PREPARE YOURSELVES for some pretty exciting news...we put an offer in on a property in foreclosure near Freestone!!! It was just a once-in-a-lifetime deal that we can't pass up. Most of the value is in the land. The house isn't livable (yet), but there's a barn AND almost 22 acres-which means lots of more room for Paco and Luigi and future ranch animals!!!!! We find out tomorrow if our offer is accepted. There's no water or electricity to the property (yet)...which is probably why so many people are turned off by it- but nothing scares the Rousseaus- and there's no fixer that Randy can't handle!!! We'll put Ellen Ln. on the market early next week if all goes well!!! We may be crazy, but we've done crazy things in the past!!!

The house....it has been yellow-taped off, so we couldn't go inside- the upstairs is falling down to the downstairs...pretty major fixer...no plumbing, either! We'll have to live in the barn or a mobile home until it is renovated!
The barn...plenty of room for Paco, Luigi, the dogs, hens, Boulder and US!

Boulder is bored with the news.
Paco and Luigi are thrilled!

This is why I only buy seafood catfood now.
