Dr. G, you'd better start saving those pennies - walk to work, take your lunch, you know all the usual things - oh wait a minute, I forgot who I was talking to. Never mind.

I struck up a conversation with a guy at the airport one day last summer who had come from Vancouver to a small town in Saskatchewan for a family reunion. After a few days at "the farm" he and his wife turned to each other and declared that they were not going back - even though neither of them had ever lived on the prairies.

They rented a house with whatever they had brought along for the trip and he went back and packed up the house at the coast and the deal was done. A couple of months later, he got talking to a guy at the post office who said he had a house for sale but the price would be pretty high because it had a new roof and furnace etc.

To make a long story short (or is it already too late for that?) this family from Vancouver bought a house in a small town in Saskatchewan, 45 minutes from the city, 3-bedrooms, new roof, new furnace, move in condition - $18,000.



Take care, Margaret

Margaret, the more I think about it, the more I am tempted to sell for over a quarter million and come home to a great house in small town Sask. for under $50,000.

Don, we could create a commune. Grow all of our own crops, raise doxies, and enjoy life to the fullest. Paix, mon frere.

Time to call it a night. I have been up late grading but my eyes tire. In two weeks, I shall be in Cuba. In that this is my second real vacation since I hitch hiked around Europe in the Fall of 1972, I think I have earned a bit of a break.

Agreed Marc, you have indeed earned that break. Never fear, I shall keep a watchful eye on The Shang in your absence.

I figure that my next vacation may be when I retire in 8 1/2 years. We shall see. Paix, mes amis.
