Landed Gentry

Michael: Today, I, Michael Scott, am becoming a homeowner. Investing in real estate.
Dwight: Diversifying. Smart.
Michael: Yes it is. Yes it is. It is very important to own property. Back in olden days, they would not even let you vote unless you owned property and they'd throw you in the stocks and humiliate you.
Dwight: And it worked. They should bring the stocks back. People'd obey the law, there'd be less troublemakers.
Michael: Maybe.
Yesterday, in a fury of forms and signatures, Noah and I officially earned our right to vote... in the world according to Michael Scott.
Photos and posts to come I'm sure.

How exciting -- congrats!! I want to see pictures :) When we closed on our second house Todd was traveling for work, so I had his power of attorney. I signed my name on one line, then on the next line I signed his name, then wrote "by (signed my name again) his attorney in fact". Talk about writers cramp.
