fantasy place to live

Post by gravy on Tue Jun 12, 2018 5:44 pm

After 10 years of living in my tiny casita , I lost my work space for my art ..... my fantasy is that I can find a 2/1 with few or no steps , maybe a small garden , and I would use the extra bedroom for a studio.... this would be for myself , a busted up 75 year old Marine living on a small pension ,and two cats that sleep and observe ... furnished .. ability to drink the water and flush TP down the toilet would be a plus
the dream might include living on an estate that had the above casita .... still handy and have all my tools .... I would need internet and TV access
I drive a "chocolate" so I will be spending my remaining savings on a serviceable Mexican car so I don't have to live near downtown Ajijic
AND ALL THIS FOR 5-600 USD ........LONG TERM ... OK , laugh but I felt I would ask all my old friends on the board ... who knows fantasies are sometimes fulfilled

Congrats Gravy! Do you need dishes, plates or coffee cups? If memory serves me I believe I gave you a shoehorn a few years ago. Take care.

I want to thank all you guys for all the good wishes and help during my transformation to a new place .. you are all great and I appreciate your support
while I'm on a roll ,I'm going to risk asking you for more favors .....I still need the following and am looking for CHEAP OR FREE ........
1) a working laptop or tablet that I can wi fi with on my porch while drinking my coffee in the morning
2) a computer table
3) a used wheelchair ( mine blew a tire )
4) a nice couch and loveseat .....hey a recliner (while I'm at it )
....for those who know me , I now have space to return to my art and will try to earn more ribbons from the ASA judged show ........
you guys have been great and I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask ...
thanking you all in advance

The bowls that I have are cereal or soup bowls. If you need something larger I can look through my kitchen cabinets.

Gravy, it's hard to find good useable free wheelchairs, the demand is far greater than the supply. Wouldn't it be better to just fix the wheel/tire on the one you have?
