I'm Done Here

Folks, I'm done with Vegas. With the traffic jams, incessant road work, crime rate, and congestion, I feel like a solitary crouton living inside a tossed salad. When I got here almost twenty nine years ago it was a very different place. The mob was still influential in Las Vegas, but they weren't interested in breaking into your house, your car, or your personal life (assuming you weren't doing business with them). The only place to enjoy Vegas for me is from outer space.

This is my personal anthem:

I’d love to have a cottage in Nantucket Island. This is where I’d like to live:

are you thinking of moving?

Tom, I googled real estate on Nantucket Island just outa curiosity; you got a couple million to buy a house? Hey, dream big!

Jaimie said...

Go for it, Tom! You've been talking about New England for a long time and life is too short to deny your dreams. Where there is a will there is a way!

I'd have to answer you with a "HECK YES!" I plan on moving. As soon as the conditions are right, my hiney hauls.


I’m very well aware of the fact that Nantucket is Kennedy territory (not just Martha's Vineyard). Which means the price of real state is ludicrous and that is one of the things that I have to work through.


THANK YOU for your encouragement!! It's so nice to have people who can take the fear out of change for me. Your words came at a time when I needed to hear them most. Thanks:)

O Tom, thou hast dashed all my hopes, you fickle young man...there was I, thinking you were going to take up residence in ole Blighty. I'm gutted.

Tom, Nantucket is beautiful! We went there last summer and really enjoyed it. It's a party town, though. Lots of young people.

The daily Mass I went to had about 80 people there. I have never been to such a large turnout in such a small church. I posted on my blog about it, with photos last September.

Oh, by the way, the real estate crunch has finally hit Nantucket. You can get a house there for about 1 million now. Nothing fancy, though. Those ones go for much more.
