Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams may consist of many subjects. I believe I may have had a sweet dream about food like Titus did, most likely during a nap when Carol was cooking something awesome.

Most of my sweet dreams are about people I love, and of course the occasional dream of someone I don't know at all. I've always liked the 1983 song "Sweet Dreams" by Anne Lennox & the Eurythmics. It's pretty lacking in lyrical content but the orchestral background is excellent.

Of course we Realtors sell the American dream of home ownership and who hasn't had a dream of living in a castle/mansion? Owning a home is a sweet dream and I feel very fortunate to have been able to have my own home(s) since I was 18 years old. The dream only gets better when you find someone to share that home with and even better yet when you raise children in your home. I'm looking forward to the day when we get to share it with grandchildren as well. It's a sweet dream.

Good morning Bob,

Now that song is playing in my head! LOL!! Yes owning your own home is a sweet dream. My parents paid their home off when I was little and I remember celebrating and my dad saying Homeownership is the American dream. Always buy never rent! I've always remembered him saying that to me.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX , like your dad I never understood the concept of renting. At 18 years of age my home payment was less then my friends rent. I was building equity and they were burning their money.

One of the best things I ever did was when my wife and I bought our first home.  We borrowed the downpayment from her Mom and paid that off in afew short months and have made very nice profits on all real estate we have ever owned.

Who could argue with your sweet dream, Bob? Sadly, we are increasingly seeing Americans who believe they will never realize the American Dream of homeownership. It's heartbreaking.

Nina Hollander, Broker that is one of the reasons I steered Tina towards the Air Force. VA loans as well as housing allowances. It is heart breaking. Home ownership also brings about pride of ownership, not only for the home it self but all things in general.

Hello Bob, I dream a lot in the morning before I way up always, most of them are good ones.

Me too Will Hamm but I seem to be the only one in the family so maybe dreaming is not hereditary.

I once had a small dog that loved fresh strawberries.  She couldn't get enough of them.
