"It didn't matter that I was already a wife, mother, technically a "grown-up", but when we bought our first house I actually felt like a grown up, maybe some understand. But it always feels good to be able to paint your walls without having to get permission from a landlord or know your going to have to paint it back to white when you move. Truly Congratulations! Happy for you!"

"Well you are a successful person congratulations to you and all the best in the future. I have been here since 1982 and I'm renting a room in the basement of a house. But I have myself to blame for the way my life is going. And I'm sure that I will never have a house or any money to buy one. I'm just a janitor in a co -op building. And will have to work there till the day I die..."
