This picture captures 4 of the great features in my finisher home: central air, gas powered radiators, hardwood floors, and new windows. Of course, the “SOLD” sign is my favorite thing in this photo!

Many thanks to Joan Sidoli (buyer agent), Joe Luisi (loan officer), Jennifer Jones (insurance agent), Matthew Stewart (attorney), George Forney (home inspector), Brooke Neider (loan processor), and Arlene Unger (seller agent).  They helped me buy my finisher home!

Good Finisher Home

This is how the realtor described my house:

“CHARMING all brick Cape Cod with lots of potential. Good starter home with newer gas furnace, central air, updated electrical service, Bathrooms have been upgraded. Hardwood floors throughout. Rear sun porch, unfinished basement with one car garage.”

20170316_151215This is how I describe my house:

CHARMING all brick Cape Cod style home with endless potential.  Good finisher home with newer gas furnace, central air, updated electrical service, Bathrooms have been upgraded.  Hardwood floors throughout.  Unfinished basement (man cave).  One car garage.  Plenty of backyard for gardening and Beagles.  Near downtown.

20170316_153441I call it my finisher home because this will be the only home I will ever own.  If readers keep visiting this blog, they’ll see my personality define the look of this Cape Cod.  Of course, I will write about other things, too.  Readers can expect to see stories about:  Waynesboro (Pennsylvania), nearby Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia, my photography, my artwork, my pets, and some biographical things about myself.

Lowe’s in Waynesboro, PA

frigid-february-leaves-nothing-but-my-snowprintsMy refrigerator died.  I bought a new one, online, from the Lowe’s in Waynesboro, PA.  On the delivery day, we had the biggest snowfall of this season (so far).  Schools and services were closed throughout Franklin County.  I expected Lowe’s to cancel their delivery because of the weather.  I was bummed by the thought of rescheduling.  Being without a refrigerator for 4 weeks is extremely inconvenient;  especially with the long hours that I work.  Well, imagine my surprise when I was awakened by the sound of a delivery truck.  They got my fridge set up, and actually took the time to pet my dog.

This isn’t NYC or the White House. It’s my smalltown’s Christmas tree.

This is a picture I took with my Samsung S7.  It captures amazing photos; even on foggy nights like this.  There were lights from the christmas tree, store fronts, street lights, traffic signs, and cars.  So, I turned off the flash.  I set my Samsung camera to automatic. Then I snapped the shot.  That’s all I did!
