"BACK in the DAY...."

This week Larry and I are traveling on Rotary business.  And, although we're not on our motorcycle, it's been beautiful to drive through the Arkansas River Valley, especially since we rode the Arkansas River through 3 states recently! I loved this old "dog-trot" house (an open passageway between two sides of a house) - and I could only imagine how grand it probably was in its time.

TFS never heard of that expression for a house before "dog trot" .

It meant that a dog could run through the middle of the entire house without going inside!

I'm sure it must have been warm and cosy in its day but I think there would be a few draughts now!

The stories of the building would be great to hear....but all secrets will stay hidden in those walls.....
