We live in a house that was probably built in the 50s. It has been cared for, painted and new floors put down but outside of that I don’t think it has been updated in the last 60 years. It has no central heating or air conditioning. The washing machine and dryer are in the detached garage. I am deeply grateful for the dryer. (The elders don’t have that little luxury.) The shower, washing machine and sinks all drain into drains located in the back yard. That was a bit disconcerting the first time I saw that. Thankfully toilets drain else where.

There are two bathrooms in this house. Both wonderful examples of bathrooms from the past. They are both off the hallway so there is not a private bath. Of course that does not bother us as we have the place to ourselves. There are three nice sized bedrooms. One we use for our office.
They do not have electrical outlets in the bathrooms in
The house also has a dining room, living room and a nice little covered patio in the front of the house. The furniture in the house is good. In fact Elder Hind and I both sleep better here than at home. We think the mattress here is much better than our own. The drapes were all freshly dry cleaned and the showers have new curtains. All the house was basically clean but I have been scrubbing it from top to bottom. When you clean something you make it your own,
The main door to the house is on the side. The windows in the house all have bars on them. And there is a barred gate on the front door and one on the patio. In order to get in our house we have to unlock the front gate to drive in and then unlock the gate on the front door and then unlock the front door. It can be frustrating when we get in the car and then realize we forgot something.
We live in a nice lower middle class neighborhood. It is considered a safe neighborhood. And we do feel safe here. We go out walking in the morning and feel absolutely comfortable. But extra security is the norm here and we don’t want to be foolish.
