what a very nice writeup you had there. maybe she'll get the innkeeping bug and buy your place when you're ready to sell.

Thanks, Trax. No such luck. She is older than I am and lives in Oregon. Lovely couple who were here to visit the family town as her husband is a descendent of the founder of my city.

Thank you, Jay. Thank you JBJ for sending me the link. I have spent the morning sending it to just about everyone in my address book!!
The reporter was a sweetheart. We only went up to clean her room when we did because it was her room (accessible) and I knew she needed to get back. The guests were here for a funeral and did not leave right after breakfast - I do not eat until the guests leave and I do not usually start cleaning until they leave for the day..
Congrats. You are a great role model for us all

DUH!!! Unfortunately she is too young. She needs to make a living and this 3 guestrooms will not do that. This would be a great place for someone who is a writer though - enough income to get by if you get a few royalties to help and enough tax dections to cover the costs of the house. Plenty of writing time........

Thank you, All, for your kind words.
And after church today, one of the classmates of the family that was here when the reporter was came up to me and told me her friend had said their stay here was so wonderful and that they were booking in for their family reunion later this summer. That she was to tell me how much they enjoyed staying here. and that she wants to come see the place.
If that word can get passed to the other ex-patriots, I may get better occupancy from that too - unless they are too old to go up the stairs any longer, and that is happening unfortunately.
