  1. Those are amazing. Who needs Mexico as the front porch has it all: Beauty, Peace and Drama…

  2. That is some view! Although as per our prior conversation, I’m now imagining your dishes flying around the kitchen and the rocking chairs rocking all by themselves! 😉

    • Hahaha! Ya’ know, you may think I’m full of crap, but we had a glider in one the boys’ nurseries that my wife saw moving on its own. And, one day our nanny got to the house after picking them up at school, and every cabinet door and drawer were open in the kitchen. That was freaky! Still see shadows coming up or down the stairs. But, not much else currently. My wife saged the whole house a few years ago, and things have been calm since. 😃

      • It was pretty strange, and still have no valid explanation. We just tell her to knock it off. I’ve got lots more stories too. Been fairly quiet lately though. I guess she’s either ok with us or has given up on scaring us off. 😃

      • Hahaha! You joke, but we’ve actually thought about having a medium out. It freaks some people out, who come out and spend a weekend. They’ll ask us if we heard things the night before, etc. We aren’t really scared, more intrigued. I find it immensely interesting. Now, if the walls begin to bleed or plates start hurling themselves at my head, I may change my tune. 😃

      • Yikes! I hope not! Are your animals sensitive to it? The cats or dogs, I mean?

      • Ha! I thought you were talking about the boys! 😃
        We did have a black lab when we first bought the place. She would stare at blank spaces and would have startled reactions when we didn’t really hear anything. The cats seem to just do their thing, and our current dig doesn’t seem bothered by anything. That lab though, she was sensitive to it. We got her when J and I first moved in together. That first apartment was the second floor of an old, old house. She was always on point there. That place was definitely active! Got more stories from our time there, that’s for sure! 😳

      • I think most would think I’m a wacko. But, I know what I’ve seen, heard, and felt. And other people have told me stuff about our house now. I believe! 😃

      • Hahaha! You’ll have to. My old-ass memory is fading! 😃

      • Well your old ass memory isn’t as old as mine, so I’ll have to add a post it note to my already ridiculous collection! 😀

      • Ugh!!! Damn those things! They’re everywhere! Whoever came up with that idea is a fucking genius! 😃

      • There’s a funny story behind it – I think they were trying to invent a super glue and ended up with sticky notes! 😀 But yeah, the edges of my computer monitor are covered with them!

      • I get ’em all day at work. By the end of the day, they’re piled up everywhere. Drives me nuts. And the worst is when somebody leaves a note that’s too long to fit on one, so they stick two together! 😃

  3. Nice views. I can’t tell if the boys are walking on the grass or standing on the fence. 🙂 Great work. Thanks for joining the challenge!
