This was my grandparents home. My pawpaw’s auto shop was in the building on the right side of the frame. There was a big barn to the right of it, just out of the frame. I see my pawpaw’s tractor sitting at the edge of their garden. Lots of wonderful memories in that photo. Pawpaw passed away, in his sleep, in the front bedroom (window closest to front of the house).

I haven’t been by there in a long time. The house has been sold and remodeled since then. I bet the new owners no longer have to go out of the house, down the back porch, then into the bathroom. The barn and shop are long gone. As are most of the trees.
