Friday's Fotos....Come And Sit A Spell!

Home

I ran across this old home while looking at property on the Virginia side of Bristol. It seemed to cry out...just come and sit a spell!

I'm sure over the years as neighbors would travel by this once immaculate home you would hear those same words shouted out. People just seemed to visit more than they do now......

Maybe this is  a good example for us....if we don't get out there and visit our friends, family and clients we could end up all alone just like this great image of time gone by!

As a REALTOR® In the Bristol Tn Va area I try and capture as many as these fading images as I possible can. To me they are Real Estate that took a lot of patience, skill and time to build at some point long ago.
I guess I just like to celebrate their existence as long as I can.

It really does have that old comfortable look to it, although you might get some rain on your head at times.

In the end it is our relationships with people that matter.  I'm sure that building saw some pretty good times in its day

Rob, I could see you, Dale Baker from NH, and Michael Thornton from Nashville, pulled off to the side of the road, right there, on that spot to "Sit for a spell."

Nice photo! Have good day.

Hi Rob, Yes you are right again. See the front section of the home? They had to "add on" after they found out they were expecting triplets. LOL

Have a good one,
