This is what the old house looks like now. It's for sale. I laughed when I read that it had seven bedrooms. When my parents bought it in 1950, it had two bedrooms. My parents added two to the back and later added a stairway and three bedrooms in the attic. Rabbit holes. My room was the upstairs room facing the front. It had sloping eaves and built-in bookshelves on either side of that window. It had a bed and a desk. Perfect. I'm sorry to say that it's not pictured in the multiple listings.
Mother's kitchen has been painted and it has a dishwasher! Mother poo poohed dishwashers. Our kitchen table extended into the kitchen. I sat at the end with my back facing the window. Daddy sat at the other end. Mother to his side. For the first time, I can't remember where everyone sat. Toni sat at my right.
Help me out--where did the rest of you sit?
