On the Market

We have listed with genuinely nice guy. Last night, four hours after we signed the contract the doorbell rang, and the brother of the people who live across the street offered to buy our house privately without ever setting foot in it. He didn't know we'd just listed. Anyway, they can talk to genuinely nice guy if they want to proceed.

The above picture was taken on our property in Lone Butte at 6 a.m. in early September. I'd come out of the trailer in my nightgown and wellies to let the dogs out of the back of the truck. I raced back in to grab the camera, leaving the dogs very puzzled about their continued confinement. It was one of those rare moments of awe and wonder when you marvel at how you could have been chosen to witness something so incredibly beautiful. The photo doesn't do the moment justice at all. As soon as I'd taken pics, I realized that everywhere was very frosty, let the dogs out to romp, and dove back inside to get dressed and warmed up.

Michael called from 100 Mile. He has been speaking with someone about a potential job. He also went out to the property, and said that Dave has nearly finished fencing - Dave called here this morning, looking for Mike, and said he thought they'd be done by Tuesday night. Cliff has done some more work and the septic line is in and ready. Nice to know that things are progressing! Posted by Picasa
