Lucy and her story is the reason I started this post and I don’t want to pretty it up. After yesterday’s post, I would be a hypocrite if I did. But. But. “NorCal History” doesn’t say it my posts will always be about the settlement period, Lucy or the Indian Wars. This may seem like a no-brainer to everyone else, but for me it was a revelation.
I think the ghosts will be ok if I take a break every once in a while to talk about lighter things. Fun things. History related, of course.
I love old homes. I ogle old houses like others ogle movie stars or naked people. Seriously. I could get arrested for being peeping , what, Tammy, maybe? But instead of trying to see people, I am trying to see an old fireplace mantle or ornate window trim.
Houses have histories, just like people do. They tell stories, too. I look forward to sharing some of them here.
