    Today Heidi and I are writing our last mortgage payment. Twenty years of similar checks behind us. Now the house, lock stock and barrel, belongs to us.
    Well, and of course the freakin' bears.

        Sounds like it's Mortgage Burning party time!!!!!
        “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
        “To talk of many things:
        Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
        Of cabbages—and kings—
        And why the sea is boiling hot—
        And whether pigs have wings.”
        ― Lewis Carroll

                  Hate to be the cynic here, but don't pay your property taxes and then find out how much you actually own. You may find the bears to be more friendly

                  Congratulations. It will be a long time until I have the excuse for the same party. And no bears here. The occasional Armadillo though. They are cute too but only bother the flower beds

                          Thanks all. Now here's the funny part.
                          (there's always a funny part)
                          Following Bavarian/Austrian tradition we ordered an ornate sign last month that reads Unser in heavy Gothic lettering(German for Ours).
                          The sign was ready last week and we jumped the gun and put it up early.
                          While cutting grass Sunday I had two people I don't even know, stop along the road and ask if I was any relation to Bobby, (they were dead serious) and this morning I was on the phone from New York to my wife and she said a little boy came to the door and asked, "Mrs.Unser, would you like to buy candy to support the Little League."
