    The Old House aat the End of the Road

    The Old House at the End of the Road If it’s possible to love a house like a person, Then the Lord knows I love this old house. It’s a place that reminds me of family, And the things in life that really mean the most. It’s a place I return to when I’m lonely. . . . . . Or it seems I’ve lost my way. A place where I always feel welcome, As I sit down and think for a while. This old house is more than boards and nails Because it tells me of our past . . . As I walk through it, I’m reminded that The special people in our lives never last. Although they’re gone, I will remember How they still live on inside of me. Because this old house reminds me of who I am, And everything I ever want to be . . . The Old House . . . at the end of the road. To learn more, visit

As always, Enjoy! Curt

Don’t lose your investment.” Don’t give up on those leaning trees. I’ve worked with teenagers all of my life. I’ve seen my share of “Leaning Teens.” They were bent due to a whole host of reasons. Don’t give up on those leaning teens. Over time, they will grow tall and straight.
