Is She Trying to Tell Me Something?

Betsy’s ‘dream house’ in Fairfield Bay, Arkansas.  August 5, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

When Betsy lived and worked in Houston, Texas, she often spent the week after Christmas on vacation in Fairfield Bay, Arkansas.  Since we were in the area while celebrating Betsy’s birthday, she decided to show me around.

After finding the timeshare she used to own, Betsy decided she wanted to drive down to the lake.  She said this is something she did on every visit.  On our way to the lake she told me about a beautiful house that she liked very much.  She always told her friends (and her sons) that the house was her ‘dream house’ and that she would own it some day.

Another view of Betsy’s ‘dream house’, Fairfield Bay, Arkansas. August 5, 2012.

We drove by the house, and I must admit that it is very pretty.  We only saw the front yard, but I liked the wooded setting.  The house has a nice long deck along the front.  I must admit that I liked it as well.

Before you read any further, I need to remind you that the first time I ever went to Fairfield Glade is when Betsy wanted to show me where she stayed during a vacation in Tennessee several years ago.  You’ll see the relevance of this statement when you scroll down.





Betsy has that mischievous look on her face. I wonder why?

Do you think Betsy is trying to tell me something?

    i think she is trying to tell you she wants that house in AR… it is beautiful. bob and i have a house we want, and every time we went to Ormond Beach we drove by it several times a day and drooled, they probably thought we were stalking them. it is a very old log cabin and is 6 blocks from the ocean and 5 blocks from the St John river and on 2 acres of wooded land.

    I think you guys need an RV instead so you can take your house with you anywhere you happen to travel 🙂

  14. Linda G. Says:

    Do remind Betsy of all the roses you planted for her .. You’d have to start planting again. It is a beautiful house.

  15. Colin (HB) Says:

    WHAT – stutter stutter! And leave your magnificent Fairfield Glade
    I blame the Arkansas heat for Betsy’s enthusiasm for a change
    of location.
    Look at all the stones around the sign!
    I think I am in a state of mortification at the idea.

    Too good to be true. Maybe the weather “gods” have forgotten
    that this is August. Hope their memory doesn’t reappear.

  16. Mary Says:

    Hmmmmm…..yes, I do believe she is telling you something. Remind her that she would have to leave all those gorgeous flowers you guys have planted in Tennessee.

  17. troutbirder Says:

    There is a hint there for sure

    Whatever she’s trying to tell you, I hope you’re listening.

  19. Rose Says:

    Oh, my, it would be something if you buys bought that place….I like it, too.

  20. Leovi Says:

    It is certainly a nice house in the woods. Greetings.

  21. Carletta Says:

    A fun post George!
    I like the house but it isn’t nearly as lovely and homey as yours. 🙂

  22. diane Says:

    Sew up your wallet. I must admit it looks a nice house but maybe too big for two people. Think of the cleaning…….I’m trying to help you think up excuses.

  23. Jewaicious Says:

    LOL. Cute photo, and not-to-subtle hint.

  24. Andrea Says:

    So what happened next George?

  25. Sartenada Says:

    Maybe. Just listen to her.
