Mom and dad have lived in Northford for over 30 years! They moved to this town when mom was 9 months pregnant with my sister, Missy, so this store has been a part of our lives for many years and now it's gone - forever gone!
The taller portion of the building that you can see in the back was built 138 years ago and when mom and dad first moved to town, the addition in the front hadn't been built yet and you actually shopped in the old portion of the store and walked on wooden floors! It was like an old time general store and it was so awesome!
So a part of Northford's history has also been destroyed and this is so sad! The owner says that the store will be rebuilt but it can never be the same - you can't replace history! The cause of the fire hasn't been determined yet. The fire marshall is still hard at work on the case!
On a happier note~
Dad and his buddies left on a 4 day mini-vacation this morning and we're hoping that mom has lots of fun adventures planned for us! You already know that mom eats stoopid stuff when dad is away so we're hoping that she will be preparing all sorts of junk food meals and sharing with us bigtime!
We're in luck tonight! Guess what's for dinner?
Awesome dinner, mom! Wonder what's for dinner tomorrow?!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
