Speaking Of Fires

Here is another old sketch from prior to the schoolhouse sketch.  I am guessing this was drawn in 1988 when I was living in the neighborhood and walking past this house every day.  It had the most wonderful yard and picket fence.  The fence is still there, the house burnt to the ground.
Ironically, this house was owned by a member of my graduating class (Licking Valley Class of 1976).  I noticed Saturday, that the property is for sale.  The big tree must have been destroyed by the fire, which my maintanance man says was an electrical fire, but the rest of the yard is still in tact.  I was very sad when I drove by and discovered this house was no longer there.
