We went out the other day and made a few pictures of the lake where we live. It's a private community. It is also gated, which I don't like, but I don't have any choice about that. All in all I do really like it here. We have been here for about 30 plus years, and it's home now for sure. Years ago we bought a lot here and decided to build us something to live in, which we did and it has evolved over time into a pretty comfortable place. We bought some more lots around us, so we wouldn't get crowed by neighbors to close, and that is nice. It gives you room to breathe and lots of green empty spaces that make home more peaceful and quiet. I think a lot of people ( by today's standards ) would find the house lacking in a few conveniences, like central heat and air conditioning, but we have plenty of heat and air conditioners to keep us comfortable enough. Here is a picture of me and my husband bobby, and our dogs, Tootie and Fruity. I have always shied away from getting my picture taken, but why worry about it now. I told my husband to just take a picture of me at my worst. My shirt is on inside out. HaHa In the weeks to come, I thought I would share some pictures of our house and us. I have enjoyed seeing other folks pictures of their homes and them doing various things, so I thought I might do that too. The lake is beautiful and it is nice to be near so much water to enjoy.
