Another Aladdin Home in Alpha

Another Aladdin Home in Alpha

Long ago, back in 2016, I did a blog post in here about several Aladdin and Sears Homes in Alpha. I went back and reread it just now, and honestly, it was painful to read. I was still learning about how to use this website, and I think I must have used all my energies […]

Ten Aladdin Homes in Kenton

There is no reason for me to tell you my story in order, is there? This could be like one of those confusing movies where they jump around in time and you have trouble keeping up. Then it all comes together in the end. Well…….ha! Who knows when my story will end. And every one […]

Some “Sears Houses” in Lima

Some “Sears Houses” in Lima

Summer is over. And as I look back on my own little blog here, I see that I never posted about any of the Sears Houses I saw over the Summer. Yes, I did the mini meet up in early June with Marie and Nigel. But hey! That was still Spring. Now, so much time […]

A mini Meet up (visiting old finds with new friends)

A mini Meet up (visiting old finds with new friends)

Before the Pandemic, I would go out and about and hunt up Sears Houses. Then….. I would share my day with you all here in this little blog. Yeah……..in the before times……. Since I didn’t go out and about much during the pandemic, I kind of forgot ( OK ignored ) my blog! Occasionally I […]

6 New Houses in Butler County

Occasionally when I find a “new” Sears House in the Cincinnati area, and share the information with my little research group on Facebook, Andrew will jokingly comment “I think they are still building them down there”. Ha! I think he might be right! It seems like no matter how many times somebody goes through old […]

I never seem to have my “real” camera with me when I need it. I mean, you would think I would know better by now, since I live in Ohio, and kit houses are pretty much everywhere, that there is a chance I will spot one anytime I go anywhere nearby. Not that my “real” […]

I was feeling as blue as the sky today.  And with the weather forecast for next week saying Ohio might be getting our first dose of Winter snow, we decided to go for a ride while the sun was shining. I haven’t done a lot of Sears House hunting this year.  So many things to […]

A Quick Trip to Greendale, Indiana

A Quick Trip to Greendale, Indiana

This past week, I took myself on a little day trip to Dearborn County, Indiana. It wasn’t all that much fun, actually, since I went by myself, and I hate driving on the Interstate. It was my first trip out to do some mortgage record research since the start of this COVID thing. I called […]

Have I Told You About Winnie?

Have I Told You About Winnie?

OK, I will answer my own question. No, I’m sure I haven’t told you about Winnie. I meant to, last year, but I kept getting side tracked with leads on houses, day trips, meet ups with other researchers, and work……..sigh…….. Then I forgot all about it. Telling you, I mean. I haven’t forgotten about Winnie. […]

You Deserve a Donut

You Deserve a Donut

Hubby and I had a jam packed Summer planned.  Night after night of entertainment at the Springfield Arts Festival, several concerts at the Rose Music Center, Dayton Dragons games, Studebaker Car Club events, Food Truck Rallies, and as always, I was hoping for a few day trips out and about in Ohio hunting down Sears […]
