ok Laine, so now you're a resident in Sweet Home Alabama, now you gotta decide if you're gonna be an Auburn fan, or that other school on the other side of the state.....

Your kids didn't mind the move? Wow, you are lucky! Mine had a fit when we moved to different neighborhood in the same school district.

Oh they "minded" quite a bit, but, being an Army family, they did what dad said. What did dad say? "Suck it up and drive on". They are tough kids, good kids too. A new school for my oldest on his senior year sucks, but, its the Army life.

On a good note, they love the new house, the area and the fact that they only have to drive about 8 miles to school. Me on the other hand, I drive 45 min each way to work.

Laine,

Good on you! You played the real estate game and won, which is not easy to do these days. Your kids haven't declared warfare on you and you have a runway to fly on. Please explain the runway?

Well, I wouldnt say I won the real estate game. Long story there, but, due to a series of unfortunate events, I ended up paying out over $8000 at closing. That was 8K I didnt have too. So, Im in a fairly deep hole at the moment and trying to figure out a way out. But, it is what it is and I'll do whatever it takes to make sure the family is taken care of.

As for the runway... about 300 yards from my front door is "Liberty Field". Its a private grass runway on my neighbors property that he flys his beautiful 1948 Champ off of. A couple other fellas fly there light sports there also. In fact, there was an Extra giving me a "private airshow" this past Sunday morning at about 0700. Smoke on and all. Dude was cutting up pretty good too.

If you want to find Liberty Field on a map, find Dothan, AL (way southern Alabama) go north about 15 miles and you'll see Headland airport. About 5 miles north of Headland airport is Liberty Field. My house, 40x40 shop and 8 acres is a few hundred yards north of the runway.

Oh, and did I mention that there are a dozen or so fellas (including my neighbor) that fly RC out there nearly every weekend? I couldnt have asked for a better place to retire.

Laine,

Go over that $8,000 charge with a real estate lawyer, or at least take a good look at it. Sometimes, they sneak in illegal charges.

I forgot to wish your father well.

At one time I had three guys working for me from Dothan! We hired one and the other two just sort of came along!

Sounds like you got the makings of the Dothan RC Warrior Club going!
