Fishing Trip? A joke to share this Saturday morning!

My friend’s husband recently called home one Friday morning and told his wife, Anne, he’d been asked to fly to Canada with his boss and some friends for several days of fishing.  

Anne was a little taken back, but her husband insisted that this was a good opportunity to get that promotion he’d been wanting. 

She relented, and agreed to pack clothes for a the weekend, and even climb up into the attic for his rod and tackle box. 

He told Anne they’d be leaving around 4:30pm and said he’d swing by the house to pick up his things. 

At the end of the conversation he added, “Oh, please pack my new silk pajamas too.” 

Now Anne thought this all sounded a little odd, but went ahead with the packing. 

Sunday evening when her husband returned looking tired, she asked if he caught many fish.

He said they had caught Walleyes, Bass and Pike.  Then he asked, “How come you didn’t pack my blue silk PJ’s?”

Anne, with a sly smile said, “I did, they’re in your tackle box!

TAX CREDIT CAN BE USED FOR DOWN PAYMENT!

Further Incentive for First Time Home Buyers

Shaun Donovan, secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, on Tuesday said that the Federal Housing Administration is going to permit its lenders to allow home buyers to use the $8,000 tax credit as a down payment.

Previously, most buyers wouldn’t receive the funds until after they filed their tax return, and that deterred some people from using the credit. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® has been calling for the change.

“We all want to enable FHA consumers to access the home buyer tax credit funds when they close on their home loans so that the cash can be used as a down payment,” Donovan says. His remarks came in an address to several thousand REALTORS® gathered Tuesday morning at “The Real Estate Summit: Advancing the U.S. Economy,” at the 2009 REALTORS® Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington, D.C..

He says FHA’s approved lenders will be permitted to “monetize” the tax credit through short-term bridge loans. This will allow eligible home buyers to access the funds immediately at the closing table.
