Well Now Ain’t that Somethin’?

I put on my big girl panties and went back to the cabin today. I’m not going to let some silly snake skin scare me away from my plans. I have to admit I did stop and buy a couple lottery tickets on the way though. There’s just got to be a way to raise enough money to seal those cracks!

Anyhoo, I set to giving the cabin a good cleaning when I got there (after a quick snake hidey-hole inspection.) It had been a very long time since it has seen a good cleaning. I know there was at least 1o pounds of dirt in the braided rug alone. Anyway, it was a good thing I cleaned because we had some special visitors today.

That would be the sixth, seventh and eighth generation descendants of the original owners of the cabin. Visiting all the way from Chautauqua, New York. I would have been awful embarrassed had I not cleaned.

They didn’t want to keep the snake skin as a souvenir. Go figure.

How wonderful that the descendants could visit!

I didn't realize how big the cabin is until I saw the people next to it. It has a second floor? And an attic?

Yes, it has a second floor but no attic, it is just open cathedral style. Very cool cabin, quite the homestead in its day.

Would love to see more pics of the inside. About hos many square feet is it ? I think it wants to belong to me over here in Illinois. I'll take on those snakes. Me and my big Great Pyrenees dog that it

Donna, you'd have to arm wrestle me for it. ;-)

It is 18' x 22'. I'll try to take more pics when I go back on Friday. The upstairs is DARK.
