I do not know why it has been so important to me to restore the old house - maybe I have a false sense of loyalty to the house to David... maybe a false sense of loyalty to its history being 114+ years old the families that held it the Barnhiel's, Hawk's, Hawkin's... I know probably most of the people do not support me in my efforts which some have proven that to me already and think I am crazy but I have to try even if I fail at it maybe it is just not meant to be and I am wasting my money, time and effort...

Here is information about the local - lake area.

Here is the history of the house. In 1910 Ezra and his first wife Mary were living in Culver and the house remained into the Hawkins name until 1944.

Trying to sell some things on ebay as I can that no longer need that I collected in years past even things David saved and bought me they are meaningless if I can't save the house - but dealing with our bad economic times and people telling my they are not worth anything. Trinkets do not pay the bills nor fix a house up -- anything I will be selling is at Maxinkuckee Gal on Ebay;

I guess I am crazy, and foolish for dreaming the impossible dream....MY HOUSE, David's House ...to be able use it again as a home...to move back into it...will it ever happen will I ever live in it again? I really wonder... David has been gone 24 years now (23 Aug. 1990) and it seems unbelieveable! I have turned 62 and gained some benfits and its helping out some every penny I can spare is going toward the old house...

Dear Lord - Give me the peace and understanding that I need, to accept what is to come, whatever it maybe; you above all are in control of what has happened, what will happen and what is to be. Forgive me for my doubts; my fears and my selfishness if wanting to save this house.
