It wasn’t the jerk. That’s about all I know. Realtor said they are going to build a big house.

I picked up 3 registered ewes today. They are in a pen away from the other sheep. They are wary but not bounce off the wire crazy. They have hay, water and I fed them. They were interested in the feed, when I backed off they came up and ate. They are 1 year old, couple of weeks of separation and they belong to Ringo. 2 are white, 1 is brown.

Update on the survey or lack thereof:

The already scheduled survey at the 20th to 30th of June,completed, cost will be $3250.

The new surveyor bid to be completed June 14th, has come in at $10,000. And this was a group discount?

Sigh…….. guess I’ll be waiting until end of June.

Difference in cost, local surveyor has done surveys in that immediate area before and knows it well.

New surveyor from Tyler is not familiar with the area and wants to go back and re-survey the entire piece of property, over 100 acres, then carve out my 25 acres. Uhh….. Nope.

Sorry you have to wait. We are doing a hurry up and wait with road work. Also had septic checked (house inspector doesn’t do septic) yikes that tank needs pumping. (New place). Imma hoping we are done with surprises. Bet not though. I want to pass my own place along in the best possible shape. And I’m going to find a certain snake. I have a pretty good idea where to look.

Sorry to add to the freak out list... but an overfull septic can cause sediment to travel to the leach field and reduce it's life.

Depending on the kind of leach field ya have.

Inspectors have a longer list of what they DON'T inspect, then what they DO inspect. And I paid $475 for a touchy-feely happy report of pretty much nothingness. If you really want to find out what is right/wrong with a house, get an expert, in all the various trades associated with the housing industry--and nobody does that. It's just a paper for the lender to turn loose of the money and approve the loan. And the buyer may know something, but shuts up in order to get the loan so they can fix it later. Or if it is a glaring "wrong" then it may get written into the contract, so many days to fix it and the loan is approved. It's all a game.

Leach field may cut us a break. It’s in red sandy soil doesn’t appear in trouble now. We’ve fixed leach field issues before. Still don’t want them though.

It's all robbery. I had to pay $660 for an appraisal on RAW land. 22 pages to prove it's not a toxic waste dump or next to one. :rolleyes:
