Hey, guys I now have a computer — can’t blame the small ipad keyboard for my mistakes anymore. Still do not have PhotoShop loaded – so I will do the best I can with the photos I have.
Today: 1. The homestead, 2. Art, 3. Growth in Natural Florida — Click photos to see full size – use back arrow to return to this page.
1. The homestead In 1875 Charles, my Grandpa, was born in the house in the foreground. (In 1936 I was born in the same house/same room). During the period 1900-1903 my Grandpa (Charles), his dad(Micheal), and his brother(Edward) built the house and barn in background. In 1903 my dad was born in that new house. Starting tomorrow, I am going to give you, a day at a time, my Grandpa’s diary entries starting in 1903, January 1. I believe the house was complete by then and Grandma, Grandpa, and their two children lived in the house at that time.
3. Growth in Natural Florida
Not all growth is to our liking – I will show you what this moisture can do when mold spores take root — in a later blog I will do that — but rest assured that we are working on our water problem — and we are kicking the ball forward each day – I think! I plan to keep kicking anyway.
My approach is to be polite and kind to all, but keep the pressure on – I am working to make sure Grandma and I keep the developer, the engineer who approved the site, the owner of the realestate sales office who sold the site, the builder, the state building site inspector/approver, and my insurance company all sitting in one room so to speak – right now everyone is really working together and trying to solve the problem — so far no one says they are worried about whose fault it is – hope it stays that way – If it does not stay that way, I’ll just have to work harder to keep the team focused!
Hope this guy does not hit water! I will be back tomorrow
