Frankly, a 40 something, non-writer, average cook, non-professional of anything, living in the beautiful southwestern part of Georgia. I'll requote Erasmus, “It's when I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I still go to the parents house for food.” My thoughts and pictures. Hummm, where do we go?

as 'The Cottage', Thomas Morrison Carnegie received a simple cottage
house from his mother Lucy Carnegie upon his marriage to Virginia
Beggs. The home site was built in the Dungeness compound about 300
yards west of the Dungeness mansion on the western side of the
island close to the shore of Cumberland Sound. The rear of the house
was built facing the Cumberland Sound. The front of the house had a
commanding view of the mansion Dungeness and of the Pergola. In 1948,
the home burned to the ground.
