The Mackley family holds the record for the family that lived in our house the longest (of course we're hoping to steal the record from them!) They were here from 1972 until 2000, and Sandy and Ed recently paid us a visit! I learned that they bought the house in disarray, and fell in love with it despite it's condition, much like we did, and immediately started working on it. It's funny that all of the things we are ripping out now for our remodeling projects are all the things they did in the 70's. Sandy did spot that her green mini blinds are still hanging up in the bathroom, and I learned recently that we swing every day on the porch swing they put up almost 40 years ago.
