Musings by Patricia Feager, 5/21/2017
Something you don't see everyday is buffalo. I shot this photo on Friday evening, May 19, 2017. I just left my clients who were driving their own car from a property we saw in Justin, Texas. One of her final words to me before we went our separate ways was this feels like home...
FEELINGS ARE NEVER ENOUGH
As I was driving down the country road, alone with my thoughts, I saw a buffalo and a car pulled over along the side of the road. My immediate concern was were they okay? Torn between wanting to stop the car to take a photograph or ask if everyone in the car was okay, I chose to drive along side the car and stopped to ask if they were alright. I didn't recognize the car; however I knew immediately it was the family I left a few minutes ago. Thankfully, they were okay and she was doing the same thing I wanted to do - take photos of the buffalo! After realizing they were alright, I got my shot and waved goodbye.
OH GIVE ME A HOME WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM
While looking in the rear view mirror, the car was still there. It didn't move. They were savoring the moment. I knew they weren't interested in buying the house we saw. It's not that it wasn't the right one, it just wasn't the right location because the Seller's Disclosure noted the property is in a floodway. Their daughter, former military who was also experienced, working at the US Army Corps of Engineers' Philadelphia District was able to explain the difference and why it wouldn't be a smart investment. Knowing your risks is something everyone must take responsibility for before making any major purchase.
