the house on Clover St.

3458 Clover St. to be exact. the house my dad grew up in with his 2 brothers and 1 sister.  i have been waiting 30 years to see this house and it is actually up for sale!  no, i’m not buying it.  In five years I might though if I get the chance.  we went to the open house and it was incredible.   Sorry dad, your room is pink

This little 10×12 ? room was my uncle Bill’s.  I guess when you’re #4 you get what’s left.  His closet was the linen closet in the hallway.

this was Grandma and Grandpa’s room.  What size bed did they have in here?

The last bedroom down the hall and around the corner.  My dad’s.  Sorry it’s pink now, dad.  Tidbit: under this lovely pink carpet there is a secret compartment in the floor where my dad used to keep his magazines of the sort I refuse to mention.  Wonder if anything is left in it…

Don’t forget the bathroom that all 6 people shared.  What color was this before?
