    Thank you for the website tour. I'm in Florida and thinking about semiretiring up your way in Lyles. The more I read, the more I like. I've worked hard in my life as a massage therapist and
    lymphedema with breast cancer survivors. I love to garden and hike. My horse is being retired to a farm up in Lynnville and I want to be near him. Love antiques and thrift shopping - too much! Trying
    to par down so I can come up. I'll visit in November.
