I was mowing this house today and I noticed that the house diagonally from were I was sold last week and the people moved in. I see the home owner out side, so I walk over and introduce myself and hand the guy my business card. We talked for a minunte and I shook his hand and walked away. I called the owner of the house I was cutting and told the him that I introduced myself to his neighbor. He says to me do you know who that was? I said no that is such and such from the New England Patriots. I ended up looking up his number and sure enough bingo that was the guy. I was dumb founded, no I will not say were I was or who the Patriots players name for his privacy.

then whats the purpose of this thread? you don't hold a bone in front of a dog and expect him not to reach for it..... :waving:

It's called privacy, ever hear of it? Last thing I want is somebody knocking at my door all of the time beacuse they know I have some coin. I'm letting the guy live his lifewnormally, I'm sure he already has people bugging him and I'm not going to be one of them
