    Default My place

    204 Douglas Drive
    Damascus, Va.

    Note: 1-27-07 After giving this some consideration after some very keen insight from some of you here, I decided that every now and then I will allow some hikers to stay with me.

    Feel free to drop by, never know I might just shove some food down your windy pipe.........................

    My name is Larry.

    Cool Beans, Larry. Sounds like you're doin' a lot better these days. Sounds like you have a plan. Just make sure you lay down the law ahead of time the way you're doing right now.

    I just acquired a small place where I am willing to put up some hikers.
    A few simple rules are as follows:
    1. No drugs or alcohol allowed on the premises.
    2. I don't mind if you drink or smoke the happy stuff, but if you are extremely under the influence of these items, I will not allow you to stay.
    3. Be considerate of my belongings.

    Right now all I have is floor space, beds will come later. There is no phone, computer, stereo, or television "YET." I have a nice long hot shower available for you and the laundry mat is right across the street.

    There will be a small amount of money to be paid so as to offset the costs. If you don't have the money, then I may have something for you to do as a work for stay. I won't have you breaking your back unless I have a job that requires that and then I will probably pay you to do the job as well. I don't know what the cost will be at this time but I will update this when neccessary.

    My name is Larry.
    ======================================

    Curious how many hikers can you take at any one time ??

    To avoid confusion, you might give it another name than "My Place." Take "Place" out. Just "Larry's" would work.

    TOW,

    How's your landlord with this? Just curious. Sounds like another great stop while in Damascus. Best of luck.

    As long as she gets her money she seems okay with anything I do. She set the rules down with me when I first told her I was interested in the place.

    Cool -- just didn't want to see you get into, how should I put it, deep "water" with your landlord. See you in May, if not before.

    It's not "mench" but "mensch", which is Yiddish (Episcopalians love Yiddish...it helps them feel guilty, which Episcopalians are very, very good at ) for "a very good and decent and kind human being." Sort of translates into "he's a dude." So, you're a mensch, dude. (yeah, redundant, but lawyers like that.)

    Reason for name is if you keep calling it "my place" that's what it's going to be called. That's how trail names happen, dude. And "my place" will get confused with "The Place".
