Re: ANOTHER HISTORIC HOUSE FOR SALE IN GRENADA

As we make our minds up, we could be in the market for another piece of property, but defiantly not behind Papa God back.

As it so happens, I'm a month into my own, final, house-building project, which my kids tell me to stop calling 'my final resting place'!! We jokingly started calling it the corny Dunroamin, which after living in dozens of countries, seems to fit. It's a good deal more solid than my last house, of Micky Mouse fame!

.....  So NH getting some new digs.  Up in the mini hills. Lo.
I see lots of concrete . Let's see if I can save NH some cash and give charm to   house design.
I am 90% finished . Covid put a halt to the finishing touches. I need a trip.
Anyhow ... 
Bungalow built , perimeter  4 walls  built with  concrete  bricks.   
Separations in the house   with  2x4s   covered with drywall (keeping  cool  ) . Only bathrooms total concrete.
Flooring wood , got some Guyana hardwood , beautiful flooring ,better than  WSS 'historic house'.
Wanna visit WSS. Its in the country ,  just rolling hills.,   pardon , minimal bush 
lol.

Piedmontemps? Piedmontagne? Perdmontemps? Me likkle village suffering from an identity crisis!!

"There are two versions of how Perdmontemps got its name. One has it from the French Perde Mon Temps – Waste (or Lost) My Time. But an alternative legend, from no less an authority than my grandfather, holds a different view. The town sits directly beneath a towering volcanic cone, Morne Gazo, (Mongozo), and the true name of the area, as spelled on postage stamps of the day, was Pied Montagne – Foot of the Mountain. I prefer that version. Whichever, then as now, Perdmontemps was no more than a few houses, one shop, two churches and three bars, strung out along the Eastern Main Road."

NH, you will love this one. Retirement aboard a behemoth.
Next port of call, St.Georges, Grenada.

Imagine the nickels spent at each port?
Good thing if the tight wads stay on board rather than step ashore and leave nothing but garbage.
