Trespassing on the new neighbors

Greetings from Elkhorn Creek Ranch near the epicenter of the Bakken Oil Formation!

We are getting new neighbors.  This is a phenomenon for us.  Currently, in our township (for those not familiar with what a township is, it is a 6 mile by 6 mile square of land comprised of 36 sections- some are organized, some are not) there is a human population of four adults and one child...... Kyle, his mom, his dad, and his Grandpa and Grandma Hovet.

As I watched the progress of these new neighbor's home take shape, I just had to find out for myself how good their view really is going to be.......
Front of the house
Dining and Living area of main floor
French doors from dining room to back porch and the view off the back deck

SSSSoooooo.  It's a decent view if you're into that kind of thing - Beautiful, colorful clay buttes, hearty ash trees, native grasses, cedars and sage.  Yah, it's a really nice view and it looks like the house will be livable too.

The neighbors, Kyle's Grandma and Grandpa Best!

Welcome to God's Country G & G Best!

A note for the census taker - our unorganized township's human population will increase by two in July!


  1. BEAUTIFUL! But it actually brought tears to my eyes because seeing the home and all of this...makes this move REAL. For you, the addition of neigbors means that we have LOST them as neighbors. Granted, we will gain 4 NEW neighbors that we are excited about ;) but the loss makes me sad none the less.

  2. Yay! :) I'll have to trespass on the neighbor's home when I'm back the end of June. :)

  3. Cynthia, I know they will be missed. If anyone can pull off dual community service, it is sue and Lyle. Hopefully vista back and forth will happen. Kyle is very excited for them to get here.... And nancy, please do. Sue is the hostess with the mostest ;)
