And, looking into the history of the area, this was originally their carriage house!
All this stuff is within about 10 blocks of where I currently live, and about 3 blocks from the house I grew up in, and 2 blocks from the Harding Home, which was behind the house I grew up in.
We had a really good reunion today! It was good enough that I didn't even realize that it was 6 or 7 pm when Bro said we were leaving, and we'd been there since 1:30! And, maybe, best of all...their house is so big, I never even saw Psycho, until I went past him going out to Bro's SUV to leave. He was sitting out in the garage talking to Uncle D, Mom's 'baby' brother (yeah, he's 70-something). No, that's wrong of me, I know...but...I'm nothing if I'm not honest!...we should all be so lucky to do that, right?
Anyway, it was really neat to see everyone again, I haven't seen everybody together, and all happy to see each other, ever! And there were a few people that I felt really stupid because I didn't recognize them right away, and I was really glad that Bro's daughter (niece A) was beside me so I could whisper "Who's that?". Duhhhh! That's awful!! I knew all these people WAY before she was born!! But it's a little bit different when the girl you're wondering about is about niece A's age, and she has 2 kids...it was one of my cousins' daughters! I could see it when she was standing beside me talking to niece & me, but until then...What's funny is that when we were all at Grandma's farm on Sundays, when Boo & were teenagers, this girl was about 5, and used to follow us EVERYWHERE, no matter how hard we tried to lose her!
All right, I know, this is getting confusing, so I'm gonna go and watch another of my favorite tv shows, 'Girls Behaving Badly'. I absolutely love this show! It sounds like it'd be x-rated or something, but it's not, it's a bunch of women in their early 20's just playing pranks on regular people, like one of them is dressed up in dodgeball clothes, and she runs up to a random person at a mall, hands them a rubber dodgeball, and yells 'Cover me!', and promptly throws her own dodgeball at a customer's head, and runs after it hits them. Then both those people look at each other, like, WTF?? This is gettin' good...one's in a porta-potty, yelling "Hey! Help me! I can't find the phone in this phone booth!!"
