Beautiful view of the valley but only 750 sq-ft.  Kitchen has a half size sink, a tiny glass cooktop, under counter fridge/freezer, and no oven, dishwasher, or microwave. Over $400K.  HOA fees are $1400 a MONTH.

He's got far more than enough money to buy it cash.  Place is a little more than 2 hour drive from his primary residence.  Use to be a pretty good skier but is now 60 and hasn't skied in 20 years. Was a decent golfer but hasn't played in many years.  Says his wife has given him the "okay" to buy it.  She rarely ventures more than 3-5 miles from their house and likely won't go there more than once.

A bit weirded out by his proposed property acquisition.  Very out of character for him.  Has said he doesn't want to rent it out, which is what he does for a living owning more than 20 rental properties free-and-clear.  

Should I try to talk him out of it?


Is he asking your opinion?

Pretty sure he's never done coke. Rarely drinks. Has worked over two very nice houses nearby that he's never rented out, now worth over $1.5M combined. Refers to them as his man caves.

Not sure. Like said, seems out of character for him. Though, he has mentioned wanting to buy a castle in Europe in the past.

Sounds like he'll be fine even if he throws a bunch of money away on it, I probably wouldn't say anything.

I don’t know, maybe there’s a way to joke about how it’s not a smart purchase. Maybe he’ll pick up on your tone and ask you directly. Not sure I would come right out and tell him first, though, without his asking. Not your business unless he asks or you think he might be (medically) losing his faculties. I might say something if I thought a friend was showing signs of dementia and was about to make a buy like that.

Wife and Daughter are leaving for Vegas tomorrow for Mom Daughter 22nd birthday weekend. Anyway, I have three surgical masks. I've told them to wear them on the plane. They laughed at me. WTF? I mean, at least say they understand my concern and that I'm over reacting to the virus. But, I'd be wearing that mask on the plane. Further, I told them I bet they'll see people on the plane wearing them.

Saw two robins in the neighborhood this week, right after the snow storm. Either they’re sticking around thru winter now or they got a big shock coming up here.

If this isn't a random rambling then idk what is. So I'm a HS Spanish teacher. The other day I went off on a tangent about Slovakian pronunciation, showed a couple examples, and made an off-hand comment that if anyone did their upcoming presentation in Slovakian I'd give them 100% no questions asked. One of the little shits actually researched (Google translated) everything and did it Random Ramblings - Page 24 502811600

You're stuck with the 100, but you have to at least pick his pronunciation apart and give the little smart ass some shit, don't you? Random Ramblings - Page 24 502811600

No idea if the link above will work, so here’s the url. Make sure to turn up the volume.

If I didn't wear pants... like ever... would I still have my gut stick out like that? Or would it be less distinct at the belt line?
