Putting on a Good Face


The older homes in Speedway have been undergoing 
a revival in recent years. When I moved here in the late
1970's, the town was nice, comfy and had good schools but
many of the houses looked dowdy in their faded, 
dull vinyl or aluminum siding and chipped paint. 
Slowly they began to change,as though 
someone discovered "good bones" beneath 
the ill-fitting wardrobes. The place has become 
brighter, and the houses are beginning to show bright
individuality, even with welcoming trees.

Hee hee for the tree, Speedway. That porch looks so inviting!

The porch is inviting, Dive. I was sorely tempted to give it a try. It's only a block or so from the track. If you were to come over, we could go to the door, introduce ourselves and ask to "sit a while."

Why is some of the text in each new edition highlighted in white? I keep trying to find a reason for it in each blog, but I cannot. Is it perhaps some programming error that bleaches out the lilac background?

Hi, Alison. I've been wondering about that, too. It showed up just recently and I could not figure a way to resolve it. I didn't know whether it showed up on other screens, or just mine. Now I know. Thanks.
