Somebody will come by to tell us what they think our house is worth, as part of the refinancing process. Will they be able to calculate the value of watching the Kitty sleeping in the sun on the living room floor? That’s got to be worth at least fifty dollars. And how about when I’m having my coffee on Sunday morning and reading the paper? I guess we could at least count the value of the newspaper. This web site (has a corny name, so I won’t reference it directly) comes up with a price that seems to discount the Kitty-in-the-sun value.
