It got me thinking about a saying that I've had for years, a saying that my daughter once told me was the most valuable thing I taught her when she was growing up: "No matter what, the sun WILL come up in the morning." And, if it doesn't, of course, we have much worse problems than whatever happens to be troubling us in the immediate moment. With all of the angst and trauma and (4 comments)
Your Own Little Piece of the Texas Hill Country - 07/22/08 05:26 PM
Your Secluded Hill Country Retreat 510 Greystone Drive, Dripping Springs, TX 78620 View Map This secluded log home retreat tucked away in the Hill Country just outside of Dripping Springs is a perfect place to get away from the rush-rush-rush of the city and relax, listening to the wind and the wildlife and watching the panoramic view from the rocking chair on your wraparound porch. A BBQ with friends under the trees is not out of the question, either! Hardwood and tile floors down, carpet upstairs, a huge walk-in shower in the master bath and elegant claw foot tub upstairs, wood (2 comments)

When we first moved out here, and (6 comments)

As those who have been around a while may know, my new name, after frying two hard drives (and making an external backup hard drive not work) within five months, is "Dances on Hard Drives". So you can imagine my chagrin when I went to turn on my computer yesterday morning, the computer that had been functioning perfectly well the night before when I shut it down, and nothing happened. It wouldn't even TRY to turn on! Thoughts of terminal embarrassment (never mind lost data) went flitting through my mind. I had floor duty, on top of that, and an appointment (1 comments)
A blog about things Texas, about things horsie, about real estate issues, about life in the country, about food, about whatever strikes my fancy pertaining to life, the universe, and everything and, especially, real estate.
