I was born in the northeast and did not move to the southeast until I was about 8 years old, then i am the youngest child of six siblingsâ€¦ The two of us lived in a large house up north, and all of us had not only a large house with more than four living rooms, but all of us also had a swimming pool and all of us were located on a hockey course; My mom and Mom bought the house extra cheap because it had sat vacant for years and had been ransacked and needed a ton of work, however by the time I came along, the house was appealing.
One thing all of us did not have, though, was air conditioner, but you would guess with a house appreciate that, there would be cooling system, but there was not.
It was not unusual, either, then no houses that I knew of had air conditioner. In fact, I never even knew that because I was just a kid, and air conditioner was not something that I even knew about. It just wasn’t necessary or common up there, everyone did have a oil furnace, though. A oil furnace was a necessity. I can remember drying our wet mittens on the radiator when I came in from playing in the snow. I’m sure that is not safe, but all of us were a braver lot back then. Anyway, the house easily has cooling system now, although I never knew what it was until all of us moved to the south after our Mom died and our mom could not afford to keep the house, however fuel oil heating systems were actually fancy, and it was too much for her.
