Out and About: Lake Guntersville

I still don’t have a camper.  A few plans have changed though getting one remains on my radar.  In the meantime, this week some friends who do have a camper graciously invited me to spend some time with them at Lake Guntersville State Park.  Of course, I jumped at the offer.  A chance to experience camper living […]

Home Appraisals and Hockey

This week began with phone calls from the person who did my first house appraisal telling me she needed to come by again because there were pictures she missed.  Ummm. I contacted my bank instead of the appraiser to find out what monkey business was happening now – one month, two appraisals, and 563 signatures […]
