Wow. Thanks you guys. I really appreciate your kind thoughtfulness.

Bud, this park, according to the owner, is deer proofed. Who knows how. But if you want deer we can collect them off the highways, littered with fresh carcasses. Maybe less sporting than feeding them, as many hunters here apparently do, but not by much.

You can come for the trout fishing though. It'll be hot soon. I hear they attract large eels and lost bayou folks.

Merry Christmas to all of you.

Dale

Congratulations, Dale! I hope this brings you happiness and the "sense of place" you both seek.

 

All the best,

John

Thanks to each of you. I've been undoing pikes today, organizing a few bits and putting them away. Of course Shan will change all if it, which begs the question Why bother?

It's surprising how much space there is. I guess moving from under 250 to over 1400 square feet will do that. And no furniture helps for sure. Haha.

Lloyd, Russ and Keith,
I will say thanks and tell you that Shan is very happy. We are both humbled by this and ready for the season before us.
Thanks to each of you. Our stuff arrived on Sunday, was all unloaded before noon Monday, and much is unloaded and organized with more to unpack. It's nice to have a few chairs to sit on, and a table to eat at!
Dale and the former blond known as Shan.
