Young gal with all kindzamoney bought an old farm down the road a piece and dumped big bucks into it. I really mean BIG bucks. Now I'm glad it's not condos, so don't get me wrong about that. But she had a fancy sign put up by the entrance that says "Deer Creek Farm". I liked it a lot better when it was just the Horner place.
Ain't no creeks (or cricks either, that I know of) in NH. Sounds kinda yuppity to me but, hey, it's her money.

Les you gotta come into the age of estates! Down here we have a mine acid infested crick, or creek and it's commonly refered to as shut crick... A couple bought a piece of ground and built a cabin, then promptly put up a sign over the driveway declaring it stream vista estate! The first ceeeement truck tore it down,,, Now it's the old boy scout camp again... Hehehe.
Of course I don't have alot of room to talk, we kind of reside here in our palacial estate,,,
Oleo acres,, the cheaper spread>

I gotta routed sign my wife had my brother make for my birfday many years ago. It says "Orchard Enough". Lichen growin all over it. I wanted to name the place "Poverty Heights" but she wouldn't let me.
When it comes to creeks, we don't have any. They're called brooks around here. "Creek" conjures up something else to me anyway. Like maybe a meandering thing, slow moving, with maybe a turd floating down past the sewer lobsters every so often.

'The Crick' here is Lewis Creek...Grew up shooting fish, muskrats and ducks down at the mouth...Part way up is a nice skinny-dipping hole...Way up is good Trout Fishing...All the way at the headwater is a Wildlife Management Area where I hunt deer and bear...

Than there is Otter Creek which was one of the main 'highways' into Vermont for the Indians and the early whites...Those are just the ones within 10 miles...

When the Otter rises...She is one angry wench...

Lewis Creek Farm is a tad yuppyish for sure though ;-)
