    Looks like he could be living there.
    The only thing missing would be the scotch and soda.

    What are those graves - his dogs?
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Just stumbled on this post. Most interesting.  Do they let everyone tour the quarters or were you allowed separately?  Thanks for sharing.
    The original - "Renaissance Redneck"

     You walk around the outside of the house , viewing inside from doorways and windows . You can take a guided tour , or walk around by yourself .

    Islands in the Stream is a pretty good book that contains many adventures on "Pilar". From sport fishing to chasing n a z i s.

    My biggest fear is that after I die, my wife will sell my fishing gear for the amount I told her I paid for it.
