Update, Renewal, House, Rock Wall
Yesterday I told you about
my luck with the SUV. That
was written on Sat. but just
got around to posting on Friday.
So it was hauled in on Sat.
It was late and dude at the
auto shop told me they would
look at it on Monday. However
they did not look at it till
Tuesday. Called and told me it
was the fuel pump. I told them
to fix it. However they did not
get to it on Tuesday. It was late
Wed. when they got it in to fix
it and had it ready. I told them I
would pick it up Thursday cause
I had to find a ride there. Problem
was when they put the pump on
it worked, stopped, worked, stopped.
They went over it for hours to find
a burnt wire. All fixed now and running
great. They went ahead and no charge
fixed my tire. It had a 3 inch screw
Worked a small wedding on Tuesday.
Vow renewal. Married 20 years but
when hubs was told he had leukemia
the bride wanted to do the renewal.
Home across the street. This home
was where Doris lived. Doris is the
woman that past away in March.
A friend of her son's bought it and
is redoing it. Men were working
there the other day and I asked
could I go in. That I grew up
playing in this house. WOW....
I remember that house having
big rooms but when I went in
I realized that was the memory
of what the eyes of a child saw.
Those rooms were not at all
Here in the back yard
a tree has been removed.
Right behind those wood
chips was a swing set.
Dana and I would swing
there and turn flips
over the bars like we
were in the circus.
Back behind Doris house is
a stone wall. It actually travels
behind about four or five houses.
On the other side of that is
the backyard of the houses on
the other street. That wall has
been there since Doris and her
hubs moved there in 1965. We played
The guy up the street and I have
been trying to research the
hood. We found out that it
was farm land belonging to
the Sutton' s and the Hills.
Before them I am not sure
who owned it or how far
back their family went.
Of course, years and years
ago it belonged to Pres Andrew
Jackson. Best we can figure the
wall was probably put there
by the farm families.
I love how the families that have
come and gone here have let
the wall remain and they build their
fences back away so not to mess
with the rock.
I think next we will dive into
the Hills and the Sutton's to
see what we can find.
Interesting being able to look
back and stand in the same place
you did as a child.
thanks for coming by,
