  • Four Corners

    We paid a surveying crew to come up tp the property to define what’s ours and help us figure out how the house has to sit on our lot.  Here is one of the four stakes that designate the corners that make up our property.  In the background, you can see my husband and daughter […]

    …Branded a fool…  What will the kids say?  Monday at school? Oh, Sandy…  Someday, when high-eye-school is over… We have been waiting all summer long for a kid appropriate feature to arrive at the Puget Park Drive-In.  This past week, we decided to take the kids to see the double feature of ‘Shorts’ and ‘G.I.
