old home. here is something eerie, yet quaint, about the artifacts and photos. I recognize some 80's stuff back from my childhood.
Emil and Alma were able to buy the home "on a handshake" during WWII. They had bought the property to be close to Alma's sister, and ended up turning the house into a successful farming and ranching operation. Their children thrived in the small town and, while their family grew, so did the actual home.
Now, where coloring-book pages still decorate the open refrigerator, life has largely moved on. While family has visited (and occasionally spent the night, ages ago) in the home, Blincoe notes that much of the items left in the home were just as Emil and Alma left them before they died in 1983 and 1987, respectively.
