... on just about every corner, grand ones and plain ones. On the way we had a hilarious time listening to country radio which played all the great "classics" such as "She thinks my tractor's sexy" and an old favourite "I don't have you but I've got my chainsaw".

He decided to build his estate there, inspired most likely by his grand-daddy ...
