lol, in a good way though! Met with the lawyer today to get the ball rolling on buying this place from my parents. Looks like we'll close on 12/31 with it taking effect on the first of January.
Chad, The excited!

Congrats!! Is this a place you grew up on? At any rate it'll be that much more special because your folks had it.

Thanks for the congrats everyone!
mojo, it isn't the home place, dad isn't willing to give up just yet (he's only 52)I can look out the window, crane my next and see the main farm about 3/4 of a mile away. This place is his second farm that he bought in '85...getting the "family discount" We've lived here since September of 2000. 90 acres...50 or so tillable. The machine shed and a cattle shed are nice. The barn and house are pretty rough. The house a '76's going to have to be replaced next summer...we're falling through the floor in places!
Chad, playing hopscotch just to get into bed...

Sounds perfect, love a place thats 50/50 rowcrop/pasture. And the distance will give you just enough notice to get things 'straightened up' when you see them coming up the road!LOL

Best of luck to you Chad,Jenny put in a bid on a 3 BR 2 B in town the other day a lot lower than they wanted but was told today that the people was concidering her offer. We have admired this place for years,its in town but has a little over 2 ac and the house sits way back from the street.I'm hoping they will reject her offer but if we do buy there is no way i'm selling the farm until i see if i can live in town or not,.Living in town does have its advantages and disv. We'll see. James
