I know what you mean. They have an infectious laugh and you can't help it. All of a sudden you find yourself laughing with them.
Those kinds of videos are like the recent one of the woman with the Chewbacca mask - you can't help but smile at seeing someone so happy, and laugh along with them!
Maybe, but you eventually worked something out with the table. And I remember that 'heart wood' thing that seemed to go over so well. And every year people come looking for those Christmas wreaths too. Don't sell yourself short.
But there are more of my ideas that don't turn out than there are that do!
Nifty! But why is an old piece of crate in the rafters over the dining room? Was someone a fan of river salmon? Was it smelly and they thought it a joke to leave it over the place where people would have meals? Or maybe it was potentially a shim to hold something in place and over the years the house settled and the piece fell out. At 3 AM. Then, someone was scared half to death because they heard a noise and they were in the house alone - and the next morning they spent hours talking to neighbors who finally had a priest come over and do an exorcism which was obviously successful because the mysterious noise never came back! All this occurred in 1890 - the year the US Census burnt up because it really was a spook and as revenge for being kicked out of the house he drank the last of the 99 bottles of beer in the wall and then destroyed the evidence of anyone ever living in the house by burning the census. Or maybe not.
Interesting old house find for the week: ... dining room ... old board in the rafters ... It's a piece of an old crate that says "Columbia River Salmon. J.G. Megler Packing Co." It's dated 1883.
