If You Would Not Fail...

More answers for the ongoing question:
What would you do with your life
if you knew you would not fail?

From Timothy;
one of the two instructors
and owners
at Studio Escalier:

Stop sleeping Monday thru FRIDAY,
so I could paint all day, and teach all night.
Then, ask my French bank for 35 million dollars,
to buy and renovate every crusty building
in my town to my standards,
just as a weekend project
(including the old chateau.)
Lastly, elect a suitable friend as mayor,
who'd permanently restore the name of my town
back to Argenton-Chateau,
and build me a train link
from Saumur to HERE to Bressuire!

Open Door Policy

Our house was built in 1929,
and John & I are the second owners,
buying this little slice of heaven in 1990.
The previous owner was a mailman in our city,
and we believe the home was built
utilizing mail-order house plans.

Our Craftsman/bungalow style home offers many special touches;
a built-in desk and covered bookcase on one side of the fireplace,
and a glass-fronted bookcase on the other, unusual light fixtures,
sparkly glass doorknobs, and warm, golden wood floors.

Most of the plaster walls had a single layer
of what may be 1930's wallpaper,
and much of the woodwork is in original condition.
We have an open-door policy,
so stop by some time and say hello!
