Many times a house will sell more than the assessed value as the assessed value is what the city/ county taxes you on.

After rounding up the troops after eight, they counted their candy and I went off to a neighborhood party. Douglas went to the football game and came home around eleven. She looked very pretty dressed as a flapper. 


 All had a nice, nice night but it was CHILLY!!
