Class of 1961

Our house on Honeysuckle Lane holds many fond memories. We moved there in the summer of 1952 after renting a house on Cornflower Road for a year. By the time we moved to Honeysuckle the house had already been altered a bit. The second bedroom wall had been removed to make a large living/dining room area. The attic had a large finished bedroom and a small partially finished one. My sister and I shared the large bedroom and my brother had the smaller one. The house was cozy and bright, at least compared to our home in Everett, Massachusetts.

Outside I remember the forsythia bushes and the trees along the road. The yards were all connected, which made our play space seem large and open. The walk to the front door was just flagstones set in the lawn. Although originally gray, we eventually painted our house a blue-gray and the shutters pink. It seemed a bold choice to me but I loved it.

I especially enjoyed that everything was so convenient to our home and we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. If the weather was good we were usually outdoors. When I look back the thing that strikes me most is a sense of freedom.

In the summer of 1958 we moved, this time to Haymaker Lane. One of the main reasons was space. I was going into 10th grade and my sister into 4th and I really wanted my own room. Our new home was beautiful and much larger, but I will always remember the Honeysuckle house with great fondness.

Their step by step guide was something that could definitely be implemented, BUT, some of their methods are not for the
faint hearted. If you focus on value creation and promotion, and take action, it will only be
a matter of time once you become successful at your online business and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Must be a business that benefits me in the long term.
