Local Decides to Buy ALL of Spain, not just cottage: Tales from Normal, Mn.: FICTION
Just got the text today from Normal, Mn., that peaceful fishing village in northern Minnesota, that one of the "Locals" as we term it, my own buddy, Herman, the local attorney and President of the Normal School Board, while on vacation in Spain began looking for a small fishing cottage to buy, and then when the Spanish real estate agents learned that Herman had actual cash, they urged him to buy the ENTIRE country of Spain. The texts are pretty terse, but it seems that if Herman does make an offer for the country, his offer will be competing with Germany, and the only question is who will get the best deal. And I know some of you are wondering....if Herman buys Spain, will they throw in Italy at no extra charge? Stay tuned.
