We did what they call the "final walk through" of the new house in the country this evening, and it is so nice. There was a kind note on the table from the sellers, the sort of note that I would like to leave someone, someday. It listed what sorts of fish were in the stream that runs through it, even! And the names of all the neighbors, little tidbits about them, and how to recognize them (which cars they drive). There were the names of some people who like to hunt on the land, saying they would probably contact us soon. They told us the kinds of native grasses they planted in the pasture. Strangely, they didn't mention who planted the huge crop of corn or when they would come and clear it, but maybe they will tell us, tomorrow.

Gosh, it's nice. Fish in the stream, even. The whole thing is sort of like when you find a twenty dollar bill in your pocket that you completely forgot was there, only on a much larger scale.

It all seems incredibly under priced. Hm...

There was this door in the basement... *TLBP remembered it being in one spot, but then it was in a different spot this time... maybe this is like the House of Leaves... maybe that's why it's so cheap?

Nah. It's just nice.

  1. Congratulations! Lucky you! Lucky us--we get to hear all about it!

  2. I hope you'll be harvesting some photoatoes soon. Sound exciting.

    All properties have secret things wrong with them. I'd be worried if nothing emerges, because that just means you haven't found it yet.

  3. I am so happy for you and Brian and Zelma. I can't wait to see it in person!
