Then we are probably heading to Florida to spend a month and buy the lot, etc....

We will be back in Arkansas after that, but not sure how long.... or when....

August 18-20 is Estate Sale....

Would be GREAT if late fall we had sold our house and were ready to move into our modular house.
Mary Ann and I will be in Florida mid October to late November so let us know if you're in the area and ready for visitors. We will return to Florida soon after Christmas and be in Ruskin til mid April.

If you're overstocked in pictures and glasswork for the modular house in Florida, put us down for $250 worth of one of your original paintings and one of Larry's creations. If that's not enough, let us know what it takes to gain another of your works of art.

And we thought we were changing our lifestyles . . . . . . may God continue to give you wisdom and strength in your decision-making efforts.

Congratulations. There is nothing more pleasant and relaxing than sleeping under the stars. Get a folding cot for those nights when the stars are bright and the weather is right.


Some day you could install a pass-through door for pickups that may be of some help during inclement weather.

You are a star, Bev! How about some Rainbows?
You sure got all the pieces together quick.
Ride that Rainbow! ❤️

Fantastic news, Beverly! Castles take time to build & yours is coming right along.

I'll give you some origami stars to hang in the windows, if you like. They can carry your theme to the inside.

Congratulations!
Sue

Beverly, I like Wayne's idea of a passthrough door from the cab! (Don't tell him I said so; he'll get the big head!)

It takes more money & some skills I wouldn't have, but down the road apiece, you might find it useful. Maybe some barter situation?

Sue

Back in BC (before children) we traveled in a camper similar to Beverly s. Added a fan and electric skillet and we were up town! Problem of staying on the beach in our set up was continuous sand everywhere.

That would fall into the category of a list titled "The Best Of Times" yes?

Thanks! To all.

I neglected to add images of my Castle, as I am uncertain how to create a URL for the photos...


Anyhoo, thanks for the good wishes! Looking forward to meeting you all someday soon.

Yup. Ya know, I just thought of something I hold in the category I mentioned above........which just might be very Mutant long before I discovered this group.
When I was in my early teens, me and my buddy on the neighboring farm decided to camp out in the cow pasture on my farm. We chose a spot on the South end far from the farmstead. We used one of my dad's grain tarps as a tent, hauled firewood down along with my dad's trusty Coleman camp stove.
We laid on our backs on throw rugs with the fire goin', staring at a sky filled with stars, (there's a lot going on up there if you look).....
And a neat thing happened too......it was dead quiet except for the crackling of the campfire, and being curious as they are, the cows and their calves decided to join us! They came up, looked at us for a while in wonderment, then bedded down all around our campsite.
I felt like a cowboy from the old days on a cattle drive as the cows added to the fire crackling noise with sounds of munching on grass. They were still there in the morning too, all around the tent, as they accepted us into their group in their pasture.
We cooked on the Coleman stove, and my dad later told me how darn good that smelled all the way up at the farm house.

I'll always hold that time and the few more times we did a camp out there in my "best of times" file in my mind. A true feeling of peacefulness, a closeness to God, and zero tech involved. As time goes on, I'm finding I visit that file often.

Electra, very nice story. I could feel it. Nice thing about living in a small town and farmland.
