We were taking this little sweetheart home this afternoon.....
...when we drove past a new development just going up and
I said to Dennis, "I can't believe what I just saw....
those new homes look like something from the 1950s!"
So after we returned sweet Violet to her Mom...
(She was clapping btw as she saw where we had stopped our car!
She LOVES her Mom.)....
We went right back to take a look.
Sure enough, these houses look like something I grew up in.
1950s style homes are not so unusual,
But these are new homes just being built.
How many decades ago has it been that houses were built
with unattached garages?
I think I could go for a garage not attached.
Less exhaust from our cars would get inside.
But I wouldn't like walking from the garage
to my house, after dark.
The windows are the older style too.
So I wonder, what's up with this?
I couldn't even find out who the builder is
because there were no signs up yet.
See the resemblance to my childhood home?
The same looking pillars.
Same shaped windows.
Long rectangular porch.
Wait a minute.
I just realized I got it all wrong.
I looked up the stats just now on my childhood home (above)
and it was built in 1925!
I guessed I just thought I grew up in a 1950s house
since it was the 1950s-60s.
So this means,
those new homes we saw today, are from the 1920s.
The plot thickens...
