We got down here into spring, and the first thing we hear is ‘Tornado Warnings’.
The first thing some folk think, it is gonna hit us, I always say, It ain’t gonna hit here. I may be wrong someday, but so far the bullet has struck elsewhere. I am an eternal optimist! (most of the time. LOL)
Near wrecks never bother me, after the fact. I have slow reactions and by the time I am supposed to be scared, the danger has passed. and it is too late to be scared.
Once on I-95 a car passed me and just about 50’ ahead he hit the center retaining wall spun across the lanes in front of us twice and ended up on the right side shoulder. Strange, it was a very busy highway and he hit no one. I am sure he was not hurt, but shook-up. I knew I was not gonna hit him, I had already cut my speed. When I saw the danger was passed, and what direction he was going, I was fine.
CVA 62 USS Independence
Sherry asked me once what I would do if the ship I was on would sink? Immediately I said, “I’d swim home to you!”
So, we just got a call, we are about to go look at the new house, report on the next lines……………………
Like any advertisements you do not see the bad side, or things would never sell. Here is the entrance to the den; there is a fire place in it. BUT there is a step down inside, never a good thing to be below ground level. But we can handle it.
There are two major draw backs.. Sherry says the wall paper will have to go. But after hearing Sonya removing wall paper, I might just paint it, you can do that can’t you?
The other small thing is that door at the end of the room goes into another bedroom, not good to go thru the master br to get to it. solution? Possibly tear the wall out and make one giant master bedroom. Then it becomes a 2BR, not bad.
Another SLIGHT DRAWBACK the door below goes straight by a tub shower on the left into a bathroom (commode & Vanity) Problem is just inside that door to the right is the other bathroom??????? Yep Shown below.
See below, Here you are standing just inside the door above, looking straight ahead you see the one bathroom the tub on your left you cannot see you are standing beside it. if you look to your right you immediately see the master bathroom, Makes sense right? From any place in the house to get to either bathroom you must go thru the master bedroom. Slight problem here'. But, yeah I think we can solve it, with a little ingenuity and work.
Now to the important stuff. Two storage buildings, in fair shape. A large carport for a boat or small camper, just not big enough for our Motor home. Little challenge here.
There is a whole house fan, as you see below in the ceiling. Not to bad, I sorta like that to draw fresh air thru open windows. Also would help if I burned something in the kitchen, hahahaah! Wonder why the border was dropped from the ceiling level? The box on the right is gas logs I think, I didn’t look close figured they were taking them out.
Those will be our Leland Cyprus growing into the road And our wild shrubs going wild up front. Just past the Cyprus trees are about 5 or 6 houses, then a dead end at a house that is appraised at 1.2 million. Quite a mixture of houses.
However in the front yard is two big beautiful dogwood trees, and one huge oak about 36” thru maybe 48”.
It has a nice mail box this is a dead end street also with a couple houses on it. So it is a quiet neighborhood. I could not tell the lay of the land before, but now I know it falls away, the direction you are looking past the mail box.
But all in all we are satisfied, we expected some work.
And we got it.
Thanks for stopping by the log,
RED SKELTON'S RECIPE
FOR THE PERFECT MARRIAGE
My wife told me the car wasn't running well
because there was water in the carburetor.
I asked where the car was. She told me, "In the lake."..
8. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days.
Then the mud fell off..
