There were deer curled up sleeping in the yard when I looked at it (they looked up and went back to sleep) and was told elk and turkeys always wander by in the evening. Wood floors, wood burning stove and trees, lots of trees some fruit trees and nice shade. It's very cozy and is my style of home. Still close to family too, and within 10 minutes of being at 10,000 feet and some of my favorite fishing spots. Rent is the same as here with an option to purchase. The dogs will have to adjust to not chasing everything that moves, and they will. Finally I am out of this miserable place!
You’ve served your time, congrats on your get out of jail free card. The cabin sounds idyllic.

This is really great jim9251. I hope it's everything you wanted and more. You certainly have waited long enough. It sounds idyllic to me.

My week has been so-so. Hopefully next week will be better! For both of us!
Luckily, I did cite some sources towards the end so I just need to take the time to go back through this info.

Hope your eyes are faring better. I know this is something I need to consider doing soon so have been reading the cataract thread when I have time.

Jim -- Very exciting! So glad you found a new place. I hope you and the pups have a successful move and enjoy your new home! March is just around the corner!

AzGarden - Yes, Lowes and HD are full of plants now. But I would trade for your cooler weather in the summer, Lol.

Default Egg on my face!

Ok I've got egg on my face My old computer does indeed work and I've got my files *does happy dance* The problem was that my video card died. Since I had to get a new monitor cord to connect my monitor to the new computer (different pin connection), I woke up thinking "maybe it booted and you didn't see it." This in fact was the case! I now have my files backed up to my external hard drive too

So very relieved that I'm back using Windows 7 - I absolutely hated Windows 10! All of my Skype contacts were gone, and Win10 won't allow you to use an older version of Skype!
