Hi Bob,

I just wanted to say hi and let you know that I totally enjoy reading the blog. Gary and I are very impatiently awaiting the construction of our home, which will most likely begin sometime next year. It is still in the planning stages. We are waiting for two more kids to graduate high school in May before we really get going on it.

We are not world record holders of any kind (unless you could qualify fine wine consumption as an event). But hopefully we will bring something of value to the community!

When school is out in June, we are going to put our house on the market, and begin the exodus to Austin as soon as it sells. We are looking for a place to live temporarily (I hate to mention the apartment monster, but it might be an option for us if the timing is right).

We do not plan to cut down any Spanish Oak trees as long as we can help it. We are thinking Hill country Tuscan for the house and want our home to complement the neighborhood beautifully so don’t worry about us spoiling things! We are hearing a lot about Musket Rim houses on your blog. This is cool because our lot is #7 on Musket Rim, which is at the top of the turnaround facing the preserve next door to, I believe, the Pigfords? Is that right? Last time we looked at our property, the house just west of us had poured the foundation. Is that the one story people are saying looks so nice and “floats above the property?” COOL! That is what we want too.

We wanted a social membership to the club but we will make our own social activities if they don’t want us, and to be honest, we really couldn’t care less if they don’t. Hopefully we will fit in just fine.

We look forward to living at Spanish Oaks, and we are glad that we have a way to keep abreast of the goings on until we get there. Thanks for making the blog!
