My mills?

They’re ours, in trust.

Built with an eye for eternity.

It’s a lot of responsibility.

Enjoy your peace and quiet. It won’t last.

Remember, if you can’t do it slow, you can’t do it fast.

Your old mills are of higher quality than anything that’s going up today.

I hope you appreciate that.

Yes, keep ’em dripping. Frozen pipes are a pain to deal with.

I look at all of this and start to get sentimental.

And then I go outside to scrape off the car or shovel the walk in front of the store.

It’s not supposed to get above zero for the next week.

Manny says to keep the faucets dripping.

Just in case.

This is the loneliest time of the year.

Well, here we are

I live in an old red house with an old red barn in an old milltown in New England. The house and barn are crammed with old books, and I, too, am getting old. This story’s a souvenir of my youth.

Still, I love the thought of living in a mill tower.

The clock tower of the Ayer Mill in Lawrence, Massachusetts, is much grander than anything in Bill's project. In fact, I think it's the most impressive mill tower in New England. Just imagine living there, though ... assuming no bells toll the hour.
