In Response to: A wonderful life

We lived in the Butler Tract from fall 1980 to spring 1982. We repainted the inside completely when we moved in because it was dingy and dirty. Our home was slated to be renovated, and they started working on it in fall 1981 by taking most of the siding off the house. But then it got cold, and they decided it was too cold to continue the work so they stopped construction for the winter, leaving our home open to the elements without any insulation. It was freezing all winter — every time the wind blew, the curtains moved. There was no bathtub, so we bathed our baby in the sink. Despite a few inconveniences, we had a wonderful time there.
