John McGreevey’s House

A few weekends ago, the boy took me antique shopping in Santa Monica, just for fun.  While the store was filled with amazing things, we only ended up buying one little item, this strange painting:

 When we first saw it, we both agreed it was a bit spooky, it almost looks like a haunted house, but cool in a weird way.  Then we flipped it over and saw that it says it’s a painting of John McReavy’s house from 1889.  That’s when we decided to buy it…

You see, my grandfather’s name was John McGreevey, and there were lots of adaptations of the name McGreevey over here in America when people arrived at Elis Island, so this haunted house could possibly be the home of one of my distant long lost relatives….theoretically speaking.  That makes it even spookier, don’t you agree?
