Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West, 1409 12th Street, Key West, Florida. Longtime readers of my blog know I am a nut for old photos of our little town.

I remember that time before my sister passed away nearly twenty years ago when she told me I was brat as a child. I was ticked off and disagreed.

It was Good Friday 1957.  I was ten years old. I lived with my mother, dad, and big brother in a two bedroom house in one of the first Denver suburbs just west of the Denver County line. My dad came home from work. I remember it was dark. He had a box with two Easter presets for me.  I approached...

Now that I have your attention, let me tell you how I host Open Houses. First, I don't ask anybody to give me their names or contact information.  I hate that. I do give guests an information sheet and let them take themselves on a self-guided tour. If a person asks a question, I will answer it. ...
