Buy my house

As many of you know by now, we've put our home in Redding, CA, on the market. The real estate folks put together a neat slide show, and you can see it here if you're interested.

Our younger son graduates from high school on June 4, and our nest will be empty. Kel and I are planning to move to Santa Cruz, CA, and live by the beach. We both work at home these days and can live anywhere, so we decided to do the coastal thing, at least for a year or two.

Our house, with its palm trees and swimming pool and mountain views, has been the California Dream for the past seven years, a great place to raise the boys. But now it's time for a different dream. Just the two of us. A smaller place. A down-sized lifestyle. And no guest room.

Gorgeous - but I can see where it might be a bit much for just two people.

Congratulations on getting the boys up and out and enjoy the new "empty nest" lifestyle.

Selma, perhaps they plan to vacate their room when we come to visit!

Hey, who needs a guest room? I'll bring a sleeping bag.

When we were kids, we called it a 'pallet on the floor.' Instant guest room!

You can all take turns on the sofa.
