Friday Night Musings

Maybe I was just born a century too late (though flying the NA-265 was a blast) but I'm glad to live in a hundred-year-old home surrounded by things older than me, with a history that will quietly whisper to me as I sit in low light with a single malt scotch.

Goodnight all.  Enjoy your Friday evening.

  1. Hey Brigid;

    There is something cool about being with pieces of history, it connects us with our past and there is a timelessness to that.

  2. Still enjoying your musings. This one left me in a very mellow, satisfied mood. Sometimes it's nice to just sit back and say " Ah..... "

  3. There's a sense of peace and relative quiet which comes with such things.

  4. Getting ready to move and when we look for houses, I refuse to buy newer homes. The older ones may need some TLC but they're always a bit more . . . solid. And yes, I can feel that history as well. One of my childhood homes is now about 140 years old and that history oozed throughout the place.

  5. My parents' house is mostly populated with things made in the 19th century. I find it very permanent and reassuring.

  6. Any time I see someone say that I think...so you wanted to live in a time without modern plumbing, Toilet paper and de-oderant? Not to mention modern surgical and medical practices :D I need glasses (or lasik) to be able to see let alone contemplating doing without TP :D Happy New Year B, that is a lovely photo.

    1. Our toilet downstairs is actually labeled 1915. I'm not saying I want to live in the scientific/medical modes of that time but I love the architecture.

    2. I was not thinking of you in particular about that one...but it brought to mind of other people who do not consider the rammifications of getting their wish :D the architecture can be awesome thou....though how one would get a king sized bed up 4 flights of very narrow stairs makes me shudder :D

  7. The house I was brought home to when I was born in '54 was built in the late 1800's and had (still has?) Mahogany trim and ceiling high pocket doors and trim between the front room and the living room. Any time I'm in that kind of building I feel like it should be 'home'. I understand what you are saying.

  8. Respect and honour.

    There are no substitutes.

  9. history got me in trouble - my wife was complaining that I only like old things - cars, guns etc....

    I told her to be grateful, because that's why I keep her around!

    Went over real bad... :)
