Life at Curry Bungalow

Lucky us! We are privileged to live here in this lovely old bungalow-style home,
 purchased five years ago after searching for months and months for our perfect place.  
We were beginning to despair that we would never find what we were looking for, and then...,
My Sweetie and I, the G-Man,
(he's a retired Federal Agent... with double "G" initials... so what else could he be called?),
were hooked from the moment we walked in the front door at an
Open House staged by a local realtor.  And if we loved the inside of the house,
we were completely captivated by the yard and gardens.

The house was built in the early 1930's and sits on a park-like acre.
We like to call it, "an intense acre".
We knew, without a doubt, that this was the place that we wanted to live.
So, we bought it.

There is something very special about living in an old home,
one that has it's own heart
 and it's own soul
and has stood the test of time.

We reside here with our much loved Golden, Rosie-the-Wonder-Dog,...

and our elderly tabby cat, Bozz,...

and our wet pets in the koi pond.
They look like flying fish here,
don't they?

Our eldest daughter and our two Grand-Boys recently relocated from far and away
and now they live in our guest house out back.

It's our family compound and we all live and work here together.
Three words ...

 Life is good.
