    You’d have to go into politics for that kind of job.

    Catherine, what a pistol Brian is. Maybe he could chip in by having a paper route, wash cars, mow lawns to help out. Run that by him and see how that flies. Best to you.

    Oh I LOVE Monterey. My best friend has a 2nd home there. I miss when she lived there as her main residence and I would drive to visit her at least once a month. I have a long history of loving Monterey from back when my college boyfriend liked to golf there and he would take me away for weekends and we would golf, drink wine, walk around Carmel and go out dancing in Monterey. Monterey also had some of my favorite loan officers from North American Mortgage and the RBC Mortgage. Can you tell I miss Monterey?

    (Laugh) This comment of yours made me almost spit coffee out my nose – I laughed so hard.

    Actually he is quite the mercenary when it comes to figuring out ways to make (and horde) money. Ok, most of the time it is money that he has maneuvered out of me …

    True, this conversation stems from him wanting me to come pick him up from school every day…

    LOL! Now that would be the perfect job! Too funny!

    Oh from the mouths of babes… If you find a job where you don’t have to work tell them you have a sister. :-)
