The House of The Seven Gables

I keep saying 2008 has to be better than '07. Really - it's gotta be. Well, the first 1/12th of the year is a week from ending & we've already had our share of "stuff" with my wife being so sick. She's better now, thankfully, so maybe we can start the new year over. Now I'm not superstitious (other than during the days when I coached HS baseball) but, I'm startin' to wonder. Our house was built in 2003 and we bought it in mid 2005. The original owners were very particular & did a great job with their planning & customized everything just about the way we would have. The original middle-aged owner passed away suddenly late in '04 & we bought the home from his wife (the day she put it on the market). Settlement was a happy/sad kind of experience with that history in mind. So tonight I'm walking from my mailbox at the end of the driveway, the moon is really bright, & I'm looking at the house &, for reasons unknown, started counting the gables. I even walked around to the back to complete the count. Yep, we've got 7 gables. Sheesh.......
