I just got the best phone call. I didn't recognize the number, so, I didn't pick it up. But I played the message and I got really excited. It was from the man who bought our cottage in Michigan. He wanted to know where the septic tank was. Before
I could tell him about where it was, we started talking about the cottage. He told me that he took the basement which was where we stored our boats and bikes and "stuff" and made a family room , put in French doors ,a bathroom and another deck. Then he made
a spiral staircase from what was our first floor to the new basement family room. Plus more French doors . I'd love to see it. We talked about our old neighbors and found out that he has a brother who has a winter place not far from Venice. I hope we can get
together when he visits his brother . The call was bittersweet. It made me remember how much we loved the cottage. Sigh.
