Michele :

I am cracking up at your remarks <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />. Condo means since we own the premises we also own all the problems including a major building flood in the past year that meant ripping out 2000 sq.ft. of carpeting. (Never again – we replaced it with porcelean tile). No calling the landlord here but thank goodness for insurance.

But even funnier is that we own a property management company that we founded 32 years ago. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> Since we are official retiring at the end of this year we have been deliberately decreasing our portfolio. As of now I only manage; a commercial strip center in North Miami Beach, an office warehouse complex in Miami Lakes, 2 office buildings in downtown Miami Shores, an office building in Bay Harbor Islands, an apartment building in Miami Beach, commercial strip in NW Miami, and 2 HUD subsidized buildings for the elderly in South Beach and 1 Hud elderly in West Palm Beach (total of 3 HUD – 435 units). Guess who they call for service! Guess who gets to lease, inspect and maintain these properties for owners, serveral being foreign owners/clients.

And you think I sit in my condo and yell FiX It! HA! <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ /> I Wish! <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

Do appreciate your emphasizing with us but we get early warnings and can prepare and evacuate to safer places. But the poor people in the islands, especially the Haitians are faced with utter disaster. Lot of organizations here are working to get badly needed supplies and help to them. It will not be enough, the country has been in ruins for many years now.

Hope the storm completely falls apart before reaching you.
