Rockwell Home

Found on a meandering motorcycle ride in Northern Colorado is a house that looks like a Norman Rockwell painting. This beauty I turned around for. It is all at once whimsical and patriotic, and has a timeless Americana feel to it. Lemonade and hot dogs anyone?

University Area

My college town is divided into several neighborhoods but the streets closest to the university are very wide and lined with old trees that give a feel of small town America from another era. Also, the homes tend to be quite unique with no two being alike. On summer mornings my wife and I like to ride our scooters up and down these streets which are lazy and slow. Here are a few homes in this area of town.These homes are well kept and lovely….

Many of them have a 1940’s Hollywood feel to them….

Note the wide tree lined street where these homes have room to breathe….

It never really gets old cruising slowly while saying good morning to those we might see…

Have you noticed how each home looks nothing like the last. No tract housing here…

No dogs chasing us, and very few people outside this early. Our scooters are very quiet…

We usually go for a fresh apple fritter and a hot cup of coffee before heading home. Life is good, and enjoyed all the more when we go slow and see the things around us.

When I came upon this house, in a very small town, I thought for a moment that I found a time portal and it was now in 1958. As you can tell, one of the front windows has been covered, giving it an unbalanced feel. Still, there is something unique and wonderful about this home.
