To the home of
Ron and Scarlett Barnes
Welcome to the Barnes Motel. This is our guest room. We have a pretty steady flow of traffic between the children,my mother and friends visiting from out of town. This room is one of the reasons we bought this house. After Scarlett's father died, her mother came to live with us for four years until she passed away. This room is next to the kitchen so if a guest gets hungry in the middle of the night, they can just walk out the door and find the refrigerator immediately to their right.

Our home is a classic "mother-in-law" plan. This room sits next to the kitchen at the far end of the house. The other three bedrooms are at the other end of the house. So a guest can come and go as they please, stay up as late as they want and never bother anybody. We jokingly refer to it as the "roach motel" because once people check in, they never want to check out. One of my drummers asked if he could stay with us for a couple of weeks when he broke up with his girlfriend. He left three months later. Maybe our home is TOO comfortable.
