May 19, 1920

We found this inscription in the concrete beside our well. Was this the year that they got indoor plumbing? Beside the well is a small outbuilding with a trough, obviously the old pump house. In 1920 this house was thirty four years old. I know the man that built it was named Smith and that he was the local blacksmith. So, slowly the house reveals itself to us. bulbs are coming up through the grass in the shape of long gone flower borders. Daffadils, apparently, can not be stopped. Soon, I'm going to walk up the road to the old cemetery and see who I can find.
