    I am hoping to finish house number 3 rental house out. I am having trouble finding a renter for house number 2 but my sister may have found someone. House number 3 is close to Akron University in Ohio and I would like to have it rented by fall.

  2. Son where art Thou

    Well I think he made it to England. I haven't heard of any planes going down.He is at the top of my S list right now. I guess I could check the bank and see if he spent any money.

Right now that is about the only excuse that will fly for me at this point. The free email he could have sent is going to cost him plenty when he gets back.

    When it rains it pours. I had my dishwasher back up and had water damage on my new counters that are only 2 years old. I did get estimates for the other damage around 20k but now my counters are cut out to dry out under them. and that is going to be another deductible to pay. I just picked up travelers checks as my son is leaving tomorrow. Just working and getting organized.
