SERVICE IN BROWNSVILLE OF THE CONTINUED THREAT OF WILD FIRE
DEVELOPMENT THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF JANUARY. OFFICIALS STATED

AWAY FROM GRASSY AREAS...AND KEEP WATER OR A HOSE CLOSE BY THE

  holiday vacancy
Due to a last-minute cancellation, I find myself with a vacant condo for New Years. This is a great opportunity for someone to host a holiday gathering in a fun and spacious party spot, get happy and then crawl into the conveniently adjacent bedroom. Make me an offer -- I am ready to negotiate!
