No, history is much more complex than we give it credit for. Btw clear away a couple of trees and I could live there with a little touch-up.
There is a book titled, "The Good Old Days: They Were Terrible!"It gives detail you never got in school.
Yes, it sure is, David. And we remember how we wanted it to be.It's the house my granddad built when he moved up to the Ft. Assiniboine area in the mid-1920s. It's a bit of a fixer-upper, but it's not in bad shape, really. I think you'd like the spot.Messymimi, I've never heard of that book. It sounds pretty interesting.
History is a story we keep rewriting to make sense of the present.
I love messymimi's comment!!! HAAAAAAAAA, the good old days, they were terrible....love it.Mary
Oh, if I had a million or so dollars, I would fix it up. I love that it has stood the test of time so well.
Ron, I agree.Mary, one wonders what was so good about them.Reb, me too. And I'd be right there helping.
What was so good about them? We've already survived them. We can't say that about the present....Mary Anne in Kentucky
Good point, Mary Anne.
The fact that the house is still standing after all these years is a testament to our grandfather's carpentry skills!I would also live there. All it needs is a little repair. And a new kitchen.
My daughter is in the phase of asking IS MAKING XYZ HARD?all this week has been:Is making a house hard mama?That's pretty impressive.fixerupper or not.
Yes, Cousin. He was a talented, skilled builder. A bit of work and it'd be fine.Miz, thanks.
Things rarely are the way they used to be. Glad I found your blog today. I loved the pictures they were beautiful.
Thank you, Meandu. I'm glad, too.
That sounds like a Yogi Berraism to me. :)
It kinda does, doesn't it? Nice to see you back in the blogosphere, Hilary.
