Which is opposite of what I probably should be. The grocery store, from last spring, that is by my house and has been empty for three years, and I want to do something with......it sold today. Yippee. You yokels will be *gasp* shocked to learn they are turning it into a strip mall, and naming it Lasumthin another. First of all, look south, there is a vacant strip mall. Look east, there is a vacant strip mall. Go up to the spid - vacant stores for miles and miles.
Yet, I am excited. Because.....someone will be paying for improvements, getting out the rats and possum and I won't have to use all 45,000 s.f. at once. I can start with my 5K or so, and slowly take over the world. (Insert evil laughter.)
And best of all, NO DEBT. Isn't God good?
If that doesn't work out, I'm thinking pancakes, all day every day, from all over the world...I wonder why no one has thought of that.
