Everybody Condo!

jeff_duntemann and his wife, Carol, met us for lunch today, along with her mother, Dolores. Later, they came by the house, as we'd made arrangements to go down the street and look at some new condos that they're building there. Jeff and Carol are kicking around setting up a second household here in Chicago where they could stay with their nephew, Brian, and Dolores from time to time.

We left daisy_knotwise sitting on a bench while Jeff, Carol, and I took the brief 8 minute walk to the train station to see how far it was. During this walk, we also stopped at three condo open houses. As we marveled at the really ugly wallpaper in condo number 3, Gretchen called to find out what hole we'd fallen into, since she was sure that we could walk downtown and back three or four times in the time that we'd been gone.

Which we could have if we hadn't fallen into The Condo Zone.
