May 21, 2018 - End of an era/new directions

Hello folks. Well it finally happened. The MH has a happy new owner and we are now able to plan our new direction. Lots of plans being made already. But then a bump happened lol. Look what followed Randi home and needed some loving. They are quite a handful but lots of fun at same time. Hot tub has been installed, waiting for pool now and then our work here should be done. Will be nice to hit that finish line. Hope all are well and enjoying the start of summer. Take care all and see you down the road someday.
