It is literally in what used to be downtown Lingle, WY. It's oddball and a perfect fit for Shrek and I. The kitchen alone is three times the size of the one I have now.

I love it!

This is exciting!

It may be a good omen that Lingle was carved out of the old PF ranch!

I would be tempted to have a big mural painted, of old Lingle, on that upper wall in the front. Maybe an art project for the local histerical society or college kids!

Good luck!

Thanks Aunt Bea!

LOL! And here I was thinking a picture from Narnia with that lamp post out front. The left side of the building is blank with a few windows up high, more mural space or I was thinking shades of purple from pale lilac at the top to dark purple at the bottom with tulips and daffs painted on. I could carry that around the back, too.

This isn't the Grandpa house. Dad took a look at that house and it is so delapidated it would take a year to renovate tear it down and rebuild.

Me, I'm making lists of things to prep and ideas for dishes to make after my monthly shopping spree yesterday.

I''m hearing my pillow calling me now. *yawn*
But, But! I like going to the laundromat much more than having a washer and dryer. I would like a little clothesline space though. Thanks, Z!

Addie, I'm getting tired just reading what you have been doing and planning.

That's really annoying about the rent cheques. What is management thinking?

We were looking at the house that belonged to my GrandFather, he sold the farm about 50 years ago. But that is further south (by about 12 miles) than the store house I am looking at now.

I was talking about this from the Wyoming Tribune, March 24, 1910.

I'm getting that house, Dad says it's perfect!!!! I should be able to move right in as soon as we get there. AND the washer and dryer come with the property. Mom said she walked in and decided it was perfect for her Ogres.
