My Dream House and My Boys When They Were Young

Hello Friends, I know that my new friends want to see my animals and I will put some animal pictures on tomorrow I promise.
I have been looking for my pictures of my dream house for over 2 months now and I have still not found them, but I found 4 of those that I have been looking for and here they are. The first is my dream house!! That house had a play room that was almost as big as the house I live in now. Just one room that had a full size pool table, a living room set of furniture, a refrigerator and in one corner my sewing room!! That was a BIG house! It also had a very nice kitchen!
I loved that house so very much!
This is my second son Don. He was in the third and fourth grade when we lived there. Don was a fun loving boy and he got in trouble with me a lot of the time because of his mischievous. I look back on it now and I laugh, but at the time it was trying.

These are my boys! David and Don. David was my good one who was always ready to help. He keep good care of this stuff. Never caused much trouble. Don was always missing. Where was Don, when you needed him??? He gave me a lot of worries all through his growing up. He is now head chef at a restaurant in Daytona Beach Fl.

This is David. He was in 7th and 8th grades at the time we live in the Holly Hill house. David is
smart, he had the advantage of a full time Mother when he was a baby till he was almost 3 years old. David married and got a job selling cars. He was very good at it. He worked up the ladder
to assistant manager of the whole dealership, then the crash in o7 !!! The dealership closed and he was out of a job. He' s now selling insurance for New York Life. He is not happy about this
Well, friends, tomorrow is another day and I will be all animals.
Love you all,

  8. Hi Fern,

    Nice house and family.My dream house is a small log home, two bedrooms etc. I don't dream big, and I still will never have a small one. That's okay, I'm satified and blessed w/ the roof over my head and family. I'm living a simple life and thats not too bad. Just sometimes a struggle.

    Looking forward to your animal pictures. Animals make the best friends and or people. which ever way you look at it!

  9. Fern,

    Just wanted to drop back by and say how yummy those popcorn balls sounds. I would have liked to have been one of your trick or treaters.
    Love you too!
