Looks like a wonderful location for a Lawnsite BBQ in November or December.

Congratulations, hope you enjoy.

Hard work does pay off.

Tony, All I can say is WOW. You are a very lucky man. I'm jealous. That house is amazing. Hard work has paid off very well for you.

Scot - I know you don't mean it this way I'm sure - this is just a pet peeve of mine, so indulge me.

By saying Tony is "lucky" is to say that he didn't earn it (though you say next sentence that all the hard work paid off). Luck has nothing to do with it. Good fortune is something you make... often it's bad luck that finds you (e.g. truck accidents).

As well, to say you're jealous suggests that you couldn't do the same for yourself.

Perhaps it's just word choice... I know we're all happy for Tony. Sorry to bust your b@lls. Just seems like you're peeing on your own parade.
