|Our house last October, when it went on the market the 1st time|
|Our house, October 2010--somewhat decorated for Fall!|
However, the resounding comment is "happy." Don't get me wrong--I'm glad our house is bringing some cheer to the neighborhood...and secretly, I'm trying to compete with the stone historic Runyon House two doors down at 5th & Osage. In fact, the house across the street is under new ownership and is experiencing a major facelift...and the bungalow behind us is also getting a new roof and siding after many years of neglect. It appears that our neighborhood is experiencing a surge of TLC and I can't wait to see the results...as long as those results don't include me scooping smashed pumpkins off the sidewalk!
