A Piece of Texas History
Something cool that the inspector pointed out yesterday was the huge oak tree behind the house. He said that by the size of it, he thought it was a "heritage oak". Apparently that is a state designation for trees that were there prior to 1836. He said we should measure it, photograph it, and make sure our insurance company knows about it in case anything ever happens to it. I'm not sure what is funnier - that we were going to put a treehouse in it or that it is surrounded by what will be the chicken pen. I guess if it has been there all that time, it has seen stranger things than us. Well, maybe.
