Speak Softly And….

Last week, I learned that installation of the new roof at Bacon’s Castle had begun. Since I was in the neighborhood Saturday, I stopped by with plans to take some pics of the work in progress.

But, once I drove down the lane, I discovered that the work was being done on the back side of the house. Since it was cold and windy, and I didn’t have a good photo shot from the comfort of my car, I decided to just make a circle and leave via the other drive.

I spotted a couple of visitors walking across the property, and then saw this:


The couple saw me taking the picture of their pooch and smiled, so I stopped to chat. They had just finished a tour of the house. Of course, I shared a little of my family history at Bacon’s Castle with them. And I learned that this is”Browser”.  Browser was looking mighty proud.

And, obviously, he subscribes to the theory: “Go big or go home”.
