No word from any prospective house buyers today. As I included a quote yesterday, I thought I'd use another one today. From Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745), from The Drapier's Letters, No. 2:
"I have heard of a man who had a mind to sell his house, and therefore carried a piece of brick in his pocket, which he showed as a pattern to encourage purchasers."
Worth a try, do you think?
Although a piece of grey concrete masonry is not very inspiring, nor is it indicative of what sort of house it is from.
Any suggestions welcome.
As it will be two weeks, tomorrow, since the over-enthusiatic (but miserly) prospective buyer came to spend some considerable time surveying our home, I have decided that if we don't hear from him by then, he has given up his plan to buy. But, on the other hand, I think that if he is going to contact us once more, then tomorrow is the day.
We shall see!

We humans are creatures of habit so I agree...if he's going to return, it will be today. Saturday. Everything crossed that this is what will happen for you today. :-)

P.S. By the way, forget carrying a slab of concrete round in your pocket. Even a brick would be boring. Pop a photo into your wallet instead.
