Hundred Dollar House
For several weeks I had seen a little white house with a for sale sign and thought to myself "what a cute house but no one will ever buy it because it was so close to the road." Actually, it was right on top of 16th Ave. So, one day I finally slowed down enough to read the for sale sign and noticed that the house needed to be moved. Just out of curiousity I called the number to see what they wanted for the house. A nice older man answered in a country voice and said "mam, all I want is a hundred dollar bill." Wow! I was so excited that I couldn't wait on the man to open up the house. So, I found a window that I could open and crawled into the house. I immediatly saw the potential. The old character and hidden little secrets made this a must have for me. I just needed a place to move it to.
Thankfully, Joe Johnson knew exactly where I could put it. He found me a lot about 250 yards behind the house. At the end of this road was a secret little 1 acre lot that was meant for this house. Just a few yards away from 16th avenue but seemed miles out in the country.
So, the house is officially mine! We are supposed to be moving it in the next couple of weeks. I am excited and nervous all at the same time.
