    Every inch of it is like Paradise to me. The only frustrating part is that since the time this image was taken our little pond has dried up. I want ducks sooo much, but our big pond is too far from the house. Besides that the deer, the bobcats, and the coyotes water at our big pond. I don't mind supplying them with water, but I'm not about to supply them with a duck supper. Anyone else have google images of their places?

    To be honest, I couldn't pick our place out either, but my SO grew up here so he really knows the area. After he started pointing things out to me I could "see" it. Before that it all just looked like a big jumble.

    [​IMG] I want to homestead in SW arkansas so bad. In the early 1800's my grandfather's family owned almost the whole lower 1/4 of the state. It's so beautiful there. You are truly blessed.

    Google earth gets my house with a bunch of hoodlums walking down the street in their baggy pants and hoodies when it is 100 degrees outside.

    Got the hoodlums along the highway too, but it's not 100 so instead of looking dumb, they are kind of creepy.

    Here's me... but with the taxes they way they are, might be a housing development a few years. Can't afford it after dad retires! Maybe I can convince him to move out of the city and back to a place like yours!!!
