Mel Gibson Moves On...

Life in Greenwich is never dull, dear reader. Would-be gentleman farmer and erstwhile actor/director Mel Gibson is turning in his pitchfork and putting his 76-acre "farm" on the market. Those of you with an extra $39.5 million in the bank may want to head over and take a look at the 13-bedroom, 16,000 square feet farmhouse that Mel has been calling home for the past few years. And perhaps check out the tennis courts, swimming pool, stable, putting green, and greenhouse as well.

But be prepared to pay the texes. Mel tried to get his lowered by adding some livestock to his acreage and declaring his homestead a working farm. But it didn't pass the smell test at the assessor's office, which declared: "Anyone can have a few pigs in their backyard, but a viable farm is more than having something for personal use. It's about producing a viable product." So good ol' Farmer MacGibson is shucking his straw hat, and looking for another place to hang it.

No, indeed, life in Greenwich can never be dull as long as we have the likes of Mr. G to entertain us.

Hey, Sarah, I thought you'd be pleased to read this post! I had you in mind as I wrote it.

Germany?! What gives?! Where are the kids?! Where is the Webmeister?! Have a gute Fahrt, as they say in Deutschland! ;-)

The kids are with their dad in Old Blighty, and I'm in Deutschland with The Webmeister.

Furthermore, I'll thank you not to comment on my digestive problems, sir. : )
