If old houses could talk...

If old houses could talk what a tale it would tell.

It would tell about the growing family and the hardships along the way.

It would tell of the joy and laughter within the walls.


But most of all I believe the old house would say...Please take car of me!!!

A lot of memories in that old home, I wonder where the occupants are now.

Good morning William.  I agree with you, if only we knew how to hear what the walls are saying.  Good times as well as those not so good times.

Wouldn't that be cool if each house came with a time capsule that told the next resident who lived there....the celebrations enjoyed...the reasons for the room here and the secret closet there....

Many old houses live on to be much older...But they do get better care.
