Goodbye, Old Paint

An ode to singing cowboy Roy Rogers.

Or a fond farewell to the house that we thought we were buying.  Goodbye house, it was moderately swell but mostly frustrating.

There are several reasons that we're walking away from the house.  Here they are, listed briefly:
1) LBP.  Not little black pants, lead-based paint.  It costs a fortune to get rid of this stuff.
2) The roof.  The roof.  The roof is (really, really expensive to completely replace even if it's not on fire).
3) How firm a foundation.  Except for the foundation in this house, which is collapsing.
4) It's electric.  And not grounded.  And dangerous.

The sum of the above: twice as much as the house it worth.

So, goodbye, old (lead-based) paint.  It was nice while it lasted.  No hard feelings.
