Chez Obert

May 26

The Super and I have reached that point in life when it’s time to downsize . . . like to a pup tent.  All too often now when we store something, we can never find it again (like the inhouse cordless phone?) – there are just to many places to hide stuff in a house this size. So, yes, this is an attempt at marketing the ole homestead.  Somehow seems fitting that it’s the 900th blog post, a nice round number?

Blasts From The Past

Now that you’ve seen the house, built 16 years ago, you can see it still looks brand new . . . except older.

It’s a funny thing coming home.  Nothing changes.  Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same.  You realize what’s changed is you.  ~  F. Scott Fitzgerald

    Too bad you can’t smell the beautiful lilacs on the walk down to the lakeside!! They are lovely. ~ Jami (from Mom’s PC!)

    Sunrise, sunset… did I leave anything there the last time I was there six years ago? You should ask Josey to write a song about the Lake Darling Years. Perhaps you should build a new smaller place next to Carlos Creek with scuttle service to SAWA-New. Good luck.
