Pop's House

I know I have mentioned before how much I love to hang out at my dad's house.  I mean, not nearly as much as he does, because he could sit on that porch right there, 24/7!!  No lie!
This is Crepe murder!!!
Anyway, dad has now added cedar siding inside the porch, along with pen and ink wildlife pictures.  He has a full set of furniture on the deck and a flat screen TV.  I told him next time I come back he will have probably moved his bed out there as well.
He loves his house.  And so do I.  It's peaceful.  Check out this mulberry "bush".
I have to admit, I would have NEVER known those were mulberries, and would have NEVER called it a "bush"!!  Looks waaaay more like a tree to me!
See those little buds of fruit peeking through there?!
I was pretty amazed.  That's easy for me when it comes to things in nature.
And then the creme de la creme!!  Pops rode the girls in the golf cart!  Yessssss...
I spent that time digging up old four o'clocks and pilfering through his junky storage room for cool old vintage signage from his sign making days.
Good times!

Oooh very peaceful! I could definitely spend all day on a swing relaxing...makes me think of my grandmother'ssnack porch. I remember the very first time I saw a four o'clock... I was about 13 years old visiting my cousins grandmother in Mississippi! ... Your post brought back some memories ;)
I love all of the memories your family is making with Ellie and Gabbi, what a treasure!
Y'all have a good weekend!
