What i like most about my neiis the fact that I am smack right in the very middle of town and cab walk to wherever if needed

It is not far from a neighborhood Walmart, Gas stations, Fast food franchises, and even a Donut ship.

It's clean, family friendly, and safe to live in. Everything is close by, the interstate is only a few minutes from the house.

I like the school my children go to. It's one of the best schools here, and I wish I could afford a better house in a better neighbor hood close to that school.
