The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Now that's an open house

File this under Things I Never Would Have Guessed but Perhaps Should Have:

Last year, her first in the business working with Classic Realty Group in Hollywood [Florida], she sold a small home to a young family of nudists for slightly less than $400,000, a preconstruction condominium to a single nudist man for $369,000 and an older unit on the Intracoastal Waterway to a nudist couple from New Jersey for $250,000.

Those people were ''in their early 40s, very cool, very nice,'' she said.

Nudists in general are a Realtor's dream, demographically speaking.

''They tend to be a little older, probably a little more settled, at a stage in life where they're looking to buy a home,'' Roberts said. "And, of course, they like sunshine and the beach.''

It was sorta cloudy today, wasn't it?

Some time ago in my hometown they built a nudist colony with a 20 ft fence. Still can't get over it.

Dwayne, I heard a rumor somebody's drilled a peephole in that fence. Better look into it.

Actually, there was a knothole in my fence, about an inch and a half across, maybe four feet off the ground. Used to be enough shrubbery on the far side to cover it entirely. Now, of course, neither shrub nor fence is standing.
