#703 It Happened in August 1996

It's been 20 years since we first laid eyes on our favorite house in Aurora, MO.

On August 2, 1996, we are living in Kansas City and visiting family in southwest Missouri.  Kathy and Mark are moving to Texas so we're all getting together to celebrate their move - either that or to try to talk them into staying in Missouri!    
During the weekend, the family meets for a meal in Aurora (can't remember if big hats were worn) and accidentally, serendipitously, we drive down College Street and discover the house. 

Our first photos were taken in 1996 when the house was owned by the Duncans and the grounds were so beautiful and well maintained.   


We continue to drive by (or stalk, if you must) the house for the next 13 years whenever we're in the neighborhood until we eventually learn it is for sale - which is yet another story of serendipitous good fortune.

Yours in serendipity,
Mary
