I love my new place.
After almost five years of living next to the crazy neighbors from hell (the stories I could tell...no need to watch reality shows on TV when all I had to do was look out the window), I finally found the perfect place and just finished moving. 30 peaceful acres, and I'm the only driveway on a two mile stretch of dirt road, plus I'm right in the heart of the state Prairie Chicken grounds, so have wild birds to train on. The township is glad to have me (permits were no problem), the closest neighbors are 1) very nice and 2) have a bunch of dogs of their own, plus 3) are a third of a mile away.
Next project: concrete and fencing. Then the pond. ::::sigh:::: I'll be broke, but happy.
