The Delights of an Old House


Our home was built in 1927.

When you own an old house, there is always another project to do. However, many projects are not planned.

The sound of hammering and sawing is a joyful noise of an old house renovation. But where is the joy when the week before Thanksgiving your husband begins exploring. “Where is that musty smell coming from??”

Yep, he found the smell: in the kitchen, under the floor —  you guessed it — water!

Under the stove, under the dishwasher and out through a brick wall.  He found old piping that was split, rusted, holes, and water every where. Yep, an unplanned plumbing job. And of course, Carl is going to do it himself.

 Come on Thanksgiving — we will be ready!!


 Today do something that will challenge you! We are!!



Now Is Not The Time To Stay Home


“Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

Now Is Not The Time To Stay Home!

It may seem amazing to you, but we ARE surviving the most hateful, unkind election year ever. I follow elections from beginning to the end. I may not always agree with what I am hearing and I may shake my head in unbelief, but in 46 years I have never heard the lies and threats on a candidate’s life and hatred toward citizens of the American community.

Now is not the time to stay home! Now is the time to VOTE!! Your vote matters to your country.  So if you have not voted yet, go to the polls on Tuesday and vote.

Today do something that will challenge you.     I Have Voted!!
