Screens

We have lived in this particular house for about 16 years now.
The man we bought it from lived here more than 50 years.
He left a lot of stuff. We are still finding new things. Well, old things.

We just found a screen for the back door.
What a joy for those hot days to get a breeze going.

You can tell what the weather is normally like here by the fact that we did not buy a different back door, with a screen, years ago. The doors are old – so replacement parts are not always readily available.

The screen was in the back corner of the garage, wrapped in brown paper.
I wonder what other nuggets exist in the recesses of the house.
Maybe I should consider it a treasure hunt rather than a house cleaning.
