Tom, I can't stand it.  Quitcher braggin' and just tell me you live in a regular house.  Me and my mules, horses, and sinks.  On the other hand, I have AC and a balcony.  So there!

I can't play one-up with you.  The best I can come up with is that in Laramie, our house was on Ord Street.  Some of the streets were named for Union generals who served in the West after the war.  Fetterman, Russell (who's he?), Ord, Steele, Sheridan, Custer, Kearny (Stephen), Garfield, Harney, Lewis, Clark.  Oh, wait.  Laramie was founded in 1867 with the construction of the Union Pacific, so no Civil War houses there.

I bet that now and then, one of your generals talks to you and tells you all the nasty gossip about the others.  What egos they had!
