Good news,Sad News.. but positive~
We finally sold our other homestead..wow, it was a journey.
2 years on the market, we had many people wanting the place, but the banks were just not lending.
Of all people to buy the homestead was my mother's heart doctor.
Guess its true Doctors have all the money~ smile~
We closed Monday~ The house is no longer ours..
Sad that another family homestead is gone..we sold ours in 2006 to Wal Greens..
The 1st. thing they did was bulldoze the 152 year old house.
I cried for days.. we had no choice but sell.
Lots of memories and history~
It does have its good points, the verandahs/porches are nice you can almost see forever on the top porch, I spend a lot of time here
I write in my jourmal while enjoying the wildlife, and they are unaware I am even there.
The old barn is has its own creatures, the barn owls, and our barn cats that love to nap there,
The meadows are abundent in wildflowers in the Spring
We have the same street name just a different number,the same phone,just a different place ~
Once a small town was now, becoming a Huge Place to build a business.
They were building all around us, across the street ACE hardware shoved, Barn Owl Farm Supples to the curb'
The drugstore in town was replaced with CVS,
The family Dr. we all had went to for years, was shutting down.
The Ooltewah Medical Clinic was the new place to go.
To this day I cannot walk in that Wal Greens.
It would be like walking on hallowed grounds.
Changes happen,Life goes on with or without our worldly possessions..
Main thing is: Family. Faith. Love~
