Like Royalty

I don't know how my in-laws did it. Somehow, coming from extremely modest means, they have ended up in glorious mansions. We are visiting Doug's aunt and uncle in Detroit in their home, built in 1905 by the first mass producer of electric cars in America. Doug's mom lives in a beautiful former plantation home built in 1880. Like us and our future home in Florida, they scrimped and saved to purchase their residences during difficult times. And now they live like royalty. Except without the money or the strange relatives.
