The Goodnight and Loving cattle drive group had barely escaped with their scalps intact many times. They’d survived a number of battles with Native American Indians – but Oliver Loving would meet his match – however not directly at the hands of the band of Apache Indians that forced him up against a rock wall and into a gun battle – Oliver Loving fought them off, and escaped. He floated himself six miles down the Pecos River to a different river crossing, and then lay injured for 3 days earlier than some Mexicans and a German boy discovered him and carried him to safety. Oliver Loving had sustained a wound by his wrist and into his facet.

Our timing was excellent; we arrived simply at 5:30 in time for cocktail hour. The ‘Brien family has at all times had cocktail hour before dinner.

Foreclosures generally seem priced unexpectedly low. But there is a motive the market pays much less for these properties. Usually it’s condition.

I’ve seen far worse: on the way out the door an angry home-owner has been known to take a sledge hammer to the place. I’m in the premarketing stage on one where the bid to trash out the place is $12,500!
