Good News....

Or not, depending on your point of view.

Guess what I got for my Birthday?

A gift card from Borders?

Well, yes. But that's not what I was referring to. I got a mortgage for my birthday, sort of.

Wow. That sound real exiting. /sarcasm

Gee. Thanks. But the important thing is that my Grandparents, who I was renting half the house from, no longer have a mortgage payment to worry about.

But you do. And don't forget you get to pay property taxes in one of the most overtaxed parts of the country now, too.

Yeah, I know. That's why this is kind of bitter-sweet.

Well, since I'm now a property owner, I think that we should go back to the concept of only people with a vested interest (i.e. property owners) being allowed to vote in local elections. (And by local, I'm including the Governor and Congress) That should take care of some of the tax problems real quick...

Welcome to the wide wonderfull world of propery ownership. Maybe the hidden costs and problems not drive you as batty as they did me when I first bought a house.

Heck, I've was in favor of restricting the franchise to property-owners even back before I owned property.
