As a producer, director thought sometime
You might need special houses for special scenes. Live in large
Historic house from the real south, called, Climax, Ga,
It is approx 45 min north of Tallahassee, fla.
The town is old with less than 300 people.
No post office or red light. Came across
Your name and thought this could be valuable
To you one day. We need all the excitement
We can get. It was a pleasure telling you of
My house. Merry Christmas. Connee Gunn
