We set right to work on the inside.
Then in 1994, after we had things just the way we wanted, we picked up and moved to California. The Hubby had gotten a new job in the "Bay Area", and we all reluctantly packed and moved away from our beloved home. (and yard)
Well last week while we were visiting Portland and going to a wedding, beach, and playing, we went to our old house to check it out.
Plants and trees have either grown up, or have died and been removed. It seems as if nothing has been updated or remodeled.
We were able to have a reunion with the neighbor across the street. Debbie and even her son Gus were on hand to have a chat with us and it was great to see them.
David and Gus were great playmates when they were young boys, and now they are both married and living lives away from Joseph Court.
What a lot of fun memories the kids talked about as we drove around the area and headed to our wedding reception. Feel free to share kids. (comment - hint, hint)
