That’s not exactly how the trip was planned back in April, but the unexpected came up and instead of cancelling our week in Portland Oregon we just rerouted our trip back home to the event in Pensacola. The typically rainy day in October worked well for me as long as I had my umbrella, and […]

Most people enjoy a frightening fireside story about a haunted house. Stretch your imagination a bit let’s talk about the friendly ghost in a home that occupants typically learn to live with and accept their presence.

Happy Halloween, stay kind you never know who might pop in for a visit.

Old homes are such a treat to tour. It’s just so cool to see how folks managed without all the modern improvements. If I lived here the porch just might be my favorite place, especially in the rain with the pitter patter of a good southern rain storm.
