Real estate, housing and economic news round up for 6-5-2016…
Happy Sunday! Lots to share today as I have not posted a round up in a few days. I started working on the swing set this week and hope to have it finished before the grand kids graduate college.
On Friday, we went to see Southern Culture on the Skids. Hard to describe exactly what genre of music it is. Sometimes they are called rockabilly, psychobilly, surf music or alternative rock.
I just call them awesome. There was dancing and flying fried chicken!
Do yourself a favor and go see them. You will not be disappointed.
