Farewell Mountain House.


The closing on the Mountain House went through this morning. We'll certainly miss some things about living there. We won't miss some other things so much. Like when I had to put chains on the car so I could drive Shea a mile down the mountain to the bus stop. Not missing that so much. Or realizing I was out of milk and that it would take me an hour to make the round trip trek for a gallon of it. Or when the new owners mentioned they had been up at the house clearing brush and found one sixteen foot black snake and two copperhead snakes, one a baby and one three feet long. I'm not going to miss the snakes so much.

Congrats! Nice to have it off your plate too, I can imagine, even if it was a pretty cool little place. Yea! And I'm with you - I can deal with just about anything ... except snakes.

It's nice to hear about ahouse selling for a change. When I walk the dog each day I watch for new "For Sale" signs and see a new one at least once a week around here...
