    Excellent Jared! I count 14 pieces of silver for you this year so far. Well, that's 14 ahead of me - just racking up coppers right now. You are a true silver hound.

    Thanks Drew. Nah, not too sore. A little wind burned on my face - in the 40s and blustery all day.

    Hi Drew,

    Thanks Drew. I haven't asked. I mentioned above that it's in poor condition - small yard with a lot of junk in it (old cars, an old washing machine, etc.). The house looks like it hasn't...
