Thank you to everyone and all!... More

This cottage is more than a mueseum to me , you see its the place where my mother was born and grandparents lived. Its the place where my parents held their wedding reception and where we spent many years celebrating family traditions of Christmas Lunches and even just lunch with cousins.The grassy sloped front lawn was often the place as...
