By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Not What You'd Think Part 2


This is my house the other week and no, a tornado didn't hit the area or lightening. The tearing down of the house is a bit sad but necessary. You see most of the lumber that was used to build the house came from my great granddad's house which was built in the late 1800's. Mom says possibly 1887-ish. When that house was torn down in 1947 most of the lumber was used to build this house which was my granddad and grandma's house.
I moved into the house in 1983. Whew!  So the lumber is very old and the termites have gotten to it. I did manage to save the inside doors and hardware and some bricks from the two chimneys.
My girlfriend helped me save grandma's lilies. If you look very closely, you can see to flower pots on the walkway.
Thanks you Gene for the good guess as to what's going on around my way.  And to Magpie's Mumblings, I got a good laugh from your comment. And yes, this was on purpose....hehehehehe!

I'll have more to say after the holiday.  I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial weekend!!!

I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend, also.

Good to know it was on purpose. Termites didn't enter my mind so thought it was bad weather.
Always something happening to keep life interesting isn't there?

Oh goodness. Are you living in a tent during construction? Can’t wait to follow this journey, but glad I’m not living it.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I must admit I'm relieved to know this is on purpose! Hope it isn't too long before you have a new abode that's free of destructive little critters!

Oh...bitter sweet I am sure...that is a lot of history in that lumber


Don't count the days, make the days count!
