Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

Greetings from Comander General Christopher James!


Christopher likes to play Army Guys with his cousins on the beach. So what better than to see a real fort and bunkers by the Portland Head Lighthouse! Rebecca, still feeling under the weather decided to sit in the car with Alexander and Dad while Griffie and I investigated the old forts and bunkers. They are reminders and remainders of our Civil War, but since Griffie doesn't know about the Civil War and it was too complicated to explain quickly I told him this too was commissioned by General George Washington as the Portland Head Lighthouse was... The bunkers look out over the Atlantic Ocean so this was, in his mind, to fight the Two If By Sea! (I'll correct him eventually!)


He is quite fierce looking dontcha think!



Awww, Mom.... I can't shoot you!
