Lately, I've been thinking that we need a new barn. The one we have is fine ... it's just that I'm not content unless I'm building or rebuilding something. I think I mentioned some time ago that we have remodeled 7 houses (while living in them). And I'm getting itchy, again. My father was an architect-builder and I was the tag along. It's in my blood. Then ... I saw this book, just page after page of beautiful stables. But the cover picture had "inspiration" written all over it. Isn't it just divine with that black horse in the archway? I mean that could be Royal. And just think how many horses I could collect. Maybe I could finally have several draft horses. How great would that be! I just don't know why my "Hollywood" heart-throb thinks I'm going over the top. He says, "We don't even live in England". Oh ... that's the problem? The way I see it, this would require at least 20 acres of manicured lawns and beautiful pastures. I haven't seen many of those ads in Southern California, so perhaps we should move to England. I eagerly began searching the sites for a "stately home" as they are called over there. That was a fun thing to do while the football games were going on and Kirk didn't have a clue that we just might be heading off to the United Kingdom. After all, we have a new barn to build. It was during a commercial that I brought up the subject. Ok, here's the bottom line. I get to keep our barn, I can't move to England and I'm supposed to stay away from book stores until this blows over. Well ... it was great while it lasted. As for the football, I have no idea who won, but it's for sure ... I lost my game. Tomorrow, I'm looking around this place. Maybe I could find a few walls to move, or something.
