Many people still live in or near the house where they were born. The last house we lived in was a handsome house that we enjoyed for 35 years. Up until five or six years ago, we had every intention of making our residence there permanent. The children having left long ago, we had much more space than we needed and it became more and more of a challenge to keep it looking the way we wanted it to look. We gradually changed our minds and began to think how nice it would be to live on one floor instead of four. We made plans for sometime in the near future to look for that new home.
