Life at the Lake
On July 31, 2005, we signed a contract to purchase a house on Lake Tawakoni, in Quinlan, Texas. After living through the escrow from hell, with sellers who should have been drawn and quartered, tarred and feathered, and tied to chairs to watch 138 consecutive hours of American Idol auditions, we finally closed on November 18, 2005 and moved into our new home on December 18, 2005.

So, who are "we"? We are Scott and Helen, a couple who have been married since July 11, 2004. We have one Labrador Retriever named Jonah; one cat, named Misty; one cockatiel, named Sammy; one Quaker Parrot, named Katie; and one Senegal Parrot, named Ozzie.

We have five children between us - Scott has two, Helen has three. All of the kids are adults, except for Shannon, Scott's 15 year old daughter, who visits us on alternating weekends. Scott is an elevator mechanic, and Helen is a legal secretary. We both work in Dallas, Texas, which is about an hour's drive from our home in some of the worst traffic you can imagine...weehaw. Helen is a city girl, while Scott loves the country, but neither of us have ever lived at the lake, so this will be a new experience for us.

We'll be remodelling the house, redesigning the yards and, of course, fishing! Hope you'll come back and visit us from time to time!
