The new property
where we are moving to... we hope.  It's 20 acres 10 being cleared, 10 still in native woods. Plenty of deer, turkeys cranes, and a private lake across the road.  We are looking forward to building a log home in a few years, then having Mom and Dad move into the trailer.  MJ wants to raise Alpacs, and the Decker Rat Terriers, and I will do a huge garden, some chickens, a couple of hogs a year for our own use.  MJ wants me to build another pond, this time I think I will rent a backhoe!!!  We are thinking of nameing the place "Clark's Oasis."  What do you think?

View from the front porch, prime deer watching area.  Can you say "porch hunting?"

Both sides are mowed now and look great.  We only mowed for the most part where Mike had mowed before.  This will keep the wild flowers coming back and give the turkeys cover.

I'm trying to talk MJ into planting some pine trees for a windbreak along the north and west sides of the house, I'm afraid it will be cold winters till then.

All mowed now, and I put up a fence for the "kids".

As you can see we have a ton of wild flowers all over the property.  They are loaded with butterflies all day long, along with humming birds.

This is all mowed now, and while mowing I found a wild rose plant growing, so I left it alone.

This area is all mowed and looks 100% better.  BTW after mowing around the house area 3 times to get it all, I told MJ,"We need a bigger mower!!!"  We went out the next day and bought a riding mower with a 38" cut!!

View from the front porch.  I stained most of the deck last weekend.  Hope to get it finished up after I get back from Nebraska.

Now don't MJ just have that "country girl" look to her already?  I must be rubbing off on her.

Here is Mike And Linda Rose (we bought the place from them) trying to get out of the picture, they didn't make it.  We moved the small couch to the far wall and put two book cases on either side of it.  The big couch is across from the sliding glass doors looking out the front porch.  P.S. Thanks Mike and Linda, we love the place!  Stop by for coffee any time!!
