Gary, Janice, and a Little House

Big news! JB and I will sell our sweet little condo in Provincetown and will buy this sweet little house in Provincetown. Single family homes in Provincetown have been and are absolutely out of our price range but somehow destiny has found us this place and it is perfect for us.

I am reveling in sharing the news with my friends. Below is an email exchange with my friend, Gary. JB and I and Gary and his wife Janice have good times together.

In a message dated 3/13/2013 3:02:56 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, writes:

hi gary!

whew! exciting.

thank you now and always for your help and friendship. 

hope to see you and janice soon

love karen
