Welcome to That Old House

Thank you for finding That Old House amidst the chaos of the Internet.
This blog named itself. When I tell local people where we live, they almost always say, "Oh! You live in that old house!"
We do, and I'm glad you've come to visit -- Cass

Back To The Beach House!

Guess what?
Our beach house is getting new carpet . . . on Wednesday, as in today.

So, leaving Howard behind in New Jersey to hold down the fort, Doggy Dion and I have packed our tents once again, slung them into my mini-van, and we're on our way back out to eastern Long Island.

Oh poor, poor us.  We'll have to deal with this:
Such a hardship, to tolerate these views from the windows and decks!
 See you Sunday, which is when I think I'll be getting home;
I hope to have loads of terrific "after" pictures to show you.

Meanwhile, I hope for a few more still, magical mornings on the inlet, like this one from last week:
Just like a mirror, that water.
That's lovely in the morning.
When it gets that still on a summer evening, watch out -- gnats!

That will be my Outdoor for the next few days.

Have a great week, my friends; I will see you when I return,
loaded with pictures of our continuing beach house renewal.  -- Cass
