The neighbor’s gate
Just across the street is a very small house with a very small white gate.
I should explain that we live in old-town Marblehead, MA and our street is really a one-way narrow lane. There is just enough room for one car to drive...almost like a single driveway. There are no sidewalks.
The little house across the street was once kitchen house for the General Glover house on the street just behind it. It was built in 1762. Kitchen houses were built to protect the main house from fires. Of course, this little house has had quite a bit of work done to it since then and it is now the small house next door. And it happens to have quite a charming little gate with it’s sweet green wreath and a bit of snow falling.
We had my step-son Joey with us over the weekend and got up to visit with my grandchildren as well.
He was teaching Verne some skateboarding tricks.
Both of them have grown so much I can hardly believe it!
