will you spend your days repeatedly blacktopping your own driveway and spray-painting your address on your curb?

i was thinking more like flit around the globe on an epic adventure without having to actually move or do anything, so yes, repeatedly blacktopping my own driveway sounds about right.

just read philip pullman's His Dark Materials--young adult reading at its finest! in his world bears wear armour. harry potter who?

anyway my pretty derogatory statement (sorry) on gypsies was a clearly obscure allusion to a 20/20 or dateline story from a few years ago about american gypsies (tinkers/travelers or some sucH) who travel around (of course) offering unsuspecting homeowners to replace siding, blacktop driveways, etc.--then they do a really bad job or never do the work at all.

all you need is an rv, a driver, a personal assistant, and a little wi-fi...you would be straight.

hmm, very good call, kid D. and when i ran low on $ i could get out and replace siding on peoples' houses. & do a bad job. that 20/20 does sound familiar a little bjurk, i can picture hugh downs saying "gypsies."
