Fair Winds, And Following Seas

In a few short hours from now Brother M. and his lovely Missus, Mrs. M-ITT and Imperial Sniper will own this small, but significant chunk of Tejas. It brings Red and I to joy and comfort, knowing that friends and loved ones can find and enjoy the “True American Dream”, that of owning land, however small or large and the responsibilities that accompany it. The problems both big and small that are a certainty as well as the PRIDE of knowing that this is yours, come hell or high waters are a trivial price to pay. This friends, is the culmination of merely a small part of the American Dream. No dictator, tyrant or potentate can change regardless of intentions (we fought for this one and will do it again), it’s an American thing !
This piece of the Creator’s favorite state, Texas, will be theirs perpetually. As Brother M. has said, I’ll leave this land for the nursing home or (G-d Forbid) or the funeral home. I don’t think I could put it any better. Red and I could ask for no better friends, that we’re allowed to share a piece of this as lowly squatters. We had our own, but it wasn’t in His plan to keep it. To our friends here, welcome to our Brother and Sister once again with an extended welcome to the “American Dream” and may G-d Bless them for sharing it, with those in need of a new start. A man without friends and brothers, is without hope. Let’s lift a cup of our choosing to those that have well and truly earned it !!!!!
-JB and Country Red

    Whatever troubles you have (or had), remember that God is good, and faithful … he will provide. It is comforting to know that there are brothers and sisters amongst this community who will, and do, help.

    I envy you. We’re currently doing battle with that communist incarnation of evil, the Homeowner’s Association, otherwise known as the last bastion of every dried-up, nosy, soap-opera-watching widowed sixty-five year old busybody in America.

    Good Job and God Bless You for avoiding that disaster.

    Congratulations!

    The only thing that could be better is to live in Missouri, but don’t let anyone know – we try to keep it a secret, we don’t want it to fill up too much. :em95:

    Missouri!?!?!?

    Oh, I get it. A joke.

    (says the former Iowan)

    I’ve been thrown out of Missouri more times than normal people have been there, if I owned Misery and hell…well you know the rest.

    Glad someone likes living there.

    Yeah we’re home owners now, and thanks to M’s 20 years in Gubmint Service, we’ve pissed off the Liberals by saving and participating in that wonderful thing called free market, and this little chunk of Texas Prairie is now OURS. As long as we keep paying the property taxes, they ain’t gettin it!! :em93:

    Awwww geeeez JB. Go and make me cry why doncha?? *sniff*

    Red and I could ask for no better friends, that we’re allowed to share a piece of this as lowly squatters.

    Oh squatters my ass. You’re FAMILY. *goes off mumbling to find the Skull Thwacker™*

    And you will again Bro, I personally put an order in for ya, and I know your name is on the waiting list. Just give him time to get things ready. :em69:

    To all the Rotties, our home is open to all Yall, and as long as you give us a heads up, the coffee will be on and the potroast a cookin. If not, you’ll just have to sit and be patient while we fix em. :em03:

    You went about this all wrong, Mrs.M. You should have bought more home than you could afford, failed to pay your mortgage, and then gotten part of the bailout. In Michigan (I believe) a us rep is encouraging people whose homes are being foreclosed on NOT to leave…to basically MAKE the gummint evict them.

    I heard that this new porkulus is providing tax breaks for new home owners.

    Sheesh…what ARE you, anyway, a CAPITALIST????

    Yeah our Realtor forwarded a tax form to us that we could fill out and get $7,500 for a tax credit, but that it had to be repaid over a 15 year period. The original Realtor that sent it made a notation that the verbiage has been changed on the Stimulus bill to read that it does not need to be repaid.

    We decided to pass. Something about taking blood money just doesn’t sit well with me. :em38:

    To M and Mrs M…. :em69: :em04: Perhaps that is part and parcel of what Rotties are about….a hand extended rather than a hand out. I try to help people in whatever small ways I can too. Right now, very small. Makes me gratful and proud to be a Rottie.

    Among news of filthy communist decay, a bright spot of light, and news of a capitalist nature, of achievement and hard work paying off. Thank you, for that. I am so happy for you. Who knows, I may be next….

    You, too? If only I had known then what I know now…….

    The Homeowner’s Association is an abbreviated version of where the entire nation is headed. :em72:
