Welcome to the farm!!!

It's almost ours. We need to go through the inspection and of course there's the handing over of funds and body parts and we also promised our first born grandchild. But you know what? It's totally worth it, who needs their right arm anyway?   Let's take a look around the place.  Come down the circle drive through the big shade trees..
Here's the one story barn and Rechelle giving me the okay to purchase this little spot of heavenly bliss.
Who wants corn for dinner?  When you climb up in the tree fort you can see Mount Oread.  For those of you that aren't Jayhawks, well, I'm sorry I can't explain it any further than that.  The fella gazing out into the beautiful pasture is my realtor, Randy.  Dandy Randy the realtor.  I like to call him Rrrrrrranday, with a nice long Spanish roll of the rrrrrr.
Hoops?  Anyone?  Listen, you can't live in a place where buildings are named after the man that created basketball and not have a basketball court, no, you can't, it's a regular feature on every home.
Thank you all for your kind words and the prayers that were said.  It's nice to know there's people that care if we have a home.  Tomorrow, I'll show you a little bit inside. 


Now, back to sorting through our stuff and deciding what deserves to live in that sweet farmhouse.  If you live near me now and need "stuff"  I'm going to try to sell everything, even the chickens are up for grabs.

It is really wonderful. I think I see a tree swing to the left of Rechelle in the 2nd picture. I love the tree house, I can picture the boys camping out there. Does the corn come with it? Corn is selling for $.60 an ear here in NJ, up from $.50 an ear last year. Will you be doing any farming?

AND... a bird bath!! Loverly!!

YOU LUCKY DOG!! I think I said that already. Wowzers...

So -- employment wise.... you can just pick up and leave? Or do you have to find a job to go with the new house? OR -- are you independently wealthy and you are laughing your pants off at me... such a question...

NO, NOT THE CHICKENS! Oh why? The poor things. I know it's completely selfish of me but I loved hearing about them. Even when one of them was cut up for parts, I still loved them. So now I'm torn, which to choose- the front porch or the chickens?

OK, the new home with the porch wins. I guess you can always get new chickens, right?
Congratulations and good luck with your new home!
