On the way to Mr. C.'s house I drove past a shopping plaza and many other homes in the surrounding neighborhood that were painted the same shade of green.
Mr. C.'s home was the same color.
In addition to owning his home, he let me know he owned the shopping plaza and all the other green homes (his rental properties).
At the age of 90, he's a living legend in his neighborhood and a self made success story.
He worked hard for his money over the years and that's why he thought it was "best to paint all his properties the color of money (of course he then let out a well deserved laugh)."
