Which reminds me, I should be a nice person and
print those out and leave them in the kitchen drawer like Addie said.
I hope that who ever buys our home will enjoy
it as much as we have, and I hope that's it SOON!!!
I did that when I sold my big house where I raised my kids. My late husband and I lived there for 35 years, and I wanted to leave it with love inside for the new young family who bought it. I also left them with a list of trusted local workers I'd used through the years. The night I left for the last time, I left a bottle of Champagne with two glasses in the fridge, and fresh flowers with a note of welcome from me.

I haven't read all 600 + posts on this thread but I'll bet ya this one is in the Top Ten.

I don't plan on leaving this place except in a box but I'm going to look into arranging this when I do.

Thanks so much friends. It was the toughest night of my life closing that door with my boys grown and my husband gone.

Life went on.

Yes it does. Always had to leave the door open at the first stop (about 3 inches open) with an electric or it reaches temperature and cycles off just like it does for baking (even the broiler has a max thermostat setting which shuts off the element). Our gas stove won't even let you broil with the door open - first it beeps a warning, then shuts off if you ignore it.

Great idea! Sort of like what I did a couple years back when I sold my off-grid home outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Just as I was leaving the house for the last time, I left a bottle of cheap wine on the table... along with a can of Spam and a box of Kraft Dinner.

The note said, "I hope you like your new house as much as I did... here is something for your first Red Neck meal here."
