Excuse Me Waiter, There's A Frog In My Soup

Of course in our case that would be a frog in our POOL - jinkies! Apparently they not only didn't use the pool for the past couple of years but they didn't cover it properly so David got in there in his waders and was mucking out leaves and sticks while the frogs frog-paddled around him. The pool itself is fine, but needs a massive cleaning out .Obviously. David said he came home one day to cows peeking through our bushes but some sturdy woman came and called them home. He said the cows call at dusk as they meander thier way home and you can hear the wind whistling in the old mines down the road. I think we're in for an interesting life! The house iself is a sturdy thing too and needs cosmetics as far as we can tell so far. David and Copper are happy to be here in Pa with heat and all, they spent the week roughing it in WV -  no heat, hot water or phone but aside from that both seemed to have had a great time. David met some more of the neighbors who seemed pleased to have him there and he bought a riding John Deere mower for $600. Right now we're trying to keep a handle on the spending since almost all of our equity is still tied up in this house here. The RE has two appointments for today so cross your fingers for me - or you'll be swimmin' wit da froggies!!
