    We don't know a lot about much of the rest of the state but we would be pleased to offer you a base to look for something that might make you happy if you might think that would help. We looked for over two years from the Carolinas, Georgia and Alabama and wound up looking at Tennessee.

    Got to laugh, it has rained all week, it's a wet soggy humid , no air week and we are under a flood watch and flood warning...
    We are three miles from the river.....it may flood, but not this far away, never has :fl and nobody is concerned......other than you can't walk out side without fire ant all over your feet and ankles..:barnie.....
    Have a wonderful dry if you need it...wet if you want it...weekend :thumbsup.

    I lived in Pensacola for close to 20 years a couple of years at a time. I loved it but there was no way I would retire there. :) We have some terribly humid temps but it does not last long.

    Wow, thank you Mike, that is very kind of you......will keep that in mind when / if we get to the "we got a solid offer point " , then I will probably make a road trip alone and find a new home. I really still want to be mortgage free so buying with cash does have some advantages in the negotiations :)

    Have you looked for homes on Zillow? It's pretty helpful :)
    I don't recommend using craigslist when looking for houses...The house I planned on moving into when I got here turned out to be a scam and I had to stay at a motel for almost 2 weeks before I found a place :th

    I have been using zillow to get a general feel, zillow isn't very reliable either as they don't always delete sold homes.....but at least you can get a good look at the inside of the home and they tend to have more pictures of the land and out buildings ..thanks :).

    No, even told DH I was ready to bring them onto the back porch and do them, but with three dogs ....that won't work, I would have a hard time telling Mel he couldn't have a head for a snack.....I really need to get them gone, I have to put the chicks out in the hutchs as they are about to hop out of the garden bath tub even though their wings have been clipped......lord it smells....even with daily cleaning...20 jersey giant chicks a pooping, inside, well it just smells like chicken $/^! :jumpy:jumpy:jumpy
