Lake McQueeney Living .. Summer 2008

Where it all began... in a Sear's Catalog kit house built by Laura's Grandmother almost 100 years ago. On the banks of a lake surrounded by pecan trees and farm land, neighboring an almost ghost town, Seguin, and home to summer vacationers and our best friends of the summer, our 80 year old neighbors who would weekend next door in their home just as old as ours.


Watching the May Flies mate on a September evening from the dock ..



Our view of the lake and backyard, and our first office/studio ...


Orphanage style sleeping ...


The windmill that greeted us just before the turn for Lake McQueeny ...



Complete with no AC (it's hooooot in Texas during the summer, btw), no cable - no TV, no phone, no dishwasher, no cell phone service except out on the dock, one large bedroom upstairs with six beds in it, open living, open windows, and eventually we hooked up dial up internet. Oh, and no mailbox. Or "mail receptacle", apparently if you don't have one of those, instead of knocking on your door, the mail truck returns the package cross country with a pointing finger stamp...
