This is the only mansion I've ever been in: Muckross House near Killarney in Ireland. It was very impressive and I know that I would certainly be very well-muscled if I had to go up and down stairs and through the miles of corridors each and every day. The servants would be even more trim. As we looked and listened on the tour, I wondered how they kept the food hot as it was carried for what seemed like miles from the kitchens to the dining room.
Someone long ago built this to live in with his family. Perhaps it was a mansion to them.
Even though it could get a little breezy and damp, I'm drawn to the squash mansion with its view of the daisies. How about you?
