Love the garden gate and the transom windows. You clearly put A LOT of work into this property. Best wishes.

TRUE STORY:

Well, I worked all day at the guesthouse doing little jobs (added a second electrical outlet in one of the bathrooms, painted orange stripes on some steps out back that might have tripped somebody, successfully removed a blood stain (my own) from a sheet...don't ever make a bed with a cut on your finger...yes, cut myself putting in the electrical outlet).

Then I headed home and opened an ice cold Arkansas-made beer. Then another.

Then I saw this thread with the title "still for sale" and thought, yes, I'd love to buy a still and make my own moonshine. I figured it was a post by Kathleen in West Virginia, since I think of that, like Arkansas, as a land of stills and moonshine. Clicked the link and then remembered what we're talking about here!

Funny - I thought the same thing when looking at this title.  Soggy minds on the same track! Hickup!  (Just back from Mtns of VA where the shine runs in gal jugs.) 

Back to topic - Sun SHINE (ha ha)  I know you are disappointed.  Sure hope the right person comes along soon.

TeeHee!! I can buy "shine" in my local grocery. What a change from the old days of only "near beer" being legal.

Sorry it has not happened for you..but I know lots of folks who have had their places up for sale now for over 6 years. In this economy you just have to hope for the best.

I am so sorry. I know how much you wanted the sale (but i think you are sorry to be leaving this place - even though you ARE ready for the next adventure). It will happen when the time is right. (Have you buried St Francis in the back yard facing the house?)

I've always heard to bury St. Joseph, head down.

YES!! THAT is the one! Can you tell it is not my brand? My neighbor in Illinois did it and said he must be dug up after the sale. I forget what she said had to be done with the old boy after that.

I always heard that reducing your price, if it is too high, helps a lot.
