Thinking About Color And Posterity

Posted Thursday, Nov 03rd, 2011 at 4:56pm

Things are coming along great at 4321 Reedway. That's right! We have a new address for the new house! Fine number at that. I am looking for a name to the house. Maybe I should call it Blast Off House? Here are some of the colors I am considering. It will have three colors - a dark shade on the bottom and light on the top. With white or cream trim.
