As we drove through the resort, the first thing we saw was two trailers, side by side with FOR SALE signs in the windows. Brenda and I joked about buying them. We drove down the road. There were cozy cottages, a great little store and a beautiful beach.
The guys laughed when we told them about the trailers for sale and this idyllic place. My husband Greg said he knew we would come back with something to buy. We convinced them they at least needed to see the place. So that's what we did the very next day.
As we stopped in front of the trailers to look around, "The Sheriff" came out to greet us. He let us in one of the trailers and got someone else to open the other. We went inside to check out the trailer and taped on the side of a shelf was a small piece of yellowed newsprint. It read, "There comes a time in our life when we have to be thinking about counting days and not dollars." As we walked around the outside of the trailer later, I heard my husband say, "We could do this, you know." Before I knew it, we owned trailers on the lake.
I swear its the quickest decision my husband has ever made!
