    45k! Wow, houses in West are about as cheap as the houses here. Then again, it’s only 1 bedroom which has to be tiny. Maybe NOT such a good deal after all.

    There is a lot going on in West by gawd, Texas. Thanks for the information. And our housing market is out of whack here so we can only dream about those kind of home prices.

    it would be a lot easier keeping the yard clean with the chihuahuas than with the big brutes.

    Yea! Jackiesue is back from the stone age where they don’t have lectric juice.

    Sometimes I think editors try to see what they can get away with in the paper.
