I always noticed that when a place changed hands, the new owner
fixed a lot of things the previous owner just lived with. I know that was the case with us.
We fixed a lot of things in order to make life easier.
The "to make life easier" part can be SO misleading........my experience has been it is so we have more time to do MORE work! And that is what makes life "easier", after all!
And happy for the folks who are getting established in 'new' places. There seems to be a big 'learning curve' to any change in work and life which can be fun and or educational.
We are currently going through our 60 years worth of photo's, AND some collected clear back to very early 1900's by our parents and grand parents. Computer (and the young people to run them!!!) sure makes that easier and can improve quality of photo's, too. We are now the 'oldest generation' not only on our ranch, and in our family, but also in our community. Not sure why that realization has come as such a shock, but we still are shaking our heads over it.
