You started in the right place (Shep's); I'd recommend that you stay there!:) I just finished my 11th season there, and you couldn't pry me out of there with a crowbar.

Thanks for the leads, everybody. Mr. Prop-be-gone, you did get a steal. I followed the link, and it's up over $300 at the moment. It's a shame, but that's just too big for the place I intend to put...
