I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude,
two for friendship, three for society.
~Henry David Thoreau

As the old house was somewhat complete and was “dressed” for company from the Tennyson reunion, and since so many had inquired about seeing her, we hosted an impromptu Open House last weekend. Family, friends and neighbors attended.

Many shared fond memories of my grandparents and visits to the old house. Gracious praise was heaped upon her restoration / preservation. Indeed, she is looking fine for her age.
