Food For Thought

My house, built in 1971, was built for a family of six, including three lively boys who were fast accumulating piles of sports equipment, musical instruments and tools. Their little sister, having always been determined to keep up with her brothers, added a number of girl-things to her own collection of sports equipment, musical instruments and tools. They all rode horses, liked to hunt and fish, and acquired a variety of pets over the years, including, aside from horses; reptiles, rodents, felines, canines, fish, birds, crustaceans, and a few unidentified critters.
