Sunday before Halloween

This is in the heart of downtown Montreal. Though there are skyscrapers all around, I managed to find one vantage point without them visible. This little park and cathedral have been looking very Halloweeny lately, what with the falling leaves and gloomy weather.

We keep showing the apartment and people continue to say, "I want it!" We reply, "Okay, just fill out the form so we can check your references and credit and it's yours." The people leave promising to fax the form to us while assuring us there is nothing tawdry on their credit, and then they never send it. There was one girl who said, "Well, I had a problem with (cellphone company) so I decided not to pay them." Spouse and I both thought the same thing - so when you have a problem with us, you will decide not to pay? She never sent the form anyway.

Yesterday, we finally got prospective renters who actually filled in and faxed us the application. Two twenty year old working girls who are moving out of their parents' houses. They both work at banks and possess credit cards. Tomorrow we'll know if they are in good standing on their cards and rent the apartment to them. This could be very good news.

I love that little corner. It's almost as if you're somewhere else.

Hope the girls are ok for you guys to rent to them.

I can't post anything this morning.
Did you have problem?

At least they are the "good kind" of "working girls." LOL.

I love Montreal in the fall. Well, anytime really.

I hope this works out for you both, that would be spiffy.

I noticed you posted at 6 AM yet it is almost noon here before your post appeared. Seems like it may have gotten trapped in a time warp or something. Halloweeny indeed!

Good luck my friend.

Sending positive renter wishes your way.

Do you guys still have that golden "money" candle? Couldn't hurt.

I'll be rooting for you (or is it rooting for the two girls?) that all works out well for renting the apt. I hope as you do to hear good news from you tomorrow.

Good luck on the new renters. It's gotta be hell worrying about who you'll get until you get them and realize they're not mutant freaks.

Great pic.

Much luck on the renter front. Hopefully since they work at banks, they understand the importance of good credit and paying bills on time.
