My Very Own Winston

      In 1922 Churchill wrote Clemmie, 
"If only we could get a little country home within our means and live there within our means, it would add great happiness and peace in our lives."
 That was Chartwell.
Churchill built various outbuildings and
 substantial brick walls around his property.

This is Fair Ground.

The wall doesn't quite wrap around the property,

and we'll never have tourists visiting, but . . .

it allows us to live within our means and,

as with the Churchills, it has added happiness and 

peace to our lives.
