This beautiful brick house was built by my grandfather, my dad's dad. I never met him, but he built a great house. I haven't lived there in about 10 years now, but every now and again I will dream that I am back in the house.

Before I go I have a quick congratulations to send out to my friend Gillian Summers. She gave birth today to a 7 pound, 11 ounce baby boy. I can't wait to meet him!

Gee, What a lovely house! I luv it, you should be ever so proud! I hope it's still in the family because it's a home that was made with love to become a home of love!
How blessed you are! Congrats to your friend, talk about blessed, what a blessing!

Unfortunately my parents sold it about 10 years ago, when we moved. I wish it was still in the family, but my older brother stopped by one day and he asked the new owners if he could take a walk though, and they said yes. He said they haven't changed a thing in the house. Everything is still the same.

Very cool house! Its interesting because my great grandfather was a brick layer and used to build brick houses. I never saw or knew any of the houses that he made, a piece of our heritage that was lost. Keep this image to pass on to those who come later!

Happy wandering!

It would be so fun to go back there! Unfortunately the neighbor hood it's in now, is not a good. So sad!
