Oops, I forgot to mention after all the drama about trying to buy that house in New Orleans that it didn’t work out. Oops. The rapacious sellers simply wanted too much money for a house equipped with an antique electrical system and plumbing that was essentially a bog.
I looked it up just now and it’s back on the market with an increased price tag. Wow, just wow. When I was considering it, the price they were asking was a chunk over comparable places in the neighborhood, so how they’re justifying this is beyond me. They do mention in the description it has “updated” plumbing, which I assume means they’ve patched up the sewer.
I’m still looking for a place there, but there’s nothing on the market and probably won’t be until after New Year’s.
Maybe I’ll just invest in muscular Australian youths.
