For many years we had a country house in New Hampshire, surrounded by woods. Recently, to be closer to kids and grandkids, we bought this one, in Maine, which sits on top of a windy hill and looks out over mountains and lakes. It's very different. But still we have the same wild life: deer and birds and foxes - and recently a wild turkey practically looking in our windows! And, too, this house is an old one, built in 1768 before the United States existed. We've enjoyed patching it up and making it come back to life. Soon the little grandsons will be riding sleds down that long hill.
