#1. Move back to West Texas.
#2. Downsize considerably when this place sells.
We have begun to seriously get things boxed/packed up and the property cleaned up to show.
The market is good right now, tho there are some delays in closing due to Covid19.

(but I'm also 1/2 seriously considering adopting or "appropriating" a foreign accent of some kind since that seems to be all the rage.)

Can and willing to help with #1, might be able to help with #2 depending on what we're talking about.
Have Truck and Trailer, will Travel.



There are more trailers, different trucks now. If I can't transport it, you'll most likely need a semi.

My 2021 is starting with a summons for jury duty. Quick too, 12 days from now.

Desperately holding on to things that have no meaning?
Watching the kids grow up over facebook and wishing I never left Ohio?

I want to fix a couple things on the Mustang. Get my tools sorted out.
Hopeful to either find different employment or get a transfer to a different department.

I miss grabbing a beer down at the local watering hole, I hope to be able to enjoy a cold draft and cute bartender.

I've always enjoyed being called for jury duty and always tried hard to make it on to the panel, but now I'm beyond the age that gets a summons.
The most I can do now is sit and observe, but until Covid is settled down, even that is out. I haven't been in the district courtroom this year but have heard the jurors are spread out all over the spectator's seating area and witnesses kept secluded or testimony is submitted via video or written sworn affidavit. I was a deponent early in the year but the case never actually went to docket and I was advised about a week ago, that statute of limitations was up on it. .

I don't know. In this county tho, they don't even send out jury summons for anyone 70 or older.
And, I know Texas in general, 70 or over is an automatically accepted excuse/exemption if one does happen to receive a summons.
(Probably assume we are too senile to serve...can't stay awake long enough, or can't sit for long periods of time without needing a pee break)

2021, we would like to get one rental property paid off. Last April we decided that was the goal, she thinks 4 years, I think 2 and some. We wear at $180K some, we already paid $90K + of the balance before the end of the year but, that included all my exercisable stock options so, there are no more magic pools of money to pull from my butt.

https://www.zillow.com/home...5116/153396251_zpid/

When making sure I hit the one year date for the house we live in, I sold the last of stock that I used to churn to pay our property taxes with. It was fun to do this but stressful, I would not want to do that with the whole enchilada. It was about proving that I was right by being all in.
https://www.zillow.com/home...95118/19697417_zpid/

I am duplicating some valuable guava plants and starting some from seeds. One from seed that I am starting I call "old man". It is large, soft, light flavor, and hangs like a set of balls. My wife' family will have dibbs then I will sell some. I would like to get the seedless guava with the large round leaves big before I sell it, it is a very pretty tree.

I hope you do well with the 2 properties!

(Those valuations on Zillow are unbelievable compared to here and even over in Houston/Harris County 45 miles south. They each would value about 150-200K here. )

Thanks, the valuations are stupid, if I was not established, it would be idiotic to live here. housing expense to wages, infested with liberals, income taxes about the highest in the nation. I have a total of 5 properties, the rents to value puts the returns under 5% before expenses. Not the right market for someone entering the market. I have good renters for the moment but, Covid 2021 could change everything.

I’d like to lose my COVID weight. It’s not a ton but it’s enough. And I’d like to get my wife pregnant

I bet your property is viewed well by the market right now. Where are you moving to in West TX? I couldn’t do it. Not enough people out there for me. I get claustrophobic in a city city, but still like the metros.

Probably back around San Angelo, tho I personally would prefer farther West to Mentone, a small town, the county seat of Loving County.
I don't mind metro areas except for the traffic and noise. People don't bother me, but, I need to be able to see large expanses of sky & one or 2 of the horizons.

One of my projects this year is to transform my “Stock”, (as in livestock trailer) into a ramp load motorcycle/utility trailer. Something I can transport, secure and keep my Valkyrie, zero turn mower, wheel barrow, tools or anything else protected from the elements during inclement weather. The trailer currently has cargo style doors that a friend and I are transforming into a ramp door that will still work as a cargo style door when I choose to use it that way. We’re about half way done.

When completed, I will be able to load up without having to carry along and use ramps. Hopefully our ideas will work.

2020 is the year of the Rat. As it is still 2020 over here the craziness will continue for a while longer. When Chinese New Year arrives on February 11 it will be the year of the bull. The Rat departs soon and the Bull will start. Sounds about right.

If you'd move to New Jersey, everybody'd think you have a foreign accent.

Some of my goals for 2021:

- Make my hobbies self-supporting
- Keep Big Brother away from my toys
- Replace the daily driver with something newer

My daily driver is a VW Jetta TDI. It has a turbo-diesel engine, and a 5-speed manual gearbox. It's great on fuel economy, and works well as a general usage vehicle. The little diesel engine has enough torque to pull 1000+ pounds on a trailer like it's not even there. Plus it averages over 40 mpg.

However, the car is almost 20 years old, and it's becoming a maintenance hog. I do most of the maintenance myself, but there's a constant stream of parts coming in, to keep the car on the road. I feel like I'm replacing the whole car, a piece at a time. At this point, it may be wiser to replace the whole thing.

I'm checking the market for used Priuses, and the prices are good. So that may be my next daily driver. I hope it can pull a small trailer.

No matter what, I could never figure out a way to get a broke down Fiero to be able to pull itself home.
