Looking At the Sky … Mega bucks went here



Rich man, rich man, lived on a hill.
With our money he filled his till.
Investors said, "Oh, heaven sent!"
A Ponzi scheme, to jail he went.

Boy, one wrong step and you're in the drink! Beautiful, though...just dangerous for a klutz like me!

Happy Week-end!

Is this place for real?? You would thing that rock is a fortress, and maybe it is...until a named storm just passes by. The views in good weather is the payoff here. The views in a hurricane, well...

It's lovely, but my not my idea of paradise. ;-) Like Amazing Gracie, I'm a klutz.

I'm with everyone else - I'm not sure that I'd like this... but it makes for an awesome photo!

it's a beautiful photo
I LOVE your little poem - wonderful and timely except the buggers never go to jail

if a Wall St schemer does live there I hope he falls off the rock

I'm not so sure I'd like the commute but it is pretty!

With that poem, though, for a moment there I thought I was looking at a far off view of Alcatraz!

Very pretty, but I have to admit I might go alone but never with the family. I can just see my daughter plunging off the edge.

Awesome place to have a home. Talk about privacy.

Have a terrific weekend Jim. Big hug. :)

That is a very interesting spot for a house. Nice picture.

I like that it's built on a rock...!

I should've reference my photo as "rented condo!" I'd give anything (almost!) to live there year 'round.
We were fortunate to be able to spend a week there - and my heart wants more...
~~~Blessings~~~

Looks like a storm is brewing...

Yeah, I don't think I'd wanna live there even without my kids! SCARY!!! It does make a pretty picture, though. :)

Thanks for playing along,
Tisha
