  1. Jim,

    I love this picture of my grand-dad -- it looks so much like he did when he worked. I am enjoying your blog and appreciate both your work on the house and all of your kindness to my parents. They enjoy hearing from you and about all of your projects.
    Thanks again.

  2. Laura. My Blog post have been fun. I really love your parents and they mean the world to me. This house has alot of your family history and it makes me happy to share with others. The photos you can enlarge from the blog and also copy them so you have them to print if you want. You know this house and its history architectually and historically is something I am trying to preserve for the future. It is 300 years old this year and i hope it will make another 100. You are always welcome to come down to visit the place anytime. Sorry I didn't see your comment until now. Regards Jim You can sign in as a follower on the bottom of page.
