    One of those horrors from the sixties. It has non of the character of the brick building in the foreground.

    It was claimed that developers after the war did more damage to my home town (Grantham) than the Germans.

    This is an "Air Tractor." My neighbour is a crop sprayer and must be working locally.

    You can tell from the shadow that the airplane is taking off. He is flying due south.

    There are two properties on the south of Waco Drive, ours is the westward one with the big white hanger and house next to the runway.

    The row of pines to the south were decimated in our recent tornado as were some of the trees around our house.

    Our road is crushed rock, on the right running north south is a dirt road. We have more dirt roads in our county than paved.

    Nice house though David, wish I had that kind of outlook, what is property prices like around you?

    Waco refers to that type of airplane, we have a Cessna Drive and Stearman drive too.

    I would expect it would be valued at around $400,000.00. Properties in our area (Alabama) are generally cheaper than the rest of the country. I could not afford this place on the west coast or east coast, the U.K. either.

    The only utility services we have is electricity and cable. We have water from a well, and a septic tank. We have no garbage collection.
