  1. We had Ritz-Carlton and couldn't sustain it. I think there's no way in Hades that they would EVER "give" us another one.
  2. Hubby and I are attending an event in the Heights. Would love some recommendations on a good restaurant to go to afterwards. Thanks in advance.
  3. Please forget this horrible post hopefully you'll get the spirit of it thank you.
  4. I saw 1 typo already. I'm not trying to salad the house I am trying to sell it.
  5. I am trying to sell my parents home on River Drive in Park Place. HCFCD ( flood control) owns part of the land of the house it's on and that's called an encroachment. We pay them rent for the land and I guess that part of the house every year. So before I try to go salad I approach them first I asked him if they'd like to buy the whole parcel of land 1.12 acres and the house. They say no. Then I get a second survey because they wanted the first survey to see what I own so I got a second survey to see what they owned and asked if I could buy them out. Again - no. So the house has been on the market since April and we've had no serious offers. We I have been trying to have it appraised and can't find anyone willing to do so after they hear what the situation is. I need somebody who is removed from the situation to think outside the box for me. This is 1.12 acres of land right off the freeway and they have could be remodeled and be in coaching parts demolished and it was to be a nice house although it would be 2 bedroom 1 bath. My realtor has about giving up any is ready to be released me from the contract all I have to do is givie him the word. I thank I had a price too low which is why I need to get an appraisal but again can't find an appraiser. If there are a lot of typos in this please forgive me I am using my voice recognition software on my Android phone otherwise this would have taken me a year. Thanks for reading and if anyone has any ideas I'll listen to anything thanks a bunch.
  6. It happened to me, too. I just clicked the x in the box, and it left!
  7. Have to have estate sale. Thought I had one company, but after only one appointment that the person made, the other four were missed and I wasn't even called to be notified that they weren't going to be there. Arbor Antiques can't do it until November. I just need some suggestions. It has been sitting there ready for a sale - just ready to have it.
  8. It has been a coon's age since I've posted, but I need some advice, and just my HAIFers to know what's going on. I was born in a house in Park Place that sits on Sims Bayou. That was my home for 29 years. My parents lived their until their deaths, Dad in 2000, and Mom on June 4 of this year. To make a long story short, I get the house, land and contents. I was getting ready to have an estate sale sometime in September, when I get a lovely note today from Harris County Flood Control (herein HCFC). HCFC owns a portion of the property, and my parents rented it for years. Now. HCFC has decided to terminate their rental agreement, and remove the portion of the property that encroaches on their land. There is only one LARGE problem. They are not sure which land is their land, and which land is my land (from California to the New York Island). They have three tools for lack of a better term (not an architect here - just an unemployed Paralegal) - metes and bounds (which is what they say they are using to condemn my property - and I am a former Real Estate agent, so I know exactly what they are, and some of the monuments have been paved over), an ariel view (which is not to scale), and a plat map that has WRITTEN on it the fact that it is BOGUS - and I have a copy of all of them. Last Monday, the property manager called me INSISTING that I meet him in 20 minutes (I live a little farther away than that) to show him where his property is, and where my property is. Just eyeball it. I explained to him that I was an asthmatic, and I could not get out in the heat and humdity. I also told him that I knew that they were not sure which property was theirs, so they needed to have it re-surveyed. Now, here is where it gets VERY interesting. He showed interest in buying the property from me, and I was receptive. Then I get the demand to show him property lines (who could do that without a survey) and now, this letter. So, my question is, HELP?!?!?! If they don't know exactly where their land is, then how can they take mine from me. This is all I get. I am in the biggest financial bind of my life, and we were considering moving there because the house is paid for, and the one we are in now is not. Do I contact the media, call the jerk out on it, what do I do? PW
  9. I haven't been around since Ike, I think, but anyway, I am glad that I re-visited this thread. I looked at the Google street level map and saw a lot of the old homes that I remembered and visited in on Laurel Drive. I found this site http://www.trulia.com/property-sitemap/TX/Houston/77021/Laurel_Drive/ to be extremely helpful to me. The last time I was on Laurel Drive, I thought that three of the most beautiful houses that I had ever seen were gone. They weren't. I might have been on the wrong block of Laurel. I saw them on the Google Map, then that website above told me the years they were built. There was only one built in the 1970's, the rest (what remain, they are not all there, unfortunately) are the original houses. With the exception of one, they sure looked bigger when I was a little girl!!!!!
  10. Snobbish and ignorant I know one, unfortunately. Now they weren't like that in that 70's. I dated one.
  11. Demo it and pave a parking lot. It's the Houston tradition I'm serious. Me too!
  12. My Aunt lived at 7105 Sims Drive. It was a beautiful 1 1/2 story colonial. Have no idea what it looks like now. I am very ill at the moment, but would love to see the house. Could someone who lives in GV go by and at least look at it for me and tell me what it looks like? You can PM me if you don't want to put it on this thread. I loved Garden Villas.
  13. My kids LOVED that thing. They literally cried when it was taken out.
  14. Chinese Food from 888 Bistro in Clear Lake. Shrimp, flounder, crabcakes, hushpuppies. Cornbread Pinto beans Cole Slaw Stuffed Baked Potato with chopped beef Breakfast James Coney Island Chili, and cheese coneys with onions, and chili-cheese fries (alas, we don't have one in Clear Lake any more!) Mexican food from Gringo's And, I guess I am not a "real" HAIFer, cuz I don't drink.
  15. 5-7-9 Casual Corner I cannot remember the name of the store downtown that carried junior clothing Foley's Sakowitz Joske's Gap JC Penney's Margo's LaMode in Almeda Mall
