December of 2011, I closed escrow on a house on 8.3 acres, in Wilton, Ca. It had long been a cherished dream of mine to return to my country living roots. I love the peace and quiet. I can hear the frogs at night, while gazing into a star-filled sky, with no city light to dim their brilliance. The over-wintering sandhill cranes are visible from my kitchen window, as are the ever parading wild turkeys. The dogs love having all the room to run. It has been a challenge. I still don't know where anything is! I have 2 garages, and the cars are still parked outside! But I would not trade it for anything.
