OK, I wanted to share with you the view from our front porch-well someday at least. When I talk about heading to the middle of no where all the time, this is what I mean. Some of the last undisturbed country in our great country is here. Unless you have been there, you seriously would not believe me.
But first, I want you so see Prince's mom in her favorite chair in her favorite spot in her home. The stove you see is the ONLY heat source this house (or her) has ever known. The large white box behind her is filled with chunks of coal and logs. Yes, I said coal. She was rather upset last year when we "modernized" the stove with the fan blower which is on the top of the pipe in the photo. Before that, if you wanted to get warm you better be standing in the VERY near area or it is downright nippy. But honey, stoke this baby up with coal and it is roasting! Everyone has tried to talk her into a pellet stove but NO WAY!!
Here is another view of the area from farther back. See those mountains in the distance? Gotta cross them on dirt road to get here. Yep!
