The Cozy Cabin at the Lake

Toby’s Dad bought a new lease at the lake. He still owns the other lake property but he’s selling it. The new property has an old 70’s mobile home on it and man-oh-man, is it cozy. Cozy, like stepping right back into 1979. Everything from the funky gold clock to the garage sale sofas to the outdoor barbeque that looks like the back end of an orange Pinto (car).. it’s all so old and quirky it’s almost too cool to tear down. Which is too bad too because the whole thing is a fire trap and Toby’s Dad despises it. He can’t wait to tear it down and build a stick cabin from scratch. Everyone is excited about a new cabin that sleeps twenty-eight or something like that… but in the meantime, the old 70’s cabin is a great getaway for an after-thanksgiving get-together. It’s a great getaway from 2006 too if you’re hankering for a bit of the past. I wish I would have taken more pictures. The wallpaper alone was worth a blog post.
