A Tenant for Lemona House
Wednesday, October 30, 1991
We have another lovely day. I am excited about seeing Laura again. I remember her about 12 years of age. She's 32 now. Laura arrives on time at Lemona with her boyfriend Terry, son Josh and baby Megan. They are lovely. We like them right away and they love the house. Laura's stepbrother Mike still lives in the house down the street. They want the house and fill out an application.
We join our friends for dinner in 1000 Oaks for Japanese food. It's great fun.
I toss and turn all night worrying that Laura and Terry cannot really afford the house.
That is the problem with doing business with friends: it can ruin the friendship when things go badly. Mom is already having doubts about renting to a friend who may not be able to afford the house. Interesting that Laura's stepbrother still lives in the house 4 doors down 20 years later. I think I read in California most people move every 5-7 years.
