re: Would you recommend a stroller for a 6 and 7 year old at Disney? - baldona
[quote]A stroller is the exact opposite of being slowed down. It allows you to keep going when they get tired.[/quote] Exactly. And we are not saying that the 6-7 year old uses it routinely. Heck you can park the stroller some where central and leave it most of the day. It’s really just for the e...

re: Traveling Abroad - What to do with dog - baldona
Do you have anyone at work with trusting teenage kids? I watched quite a few pets in HS and my parents use friends kids all the time. The risk is a raging party all weekend, occasionally the dogs have shite in the house or something and the sitter not cleaned it up. There are certainly risks. But it...

re: Best/Worst Parental arse Whooping(s) You Received Growing Up - baldona
I got beaten with a wooden spoon plenty. My mom would cry sometimes after when it left a mark. I don’t blame her at all. One time I mouthed off after and told her it didn’t hurt. She took a huge fresh bar of Dawn White soap and stuck it in my mouth for 2 minutes. Longest and nastiest 2 minutes of...

re: Do I have Options? - baldona
If you are just talking 1-2% here and you are ready to move on, you should also consider taking this as a costly lesson and move on. It wouldn’t be the first time a deal fell through, you relist, and it takes 60+ days to close again. Bird in the hand....

re: Do I have Options? - baldona
How much are you talking about? I’m not a lawyer, I’m just saying there are almost always ‘outs’ with moral flexibility in real estate. There’s always BS going on. My instinct is saying that you got a cash offer with quick close because the buyer knows it’s a hell of a good deal. Almost too good....

re: November MT Hunt - baldona
[quote]Hunted nov 7-11 [/quote] 2 tags filled in 5 days is incredible. Great picks. So you hunted the area between Gardiner and Yellowstone? We stayed a night in Gardiner this past September on a Yellowstone trip. That’s a crazy town, so far from anywhere basically. Would be a crazy life. I ca...

re: Do I have Options? - baldona
Did you for sale by owner? Because you should fire your realtor if not. You should always take 7-10 days at least on the market. Someone could be on vacation and come back and never have a chance to make an offer. There’s always an ‘out’ until the docs are signed, you can decide not to sell for s...

re: Liability on a bounce house - baldona
[quote]Probably better questions for your insurance agent. I would imagine they'd look at it like a trampoline?[/quote] Well I have an umbrella policy.

re: Question for OT Ballers in Gated Neighborhoods - baldona
The cheapest method is to have a couple of neighbors throw up security cameras with recording. It’s most likely it’s neighborhood high school kids or college drop outs. I lived in a gated neighborhood and we had gate codes for everyone including the school bus, post office, etc. We used quar...

Liability on a bounce house - baldona
I have an offer to buy a kids commercial bounce house for pretty cheap. Likely get over 50 uses out of it with 3 kids under 5, multiple bday parties and what not. Should be easy to justify, great exercise and fun so I don't mind the expense. My question is on liability and letting friends borrow ...

re: Would you recommend a stroller for a 6 and 7 year old at Disney? - baldona
[quote]Just have your family get in line and go park the stroller and catch up to them, it's not that hard. It's nice to have a mobile shady spot for them to take a quick nap. [/quote] This. Rent it OP, worst case scenario it was $100 wasted. That's a hell of a lot better than dealing with a...

re: Landlord question - baldona
Op, as said don't communicate with the parents. Only the tenant. 2ndly, if you don't think its a huge issue don't let it be. First thing I'd probably do, is go get a lawyers's opinion and maybe have them write a quick note to the tenant on how a swamp area is not a "health" issue lol. So half...
