Hi @Yvonne Smith. When we bought this place back in the late 80's, we were in the poor countryside. Now, I'm in prime real-estate. My property is worth more than five times what we paid for it. Who would have guessed. Since Michael died, I've had motion detectors, extra strong fencing, and an electric gate installed. In the last effort to steal my car, the thieves tore my gate totally off it's support column. In two years, my gate has been broken four times. But so far the only real deterrent has been Bobert moving in.
