Enough with the humor!

Home Stager with Shaken...with a Twist 216.633.2092

After my last two posts Dewars has done all it can! and My Dearest Mimi................. I thought it was time to post something a little more serious..............enough with the humor!


One Sunday afternoon a couple sees an ad in the paper. They can't believe their eyes. There is a house in the paper for $1000 that is in the nicest part of town. We are talking about a Highland Park mansion for $1000. They think this has to be a misprint, but decide to call anyway.

They say to lady who answers we saw your ad, and realize it is a misprint correct. She tells them no it's not & you are actually the first ones to call. 

They decide to go look at the house. They race over as fast as they can. They pull up to the most beautiful house on the block. 

In front of the house is a fountain that cost at least $30,000. They ring the door bell & the lady answers. She starts showing them the house. They realize this house is over 5000 sq ft and it is obvious that expense was not a problem in building this house. The house had marble imported from Italy & a chandelier imported from France. The landscaping was breath taking & the house had a great pool & a nice tennis court.

The couple said to the lady this is the most beautiful house we have ever seen, what's the catch?

The lady assured the couple there was no catch. The couple wanted the house for $1,000 but was leery of doing the deal. Finally the lady said you seem like a nice couple, so I'll let you know the truth.

She told them this house is completely paid for, and not a penny is owed against it. Well, last week I got a call from my Husband. He informed me he is leaving me for his secretary. He then told me I could have everything we own as long as he could have the proceeds off the sale of the house. I agreed and he asked me if I could sell the house while he & his new girlfriend hung out in the Caribbean.


Oh, I guess this is humorous too..............sorry!

When I saw this today, I had to post it............I think it's such a great joke.  Very close to reality indeed.  I have seen many spiteful things going on when a couple is divorcing.................imagine something like this actually happening.

I remember my own divorce 35 years ago and the break-up with my first partner 8 years later............yikes.  

No thanks for the memories!

Glad I could bring a smile to your faces this morning or even a little chuckle.

Thanks for commenting!

It is funny, but I begin to think of all the problems that will occur. Like the guy will have to sign the sales agreement and sign off at settlement. Now who is really sick. I know I am. What can I say, I have been doing this stuff for too long.

I have heard this story about a prized Corvette.  Too cute.  But I was wondering if I needed to wait until later today to comment here.  I'll have to sneak in each evening and say goodnight so you can say good morning :))))

Did anyone think that when they clicked on my post it was going to be serious?  I'm about due for one of those, but things have been so hideous lately, if I don't keep laughing, I'll scream.  Even the post I wrote about my car being stolen, my printer not working and my cursor going wild was written with tongue in cheek.

Life is too serious to be serious right now!

Mimi, I think I've come to terms with our relationship being over........it was fun while it lasted, but there's no need to sneak around and try to come back later and leave a comment.

In the inimitable words of Gloria Gaynor............"I Will Survive"..............sigh!
