If you're house is a cottage, I'll eat my hat.

Not really, since they cause certain death from indirect intestinal disturbances within close proximity.

But for real...when I think "cottage" I think of something tiny. Which, you know...is not how one might describe certain 'cottages' of certain peoples.

The yard is a family AND friend thing...

I remember numerous occasions where I was lucky enough to spend the night Friday and wake up to a long list for the outside on Saturday...

I loved those days...

Thanks Mom :)
