Our place was a HUD repo. Doublewide and 8 acres, we won the bid for $65,655. At the time, almost 7 years ago, land here was $8,000 per acre on the HIGH side. Now land is $20,000 to $30,000 per acre. Our place now could easily bring $250,000 to $300,000 Total insanity. Factor in galloping inflation and the sky is the limit.

We went yesterday with our neighbor Robert to pick up a sawmill that he bought. It is now on our flatbed on the back of his 2 acres, which backs up to our place. We already have a 12' gate in the fence, we'll add a 16' gate for easier access. Plans are rolling around in my head....... poor BJ. I want to build a post and beam with cordwood masonry infill, house. Not necessarily here...... But he and I discussed building a small one bedroom cottage up front as a practice run, then renting it out on Air B&B. He liked that idea. BWA-HA-HA-HA!

Might not be pretty but it will cut the grass.
It actually looks very professional He molded the plate around the curve of the body and made it sturdy enough that the seat no longer needs the cheesy braces that it used to have. Just for grins I'll take a picture or two before I prime and paint it.

Ringo is in the side pasture that goes from the backyard to the back of the sheep barn. This means that he has opportunity to follow me and BAA at me as I come and go. I walk outside, he is there at the fence, staring holes in me, BAA BAA BAA. I go to feed the horses, Ringo is at the fence, BAA BAA BAA. :lol:

When I finish up chores, I get the horse curry comb and a brush and go see Ringo. He RUNS to me when I call. If I am brushing in the wrong place, he will move up or down to encourage me to hit the right spot. :yesss:

Yesterday I was brushing him and up comes one of his sons, Star. Whatever Daddy was getting, Star wanted some too. So I brushed them both. Then up came Snip, whatever Daddy and bratty brother were getting, Snip wanted some too. So I brushed all 3. The 2 boys stood transfixed. This of course cut down on the lavish attention Ringo was getting, so he swung his head at the 2 upstarts that were mooching in on his attention, pushing them away. Ringo does not like to share. :love

We didn't think it would sell that fast since they were asking $12,000 and acre and we paid $2,000 per acre six years ago.
Sold! Land here is $90,000 per acre and is selling in less than a few days when it does come on the market.

Like the Crescent Beef Stoganoff Bake! I tried it with Pepper Jack cheese and it had a nice taste to it. Thanks for sharing.
