The next stop on the Yarden Evolution is our white picket fence area in the front yard (fortunately Theresa edited this post and told me it's not spelled "picked" fence).
Theresa said she wanted a house with a white picket fence (although she insists she said no such thing). My mind went back to the movie "It's a Wonderful Life." Anybody remember the gated yards and the nice, waist-high white picket fences around it that one could chat over with ones neighbors? In reality, we no got gate and the fence is a little short (about knee high), but that's OK, we like it. Theresa says that since our house is so close to the public sidewalk, she wanted a small fence because it makes a good psychic barrier. I'm not sure what she means by that.
When I figure out what's next I'll type at ya.
