    Would you have gone in if “little bit” was not with you?

      Hmmm… Good question. I’d like to say yes, but there’s that whole trespassing and entering someone else’s property thing. 😊😊 That seems to be a big issue nowadays. Best to daydream about such things instead.

    Did you at least take a peek inside? I would have been so curious what the woodwork looked like etc. And then I would wonder who had lived there and how they lived their lives.

      No peeks. But, like you, I found myself wondering who lived life there. Across the driveway there was an OLD cellar, and behind that a barn. It was a pretty neat place. I’d say farmers nearby probably own the land it’s on. I love how the oak tree shadow almost swallows the front by the covered up window. Maybe once upon a time there was a tire swing in that tree. :)

      What?? I about fainted when I saw your name!! Hello and welcome! 😊😊

      Thank you so much for commenting. I bet it does have many stories. Weddings and babies, Sunday dinners after church, it’s fun to think about the history of houses that now sit alone. On one hand, seeing them makes me sad. Yet on the other hand, maybe some houses held lives for many years and are happy to “retire.”

      Truly, thanks again! It’s GREAT seeing you here!

    Love your detour!
    Even tho it’s tempting sometimes to go exploring, I always stay off of someone elses property. Even if it’s not posted “no trespassing” Living out in the country, I know I wouldn’t want someone just wondering thru our place.

      Thanks! It was a beautiful ride. The terrain changed so much. First it was rolling farmland, then it changed to heavily wooded with the straightest roads, then quickly back to farmland. I agree. I admire from my truck. :)

    Jessica, it does make you wonder – being the cautious kind I think I’d step away…and let my imagination take over as to this.

      We see houses like this all over the place here. There’s lots of history of homesteaders and families dating back many years in this area. It’s pretty neat to see where life was lived. :)
