Just closed on a house finally.

Not the colonial in New Hampshire that we were trying for, but a nice enough gambrel style in the People's Republic of Massachusetts.

1.4 acres with a lake about 150 meters up the road where we have access to the water.

Should be interesting.
sounds good.
How's the commute look?
Will you need to learn a new accent?
Can you still buy Moxie there?
Sounds excellent!

1.4 acres and a lake is about as good as it gets. Any fish in it?

Commute is about the same; different roads.

I grew up down here so the accent is about the same as it always was.

Moxie - yeah!

Fairly certain about the fish, not sure what kind yet.

Lots of stone walls around property with decorative quart and mica.

Less traffic than the last place, yet more birds and flowers.

Feeling good so far.
Are we invited to the house warming party?
Absolutely!
Congrats GM!
umm, saw on the News that a Mamma bear and cubs were wandering the streets in Messachewshits, things are getting feral around there!

Good one Grayman, nothing like house hunting and bringing down a goodun.

Had to look up Gambrel, we call them Dutch roofs but they're very rare down here.  Lack of snow I suppose.

Pretty houses though.  Piccies?

...yeah, I've still got a bit of a real estate fetish. Blush
I lived in Massachusetts for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. They talked funny there, as I recall. A carbonated soft drink was called "tonic." They dropped and added "R's"into the language in a peculiar way. A submarine sandwich was called something else. I forget, actually. Maybe a "hero"? We wore ties to public school and called the teacher "Sir." Not my idea.
Lived there again in the late 60's, in the heart of the craziness. Cambridge. Lots of old buildings, compared to most of America.
I lived a block from Harvard; started in 1636.
There were lots of hippies. Some of them were college professors.
Moxie was a popular tonic. Regular coffee had cream and sugar.

Lots of stone walls in New England. I've worked on gambrel roofs. Slate. The area oozes some history.

(Hope to get a peak at grayman's new old stone walls.)
Grinder is the word for the sub.

I may post photos later on when I take a few.
