Long ago, a little ceramic lighted house was received as a Christmas gift from The Financier. Each year another house was added. Sometimes others added to the collection. Various accessories joined the houses. Finally it was decided that there were enough and no more joined the happy village. These houses have been boxed up for nine years, the seal of moving tape still intact. When the garage was built, a cupboard over twenty feet long was constructed for storage. The pitch of the wall is steep and this was unusable living space, but the top makes a perfect showcase for the houses. Plenty of electrical receptacles and a couple of harnesses of lights on one cord allow for the houses to shine brightly in the darkness. After over ten years of traveling to the homes of family for Christmas, this year, they are traveling here. It seems time for the houses to greet them.

Merry Christmas to all, peace on earth and goodwill towards men and women.
The names were added to the photos, but they seem unreadable, so the names have been added below each image.
