Real Estate in the Foobisphere.....

I don't quite remember who it was but someone suggested that it would be a great idea to talk about how oddly convenient it is that houses simply seem to be available for the Pattersons and their friends whenever they need one. We start, of course, with the Pattermanse itself; Lynn might tend to get sort of nebulous about the past of the characters but her one consistency is that Connie Poirier told Elly about a house in the suburb where she lived that would be perfect for the family of four that the Pattersons were about to be. It's sort of fitting that we talk about Connie because she, for reasons best left unsaid, leaves town and sells her home to the Enjos so as to give Mike and Liz new visible minorities to hang out with. When Lynn needed to have Connie come back, she had Mrs Baird sell her home to Elly's pathetic friend. The next person to get a house when he needed it was, of course, Mike; the home in question is Lovey's barn of an apartment; it was perfect because it allowed him to horrify Mira. We also have to contend with Liz finding basement apartments as needed, Anthony buying the place Gord's family outgrew and the Housening itself. Simply put, houses are a lot like limousines, jobs and fancy weddings in the Patterverse; they simply seem to appear as needed.
