Okay guys, this is slightly off subject.
Here is your dream house.
This is where I am staying for the next several weeks.
I wouldn't mind staying forever, unfortunately these houses are far outside of my budget. I don't think I will earn in my whole lifetime what just one of them is selling for.

It's a babysitting job! Nobody said it was gonna be easy!

This is where I am staying for the next several weeks.
I wouldn't mind staying forever, unfortunately these houses are far outside of my budget. I don't think I will earn in my whole lifetime what just one of them is selling for.

Each house has about 5,500 sq ft, 5 bedrooms each with its own bath. Master bedroom is out of this world. Three car garage and about 50 feet from the beach which does not have much depth. At low tide I could fly on 50 ft lines without getting on to the one lane road between the beach and house. At high tide the waves sometimes splash on the road.

I have done some cleanup work on the Masterpiece section.
It should look better on small screens.

Does anyone have any updated information on Masterpieces that I can include?
Does anyone have any corrections to the information on the Masterpieces?
If so, Please send me a PM.

John, I will try to get you some info for your masterpiece section. I have been so busy here at the store lately that I haven't had much time to do anything.

I also have a picture of one of the 13 colonies in my gallery if that will help.

I just vaguely recall it, but I just can't picture it yet. Your photo will surely do a full memory recall.

I would rather you be very busy at the store then not.
I can wait for for the info until things slow down, which we hope doesn't but is inevitable at times.
