Must be pretty cramped quarters, or are all 60 tables folded on top of each other?

Doors, windows, walls, all that sort of stuff.

Wish mine was a joke, but I actually do live in a 70 foot long trailer (caravan, for you Brits) in Kansas. It's falling apart and for nearly two years I haven't had gas service (prices were getting too high) so I use electric heaters, cook everything elctrically, have no hot water.. in colder times I heat water for washing, in warmer times I take cold showers.

Sounds like hell perhaps, but I've gotten used to it and I find that I've saved a ton of money by going all-elecric. I basically live in one room most of the time and don't bother heating or cooling the rest :)

Oh, and my water all comes from a single hose ever since the pipes froze and burst back in January. I keep meaning to get that fixed :-P

You lucky bastard,

We where with 10 children and used to life under a rolled up newspaper, wich my father used to beat us up with everytime we got out of school


Luxury.

I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.

All fourteen of my houses are pretty similar. Most of them are ocean front, however the bigger ones aren't. But hey, a twelve million dollar property can't have both an ocean front house AND a mansion. I can't complain too much, I guess.

My house has been freezing cold for the past few weeks, but my parents finally decided to turn on the heat today! Woo hoo!

I am into murals - three of them. The full-wall one in one bedroom is of a forest - restful looking. It has some moss hanging from the trees. One bathroom has a large Hawaian scene - palm tree, sandy beach, ocean. The full-wall living room mural is a copy of a painting of Tuscany, Italy, as though you were standing on a terrace and looking out over a square pool, and beyond that are vineyards, and beyond that are soft-colored hills and gentle mountains. The other bathroom has a clown theme with white walls and circle swirls of red, yellow, or blue paint I stamped on them. (I have since found out a lot of people really do not like clowns.) Above the kitchen cupboards, which are in an L-shape, there is a one-foot open space between them and the ceiling, and I have 34 clear glass bottles or jars spread across them (oops, that need some washing.) Not too long ago I bought a new refrigerator. I thought I had measured carefully, but when it was delivered, it wouldn't fit under the cupboard. Turns out the carpenters had installed the upper cupboards at a slant that I had not noticed before. So I had to hire a handyman to plane the bottom of the cupboard off and now the refrigerator fits -snugly. Of course, I have a couple of Freddie pictures magneted on the frig. In the entry, I have my Queen wall, or more to the point, my Freddie wall. I'll try to scan it and put it into my carboengine member profile. (Oops, something else is in there temporarily.)


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
