Great to see you .40...you've been missed!

Your going to love those plantation shutters in the LR and the kitchen looks great.
What a great bonus to have such a nice extra house on such a huge lot! I hope your daughter appreciates having such a nice place to live back there, and far more valuable than six white horses and a carriage.

Well, I gotta say I am much better at fishin' than dancin'-- even square dancin'.

They should know that outwardly boys hate girls at that age. Now secretly, that's another story!

congratulations, .40, on your new home. the house and the grounds are magnificent. the interior is so light, airy and spacious. the elegant entertainment areas have an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming. it is truly a home to retire to, and never to tire of..... .40, as our primary architect for the dc coffee klatch building, i must say that the living, dining and porch areas of your new house put me in mind of the coffeehouse which you were the contractor instrumental in designing for our coffee and tea loving members--a beautiful and welcoming place of leisure, where luxury, comfort and good friends come together over a friendly cuppa.
