I posted this pic here a short while ago of my great grandfather myself and my two brothers. This is the same house in which I currently reside. We've made a few updates over the years ....century actually!

Six generations is pretty cool. Sisters house is now at 3 generations. You probably have found tools that make you scratch your head trying to figure out what they were used for.

Do you have any transom windows?

Those are grape vines in front of the shed. Gone now. My GGF made wine. Lots of wine! I still have one of his old presses in the basement. There was a large brick oven attached to the back of the shed where my GGM used to bake bread. In front was a large cement bath tub. My mother and aunts were given baths out there. The old hand pump is now gone, but I remember using it as a kid. We'd pump it until the rusty water became clear and then drink it! You can actually see the old pump if you zoom in. It's in line with the rear bumper of that car.

I most definitely find tools and such that take me a while to figure out!

I'm the good looking one!



That shed right behind us in the pic is where I have been spending a lot of time working on all sorts of projects. I am currently upgrading the electrical system.

Transom windows all around the basement of the house!
