Almost there

This morning, I dropped off a check for the balance of the price on our new back yard — quite a chunk of change to be handing out just a week before Christmas. I suppose I could tell the kids that they're getting a back yard for Christmas, but I doubt they'd understand — what's the difference between a back yard you can play in but don't own, and a back yard you own? So instead, I'm telling them that they're getting a treehouse. :-)

Wonderful! Congratulations! Some day, you can tell the kids (when they're 30 or 40), and they'll understand and admire you even more than they do now.

That's great news. The basic difference between a yard you own and one you don't is that you have more control over what other people do there. In other words, it's more likely to be there in a few years.
