notice right away that we have no BED in the bedroom. I might explain that
this is a safety feature: you can't fall out of a bed that is already on the
floor. The truth is that we have not built the bed yet. We are too busy.
Old retired people are busy because
when they worked they knew they couldn't do much except work. Once they
don't work any more they think they can do anything and so they start trying
to do everything they want to do.
One of the first things they
realize is that they will DIE before they do even half the things they want
to do that they can AFFORD. This makes them frantic, so they run around
desperately trying to do all the things they think they MIGHT do before they
die as fast as possible. So they do them badly and have to do them over,
which makes them even busier than they were.
This bedroom makes ours
officially a two-bedroom house. In Clarke County a room is not a bedroom
unless it has a closet. It can have three BATHROOMS and two king-sized
four-poster beds but if all it has for storage space is armoires, bureaus
and chests of drawers, it is NOT a bedroom.
started out as a NO BEDROOM house. Just a screen porch in the woods with
a deck, a toilet, no kitchen and lots of tools, as you see below.
