Lelly asked, "if i came to visit you next week, how would i know which doorbell to ring? do you have a formal entrance? should i come to the front door? or do you prefer your guests to come around back? (would you be surprised if i came in through the garage?!?)
Why, hello there friend!
As my grandmother used to say, "If I'da known you were comin' I'da baked a cake." But I've got fresh coffee ready. Come on in...
I heard you ring the bell, then I heard our dog Sadie bark her fur off, so I knew somebody had come for a visit. Don't worry, Sadie is beyond friendly. Nah, you don't have to take your shoes off. With two cats, one dog, one four year old and one husband, what's the point?
Next time you visit, just come to the back door, K? We're all friends here. Oh, yeah, you can ring the cowbell back there. That will make Sadie bark too. She is our third doorbell, and is louder than all of them. We love her though.
This old cowbell hangs beside our back door. It's special because it belonged to my grandparents and used to hang beside their back door. My grandfather made the post it hangs on from a tree branch. Isn't that funny? I love to hear it clang-ity-clang!
