Moon Nest

The almost full moon was beautiful on Wednesday and Thursday.  The clouds and rain moved in yesterday, blocking a view of the full moon.   My view of the moon on Wednesday included a lot of trees, but it made for an interesting shot.  It looks like the moon is sitting in a big nest.

Five Years and Counting…

Today marks a half-decade since the Architectural Committee approved two “new construction” packages for Bent Tree Partners, LLC.  The photos below, of the two projects, were taken this week.  It looks like another portajohn has fallen victim to the strong winds.

Sold

One recent home sale in Bent Tree had an interesting listing description.  The first sentence was “Cute and freshly renovated home perched on top a very, very steep driveway offers cozy living in the desirable Bent Tree subdivision.”  The last sentence was “Please take caution if attempting to drive up the driveway.”

The closing price was $79,500 and Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc. represented the buyer.  If my calculations are correct, BTCPI made $357.75 on that sale.  This was the second home sale involving BTCPI.  Based on calculations, BTCPI probably brought in $1179 on the first transaction.

By the looks of the tire marks in one of the listing photos, the driveway really is a doozy.
