My cell phone has a glitch, but I can tell you the front door to my condo looks very similar to your without the nice décor you have.

As much as I have on file, my front door, well at least you can see the knocker. :D
Oh my, April!! As a nasty old man you bring back memories from the '60s and a record by, wasn't it, Rusty Warren. (How did this old mind ever dig that name up when I can't remember who I met yesterday!!) The record was a party record called "Knockers up". Be really careful who you show your "knockers" to!!!!:)

I'll try to take a shot of our front door and post it soon.

Grumpy.....back in the 60s, my wife and I went to Lake George, NY for a weekend. Rusty Warren was playing in the lounge of a bar we went to. I think it was called the Kon Tiki. I never laughed so hard in my life. She put on a hell of a show and was very talented.

Very nice. Love the bird bath.
Has a big chunk out of one side where it didn't survive a grandkid's sense of "let's see if this will tip over". Lucky he wasn't hurt as the top is extremely heavy. We've been in this home 18 years and brought the bird bath with us when we moved there. We've probably had it close to 25 years. Lots of generations of birds have used it for a "splash park".

What a lovely piece of history. Thanks for sharing,

Nothing fancy, but it's home.

A PM mentioned the bay window. It's a long story! We had a simply picture window for years. Probably 5 years ago, or so, I was cleaning winter growth out of the rock landscaping in front of the house. Got it all out in the grass and decided to mulch it with the lawn mower. "Stupid is as stupid does!" Yep! Evidently, I had a rock or two in with the grass clumps. The mower sent a rock dead center of the picture window. Don't think that didn't initiate some interesting "comments" from the wife!!!! We got some estimates and found we could replace the picture window with the bay window for very little dollars more. Wife loves it. Dog loves it even more!!! The dog spend hours upon hours laying on the window ledge sleeping or protecting us from rabbits and squirrels.

I did the same thing with a weed eater, I was a good 20' away....shattered my patio door into a zillion pieces and in order to match the other patio door cost me $400.

Nice home Grumpy.
