And I really liked the old guy. He was funny, friendly, senile, deaf (I could make as much noise as I wanted) and just an all around great old guy. I'm going to miss him. I'm at least glad he got to see the house next door get pretty again before he passed. He was happy. so now the house next door will be going up for sale. And I've built a decent friendship with them, that they are giving me the first dibs on the house...as is. They just want to offload it, and move on. I can prolly snag it really cheap, and it's not really in that bad of condition...it just needs to be updated a little. I'm thinking that I might pull out another loan and buy it, rent it for a while, build it up and turn it in a year or two...that way I'll be able to judge who my new neighbor will be. Or... I'll pass this deal on to someone who's cool, looking for a fixer-upper, or a first house... but the rush will be on to pass it on before it hits the market. So...who wants to be my neighbor? It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood, A beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be mine? Could you be mine?... It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood, A neighborly day for a beauty. Would you be mine? Could you be mine?... I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you. I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you. So, let's make the most of this beautiful day. Since we're together we might as well say: Would you be mine? Could you be mine? Won't you be my neighbor? Won't you please, Won't you please? Please won't you be my neighbor?
