    Sorry I must have been typing my second post on the house when you asked this.

    It had a pool in the back yard that would need a complete rebuild. I believe a dog ruined all of the carpet. The house was empty for a while and no one took care of it so the gutters were clogged with leaves and sticks so I imagine there is water damage and mold somewhere. I'll try and find a link to when it was for sale.

    ok, that makes much more sense. I was thinking even outdated it should have been a half mil unless most of the square footage came from an attached machine shed or something crazy like that.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    Found it with an assist from Google Maps.

    Assessor's page:
    http://beacon.schneidercorp.com/Appl...e=894720231012

    5,551 square feet
    0.86 acre lot
    5 bed, 2.5 bath
    FOUR FIREPLACES
    800 square foot pool built in 1930
    IIRC there is a built in hot tub that has it's own room
    If you look at the floor plan it has a 970 square foot "great room"

    Sold in 1993 for $450,000
    Sold to current owner in 2006 for $281,000
    Assessed at $399,500
    Currently isn't for sale but I believe they were asking around $315,000 and getting no interest from buyers

    Yeah, Sioux City was/is definitely not my first choice of places to live but the wife's job brought us here and she's the bread winner so I had to deal with it. Sioux City isn't great but it isn't terrible either. We make it work for now but we won't live here forever.

    For me too.

    No wrath incurred. I was too cheap to buy a pet rock, so I painted my own. I don't remember the name it had back then; I pulled Horace out of a hat for the post. :)

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    Back to the Etsy discussion, a friend of my wife's does the invitations/announcements design work previously mentioned, as well as some other cool things. I bought a two sign set for a baby room to give as a gift that came as a download. I printed it and framed it and had a pretty cheap baby gift that looked really nice.

    That's the only thing I've bought on there, but there are some cool things that I would absolutely consider purchasing down the road, when I have a bit more disposable income.

    Is there a better feeling than putting on new socks for the first time?

    New underwear is not bad either.
