding away at the footings of the house. Damn that house is cool though.

So here I am, I can’t find another house that would warrant moving out of the current house. The combination of not being able to find another house and the gloomy weather has got me bummed. At least I have my health.

    That house sounded cool, but I think you’re doing the right thing not getting it. It’s one thing having a $2,000 automobile investment turn out to be a lemon. It’s another thing entirely to be beholden to a bank for $100,000 or more on a piece of property that turns out to be a lemon. You can end up paying for that kind of mistake for the rest of your life.

    Don’t be bummed. Be happy that you have a place to stay, games to play, and rhymes to say from your cousin the fey.
