All Pinzur, All The Time

Brother, can you spare some closing costs?

Over the weekend, Lady Pinz and I did a big ol' cannonball into the drained pool of home ownership. We're buying a condo in a new building in Hallandale Beach, which is the next suburb north of where we live now. We accomplished this feat with clever tactical negotiating skills:
 
SELLER: Your offer was nice, but we'd like to counter-offer for more money.
US: No.
SELLER: OK, then. We'll take it!
 
We're planning to take some pictures of the place later this week - we're not closing until the end of August - but here's an "artist's rendering," which does not do justice to the building's Romper Room exterior color scheme. 
  
 
 
It overlooks a canal of the Intracoastal Waterway, which is nice. Despite the fact that it has no dock, boat ramp or any other facility for seafaring vessels, the building is called the Hallandale Yacht Club. But if Madonna can call herself Esther (or, for that matter, Madonna), then I guess the developers can call this building whatever they want.

  • The big question here is... Is there room for Pups? Or are Pups even allowed in the building?


    Congrats on home ownership. That's so awesome!

  • There was supposed to be a strict no-Pup policy, but we were like, "Hell, no. This ain't the 1950s; you can't have any No Pups Allowed signs on the door."
    They got in line fast - there's now an open-door policy for Pups. I consider it one small step for Pup, one giant leap for Pup-kind.
