Buying a House

Reading DDs blog about how they bought his property, reminded me of mine.

We had looked for a couple of years, and nothing fit the bill. She called me one day, on a Saturday morning, and said she had found the perfect place. Just put on the market. She took me to look, and yesssssssss,,, was the one! The fence on one side was the city limits, pasture there. 2 lots, end of the street, on the corner. BIG house, like they built them in the 50s or 60s, big rooms, not just closet size bedrooms. 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1 unfinished. Den, with a fireplace. Outside big garage, not attached to the house. Later built a breezeway in that space. Did the 2nd bathroom within 2 years, it was plumbed in,, and wired in too.

I called the banker, (played bridge with him) and asked if he would finance another house, he said yes, come in Monday and sign the papers. I put earnest money up, got the house that day, moved in a few weeks later. My youngest brother has it now. Like home to him,, lol. The perfect place to raise kids. Across the pasture, is a huge creek. A block from the river.

I'm still staying still, taking pain meds, which don't do much. It's really hard to not be able to go to Austin for my son's surgery tomorrow. His finance told me she would keep me posted all the time. It's early in the morning, but not sure what time. Will be about 4 1/2 hours.

I just don't have anything to write about, so yall tc, and
