    • Cindy, you are so right. I like how you expressed this. Going to try and read some post tonight. Grandson has had scrimmage and practices until 8 pm and fun to watch his first year of tackle. Last game a member of opposing team ran the wrong way with the ball. πŸ™‚

      • Heck with a week, Squirrel Awareness Month is all 31 days of October! My old post on the subject still gets a lot of hits every year when people look it up. And then there is Squirrel Appreciation Day, which you can mark down for January 21st every year.

    • I believe you see pretty doors, Maniparna. You could join us! I would love to see doors you pass. . . πŸ™‚
      Norm and others at the site who take pictures of doors and say a few things about it. I tried this over a month ago, before I started taking pictures with my cell phone. It is so hard to use words but i did have fun. Check out other doors, if you wish on the only link I listed above.

    • Jenny, you probably could take one photo a week and write about doors, or something you wish to start. . . We would follow your idea, since it at least helps me organize ahead.
      By the way, I accidentally had a couple posts “come up” in people’s emails. They will show up at another time and then I hope to still listen to readers thoughts. It is tough to program on weekends and not “goof up!” (Well, anyway one had my grandsons with a man on stilts and another had my first attendance at a book club.
      Hope you have a great weekend, Jenny.

    • You are so right and I hesitate to say this so as not to offend anyone. A photo is also easier since many descriptions were done my first almost 3 years!
      Brenda, the new owners have made some cool additions, almost modernizing the very old house. Thanks for being around to read my 1000 word “essays” of the past! Lol

      • I joined a book club and am reading a fascinating memoir, “The Glass Castle.” The author of many books, Jennifer Wall, had parents who created a transient lifestyle, dumpster diving, taking kids to sleep in the desert, . . . My life is pretty tame, Brenda. I liked the book, “Running with Scissors,” another fanciful memoir. The movie was not nearly as interesting. I am coming to visit. πŸ™‚

    • Carol, this is a fantastic comment since this was caused me to slow down and look. I used to know the owners from 1990. Their kids went to school with mine. I like the bolder and more open, friendly “air” of this beautiful old home. The lighting really catches your interest. Thanks, Carol.β™‘

  1. A beautiful house, charm and elegance from bygone days, if the interior has retained its charms as the outside, it would be a beautiful residence to appreciate the days when the world held charm and Grace.
    I can imagine the love and laughter from the past, emanating from the walls.
