Do you remember the Steve Martin movie from the ’90s Father of the Bride? There are a ton of memorable quotes in that movie but because I’m such a house junkie, I love the one where George and Nina Banks are visiting their future son-in-law’s parents in their massive home.  George needs to use the restroom:

The bathroom down here is being remodeled, why don’t you try upstairs, it’s the seventh door on the left.”

“Second?”

“Seventh.”

“Seventh?”

A true assortment of colors that's for sure!

The Queen Anne Victorian home has over 21 different paint colors on the exterior

What does that movie and quote have to do with today’s Tarrant County Tuesday?  Today I want to tell you about a home with 10 bathrooms.  Yes, I said 10.  Can you imagine giving someone directions to bathroom No. 5 or No. 9?

Find a Taste of the Hill Country on this Custom Country Estate with 21 Acres | CandysDirt.com

Take a moment and marvel at a slice of the Texas Hill Country in the gorgeous custom estate on 21 acres at 661 Driftwood Ranch Trail.

Located in the gated community of Driftwood Ranch on the Brazos, this remarkable property sits on the headwaters of Lake Granbury. That’s just 12 miles south of Weatherford and 45 minutes southwest of Fort Worth.

With a 3,589-square-foot house and 2,500-square-foot shop and a four-stall horse barn, this is a gentleman’s ranch with luxury amenities and a serene atmosphere. Austin stone and cedar clad the house, and those materials accent the interior, as well.

Embattled school transportation provider Dallas County Schools may have been able to continue its relationship with Dallas Independent School District, but as early as this morning it seemed its superintendent could be the most recent casualty of a recent spate of very bad news.

DCS, which provides busing for Dallas, Carrollton/Farmers Branch, Highland Park, Irving, Aledo, Cedar Hill, Coppell, DeSoto, Lancaster, Richardson, Weatherford and White Settlement school districts, called a special meeting today.

The agenda included two ominous items –  “Consider Appointing an Interim Superintendent” and “Consider Defining Requirements and Authorizing Search for a Permanent Superintendent.”
