Ten Years On

We have lived almost exactly ten years in our house... which means it has been almost exactly ten years since we vacated the old "shed" and had ye olde single-wide trucked away to pastures green (literally):


















This left our former dining/ living room in the state of a three-sided outbuilding currently operating as "that 70's house" ( a playroom for 1870's style olden days; and a pinball machine for that 1970's feel).

Oh man, that is so exciting! Congratulations! Is this where we get to stay on future visits? Is a year too long to stay? Or would we be infringing on your pinball time? You had me laughing out loud at the "70s House" idea, but it's so perfect and true that you couldn't have made up a better story for it. Don't you think you need some chickens right there in that little exterior yard? I think it would really complete the rustic look and give the 1870s portion more props and potential for fun.

you can stay as long as you like!! you're right - that would be the chicken place but chickens don't fair too well around here due to raccoons. one's better off with chickens in like, chicago or somewhere.
