Closing in Fits and Starts

By golly, I think we own a house in Bellevue, Iowa. At least, that's what Steve Nemmers at Ruhl & Ruhl, and Ashlie Schrempf at 1862 Morgtage are telling us. And it's great news. We did the long distance closing thing, what with overnighting packages and wiring money and signing in front of notaries. Steve called yesterday to say he'd compelted the closing with the sellers, Loras and Karen Watters. We'll have to take his word for it. We don't even have keys! But we have a dream, and that'll have to do for now. What ever will we obsess and worry over, now that this house deal is done? Time will tell.
Take a look at the railroad track in this photo. Follow it toward the top of the picture. You can't really see the house, but it is just to the right (east) of the track. Stuck between a railroad track and a river: my dream!
