    Hi Ross,

    Laura told me to read your blog today.

    I was surprised to see info about this house. I have been admiring it ever since it went on the market mid summer. As I've walked down the trail during the warmer days I managed to find a path to the crazy cool back yard and saw the owner.

    "I love your house, I wish we could buy it."

    "Me too," he said.

    It is huge, it has such potential, it is in an awesome location. According to Reuben, we just can't afford it; no way no how.

    Whoever gets it is lucky.
