I about did a spit-take to those pictures, MC (especially the one on the left.) Fortunately I had already swallowed my last mouthful of coke before I saw them.
Yes it's about 17 ft. wall to wall, but there's a garage buffer between each house, i.e. neighbors can't hear you yelling at each other unless your in garage.... 😬 😉Thanks for the video!
It was neat, but I couldn't get over how close you live to your neighbors. When I was younger I was more tolerant of living in apartments. Lived in several different apartments. Then I tried duplexes. They were a little bit better. Just before I bought my house I spent three years in a FEMA trailer on 3 acres. Sure I only had 368 square feet of living space, but I didn't have neighbors. Little did I know I would get the space and place I wanted with stupid neighbors.
I guess I just had a random rant!
"Splain" this to me.Yes it's about 17 ft. wall to wall, but there's a garage buffer between each house, i.e. neighbors can't hear you yelling at each other unless your in garage.... 😬 😉
Many of the "garden homes" around here have only about 8 ft. between structures! Across hwy there is a community where most of the houses have 1/2 or 1 acre lots. Little too $$$ now for us, but not when we first moved here 28 years ago. Since I was still working aboard ships and gone more than half the time, DW didn't want large property then.
Believe me, now we want to downsize and move to single level house with some property. House prices are soaring in this town now with big influx from high tax states...
I don't know—1620 doesn't look too horrible. On the other hand (from Wiki):Apparently 1620 was no better than 2020.
Yes, single level for old farts, good on knees."Splain" this to me.
What are you giving up? Of course I think differently than you. You have a second floor but the price of land is not going down. And you are also getting to the age that you probably shouldn't abuse your knees, by climbing stairs.
Go for the flat property!
Umm, is there still going to be a pool?
Don't know who you're talking about? Austin is 45 min drive, unless you go during rush hours.On a side note, I got hooked on Sgt. Sam, Austin radio host. Todd and Don were my gateway drug to Sgt. Sam. He told it like it was!
Are you familiar with that? You are closer to Austin than I am!

This one should interest you, Kenny
A severe frost in England, freezes the River Thames; 13 continuous days of snow blanket Scotland.
The Thames does not freeze (very often.) From 1499-1835, it is recorded as freezing completely over at London 24 times, but in the Great Frost of 1683-84 it froze for 2 months and the ice reached a depth of 11 inches.
The first merry-go-round is seen at a fair.
I suppose some might say we've been on a Merry-Go-Round all of 2020. Without the "Merry" of course.
The Mayflower [which incidentally was an armed merchant ship] arrives inside the tip of Cape Cod with the Pilgrims and Planters.
It took them three tries to get here—they kept having to go back to England for repairs. Anyway, this was perhaps not such good news for the Native Americans
He is the English dude,right?Not out all night this time. I got a reasonable night's sleep and I'm wide awake and ready to jump into research.
At least I spared you a list of birthdays and deaths for 1620. There weren't many folks that were interesting on it anyway.
On May 16th, William Adams, English navigator and samurai, died.
That one must have a good back story. Actually, you kinda know it already if you've read Shogun by James Clavell, or saw the mini-series on TV in 1980.
Winston Churchill was born on April 18th. You non-history people have surely heard of him, right? Actually, this Winston was an ancestor of the one you know about (I'm assuming). THE Winston Churchill was named after him, and was born on November 30, 1874.
Here comes ABTLH to ask more questions...so a recruiter called you? Out of the blue or did you sign up with the recruiter's company to have them inspect you for possible jobs? Did the recruiter describe what the job entailed? Or was it posted someplace. Does the job have a future--where you can rise in all your glory to bigger and better things? What have you done in the past that might equip you to be successful at this job? What are your goals? Is the job within your required parameter like distance from your home. Are the salary ranges within your acceptable values? Do the have an acceptable break room that meets your needs?I am probably jinxing myself but, I have a video interview with the trucking company on Tuesday. The recruiter called me yesterday afternoon. Aunt B will get on to me for this. She will claim I am whining. Why can't a decent job find me?
