Well for the last 7 months I have been sitting on my bum doing nothing, No licence, so I cant ride, drive or work, or do any thing that I like doing with out relying on some one else to take me there, An estate agent comes to give me a free valuation on my house, I already know what it is worth, so a complete waste of time for him. Trying to drum up business, he says, do you know of any one else that wants sell a house, As a matter of interest, you can value my second house, he does a drive by valuation, and he comes back and gives me a rediculously high figure, I say to him, if you can get that amount for it, its on the market, But dont insult me by saying you cant get it after I sign to sell. So I tell my tenant I am selling, he says good, I was thinking of going back to the country any way. 3 weeks later he moves out, The agent rings on the Monday after and says they have a for sale sign up in front of the house, The following Saturday, the agent says I would like to come up and see you, Okay, he was not sounding very enthusiastic, So up he comes, he has the amount he said he would get, I sign on the dotted line, my second house is sold, I have been looking at Catamarans for a while, Australian boats are too expensive, On the internet, world wide, too expensive to import as well, $120.000 to import a boat from the USA, still looking around, BINGO, there is a 34 foot Catamaran in Fiji, second hand, with all the bells and whistles, Within my price range, plus GST Etc Etc, still within my price range, Lots of emails back and forth, licenced survey and haul out, all good, The money from my second house has bought me a Cat and given me enough to retire on, I am now retired, and now I am going to Fiji for a holiday and learning to sail my new Cat, I will sail it back home to Melbourne, and now looking forward to a life of cruising on my cat, Must buy a 250 naked Honda to put on the Cat so I can go places on it when I park my pussy on the beach, Its not a big Catamaran, so I call it a Pussy Cat, Shame I cant get the Bird on it, its just too heavy to lift on and off the boat. The day before I get my licence back, The settlement for the house takes place, I cant even go for a ride, I will be in Fiji picking up my Cruiser, But a long ride on the Bird is already planned for my return, Who said, you cant have your cake and eat it too, I am doing both, and the icing is magic, Whoo Whoo, [B]49 years of Hard Bloody Yakka and now its all over,[/B] And now I am a Cruiser, Hahahahahaha.
