Sand, Grassburrs, and Gophers
Still have company but I wanted to write about the house we all went to look at that is for sale. The house is beautiful but none of us would want to live in a house stuck in a field of sand and grassburrs sticking onto your shoes and being tracked on to the pretty carpet. Little gopher hills as far as you can see. When we found the place there was a pretty large entrance and the house sat far back from the road. The owners warned us to not drive slow in the sand because we would get stuck for sure so we made it without getting stuck in the deep sand. We walked into a very pretty living room with no furniture. It opened onto the kitchen which had lovely cabinets and she had decorated it with white tile with a bluebonnet tile in a nice country design. She had cookie jar and canisters to match. We went up the stairs to three bedroom and baths. The master had a beautiful king size bed but no matress or springs. There were several entertainment centers with no TV's. There was a porch all around the house on the top level and on the bottom. Can't describe how pretty the house and the place is but the sand and grassburrs are terribily irratating. We walked to a tank and it was sooo cold that day so we passed on walking to the back of the property where there was a stand of oak trees. The yard was large with tall trees and there was large gates with an overhead eagle on each. The place is between 50 and 100 acres and just beautiful but I would never want to live in sand and grassburrs. Maybe someone could pour cement walkways to alleviate some of the misery. I really can't describe the place here but it was on a country road and I want to go look the area over another time.
