He says "eleven", that's just the guitars, does not include the 3 mandolins, 2 ukeleles, various drums, autoharp and didgeridoo. Or the amplifiers that are growing out of the walls.

He may be hiding a couple guitars from me...

Wouldn't surprise me if there were a few hidden instruments.

Yes, eleven doesn't sound right at all.
He should add a few more. Maybe get the number into the twenties.

We just got in from standing out in the rain during a fire alarm here in our Gatlinburg condo. Somebody's fireplace smoked up their apartment so they opened their door, which set off the smoke alarms.

Today is a tough one for me. 15 years ago today my best friend growing up was killed in a horrible accident. She and her fiancÚ were hit by a drunk driver and their car blew up with them in it. The really sad part is that they were both recovering alcoholics who had turned their lives around. The driver survived the accident and was only given probation and loss of license for 3 years. Diane, I miss you so much.
Oh Laurie, I am so very sorry. [[[[[[[[[[Hugs]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

I'm so sorry.

Love,
~Cat

Thanks, Cat.

I think it just hit me hard today because I haven't been feeling well and hearing about the recent crash where once again the drunk driver basically got off.

We talked to our realtor (who happens to be our neighbour) tonight and we agreed that we will probably list and start looking in February. That gives us awhile to really figure out if moving is the right thing to do at this time. We are very torn.

Our alarm goes off and no one even opens their door to see what the problem is. The last time was when someone burnt their toast in the toaster oven. It is always something stupid here.

There are no instructions for any of the residents on what to do when the alarm goes off. The first time a new resident hears it, they are the only ones who react until they see no one else out in the halls. Then they go back into their apartments. A lot of times it is just a piece of dust that got into the ceiling alarm. Just love it when that happens at three in the morning.

Instructions? Do you mean something like, "When alarms sounds, leave building"?
That's something I was taught starting in kindergarten a few times a year.
