Come On In, the Water's Fine

The great American passtime

Well, Husband and I finally did it.  We took the leap and joined our countrymen and women ... in debt.

Mortgage papers signed yesterday.  First $100K draw is next week.

We don't know whether to be proud or ashamed.

Right now, we're just in shock.

So I'm behind on the gossip (as usual lately) - do tell! Are you guys moving or ... adding on or....?? I sort of thought you were adding on to the place in Dexter near Steve and Ruth but...

I miss you guys. I hope as our kids get older and life settles a bit (don't laugh! Stop laughing! hey!) we can travel a bit more and see you guys at a Michigan visit.

No, we're building our dream house, closer to
Clayton than Simmons.

Read back in my (as yet, minimal) archive, and
you'll read all about it.

In fact, you were the one who wanted pictures,
remember? They're from the new location, not
our current one.

And yes, we'll have plenty of room for you anytime
you want to come visit! Please!

Oh! Lovely. Looks like lots of trees.
Can't wait to see it!

Yes, LOTS of trees. Easily 70-80% of the property is wooded. Good old Michigan rain-forest climax woods. Ash (all dead now, thanks to the emerald borer,) maple, cherry (the wood kind, not the fruit kind,) walnut, lots and lots of oak. A few (rather sickly) elm -- and some brand new baby American chestnuts (Clif's latest project.) We just recently transplanted some lilac there, have dreams of fruit trees here and there, and hope eventually to get our hands on some blight resistant elm and American chestnut.

The rest of the land is either swamp (bad side: mosquitoes. good side: sand cranes and heron) or fallow farm land (which is fast infesting with garlic mustard, I think. I have to get to the extension and find out what I can do about it.)

Essentially, we have everything EXCEPT mountain and salt water.

Should be quite the challenge!
