July 4, 29 years ago. We bought our own piece of this spinning sphere to call home. Boy have things changed.
Upon closer look, you can see how much work we had ahead of us, but at the time, it seemed like an adventure. It truly was a long summer vacation at first, the weather being nice and warm (HOT) on some days. Our only air conditioning was the creek out in back. We would go down for a dip, and then come back in for lunch and a nap in front of the fan.
