Okay, so you know how on other blogs you read about people who hate their neighbors for various and sundry reasons? You’ll never read about that as long as I live in NJ, because my neighbors rock.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that one set of neighbors is thinking about moving to NC/SC instead of TN and yesterday I got confirmation that my other neighbors are also considering it (Denis had said that, but I didn’t know for a fact).
Yesterday while CootieGirl and I were hanging with Art in the pool we had a long talk about my research into Fort Mill, SC. At some point he joked, “So will you hold our land for us?”
“Absolutely!” I said. We briefly joked about buying a large multi-acre plot and divvying it up three ways. Little do they know I’m completely serious about it.
here’s 2.53 acres for $125K. Divide that three ways and each person gets .84 acres of their own for $41,666. Considering the fact that all three of us are on only .18 acres each – that’s a significant improvement! Seriously – my house is so close to my neighbor that I was able to run a phone wire from my upper floor bedroom window into her lower floor living room to set up my new Tivo box when it was installed and required a landline for setup. So .84 is more than enough.
…I’m really liking this idea. Now I just need to make sure my neighbors follow through and actually do it.
