Making a Mudroom

Seven-year-old Kenny Lane poked his tongue in a pop bottle-- and got it stuck. Happily sucking on soda one minute, he was miserably tugging to free his tongue the next. At the emergency room, a grandfatherly doctor wrapped the bottle in a towel, broke its bottom with a hammer, and released Kenny from the suction's grip (and his parents from their mortification). Luckily, the episode left no permanent damage-- unless you consider the years of razzing Kenny will endure from his brothers.

Family rooms ... where memories are made

A room that close to your heart needn't be made of mere boards and bricks; it can also take shape from things that already have strong family connections, or things that simply say "home" the way your family likes to express it.
