Renegade Seattle Home Inspector Claws His Way To The Top

By

Probably most of you do not have the same screen view that I have. Far as I can tell, most of us working in the rain pay the most attention to rankings in our own state. Speaking of our own state, mine being Washington, I was looking at the rankings today. Boy, what a big shocker, over to the right I saw a real renegade home inspector. You can see that view right here. You will be surprised at just how young and handsome the guy on the left looks, compared to the curmudgeon on the right. Must be about forty years between those two guys.

Seriously, Charlie Buell, Seattle home inspector, based in Shoreline, writes great posts and he keeps things informative and fun in the rain. I would rate his sense of humor second only to my own.

Charlie is incredibly consistent in his dedication. It sure shows and he writes only quality content. Now that you know, friends of Charlie should congratulate him. Now if he would just quit tormenting yours truly and lose that goofy ghost of a bird that he stubbornly calls Raven!

James,

I had to go back and check to make sure the blog is still accurate. That Charlie is such a flake that he could have been pouting, refused to blog for a day, and got beat again by the lady behind him. Good news is he is still blogging. He has quite the cold. I am almost afraid to talk to him even over the cell phone.

Mr Charles,

Thank you for bringing that up again. Seems to me that you owe me money for managing your firm right before Christmas last year. Cough it up before we come after you.

Charlie, Great! When I get your check I can send the money to Wheat. That's Mr. Big Talk Nutsy's musical cousin. They say the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree in that family.;)

Mr James,

You said the check was in the mail. You mean the financing of the CD is part of some lame ponzi scheme in CT. Wheat might have to change the title of the vinyl recording to Teardrops From My Eyes. You are dealing his career a crushing blow.

That is assuming he ever had a career to begin with.

Here's a title; Fell Out of The Tree and Hit My Head, Ain't Been Right Since. Could be a country song.

James,

If you lived a little closer Nutsy would go kick your butt, and I would help him. Wheat would too.

I have several have-a-heart traps that would take care of all three of them.

Good plan Charlie. Then we could bring them to Barbara D. and have those nice folks in Searcy relocate the three of them. They could all be neighbors with those skunks.

Pardon me Charlie, but they do not make a trap big enough for yours truly. You just want to eliminate the cutting edge competition.

Charlie,

If Jimmy Q will send the money he promised, Wheat will be on your turntable -- your favorite album I bet -- within six months. Guaranteed. The kid has real talent.
