Good morning, Paul... that's a great way to put it... maybe that's why I've never done much planning... I move based on the opportunities that fall my way.

HI Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - What an ominous sunset.  It seems to mirror the quote. Weather can sure throw a wrench into the plan ...as an example.

That's a really amazing sky, Paul.  We've been having some spectacular sunsets here in Sacramento the last few days.  I should get out and photograph them.
