Lisa’s parents had a dog grooming business on rural property about 45-minutes-drive from Akron. The bank will foreclose on the place, but Lisa and her new husband, David, will continue to live at and care for the spread. The parents have moved to a small town in north Texas and Lisa wants to follow. Dave finds that area of Texas hot, barren and isolated. He does not want to move from Ohio. This is causing some tension between the recently wed couple.
