I know that Don and Margaret are just back from the UK and I saw this on ebay and just wondered if anyone out there had thought about a little holiday home over here. It has room for your collection of solids and I am available for lunch should you buy.
Ebay number 2384980194 cool.gif

Sorry I couldn't do a proper link but you got there Jack. If you intend bidding I hear that John Travolta is interested so maybe you could sell some of Lisa'a solids???
Only joking Lisa, don't panic! I saw it on the tea-time news and was blown away by it. Then reality set in and I thought of all the housework keeping it clean.

Now don't you just feel like putting in a bid to see what the reserve is?? cool.gif

Personally I'd be careful of this seller since he hasn't sold on Ebay before!! laugh.gif laugh.gif

Hi Nancy,

Wow, I just saw the Castle and it's beautiful!! It's out of my price range so I will settle for my Harrods Palace and the Taj Mahal rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

Sandra, I could donate some silver Rings? You think that would help? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I forgot to check...do they accept PayPal...in monthly installments for life? laugh.gif

It doesn't say how many bedrooms or bathrooms. What do you think? And what about all those turrets. Is there some sort of invasion being planned? Oh...maybe the next Solid Convention will be there! tongue.gif

Actually, I love it. We could ALL live there at the same time and never see each other....ever! Amazing...wonder how old the "tapestries" are?

So many questions...so little time.

Ok, I've got it all figured out. Assuming we could get it for a mere 9 million...

That's only $30,612 per member and we could each get it for 1.25 days a year.

Don & Margaret: Go the middle child!! (Especially if she's a girl!) laugh.gif

Jack: I think we can get more days in per member if each member had a 'wing' each instead of the whole castle, like Michele says, we probably still wouldn't see each other.

However, we could meet up in the very large grand ballroom for dinner and chat about solids! biggrin.gif

Don & Margaret - Just when I'd given up and decided the last 20 years of my life (raising kids) have been a total waste of time, you've given me some hope. Does this mean they haven't viewed me simply as a walking ATM Machine?

Glad you enjoyed Europe...your daughter is a sweetheart. smile.gif Be nice to your children...they decide which Retirement Home you go into.

Welcome home! blink.gif

Jack - 15 days to go so you may have to recalculate, but it does sound do-able! laugh.gif
