Yes, Richyrich.
That is an architectural marvel, to say the least.
It also defies gravity in the top floor :lol:

Great design, Richy!

I have no trouble navigating those stairs. But oddly enough, the beer seems to leave my glass on the upper levels. :?

What's happening at the Mint House? This place sure needs a good dusting!

Are we having an Easter egg hunt this year?

You're right Ken,
the place has been abandoned by all the ghosts. Some of them have moved to an island called Cyprus, they tell me.
But anyway, we will start a spring cleaning session on April fools' day.
As for the Easter egg hunting, no dice; no eggs left in the chicken coop. Even the chickens are gone. There's not even some chicken feed left either, so what could one expect the poor birds to do.
What's worse, the Count may lose his property because of his tremendous budget deficit.He is being evicted right now.
No bank will loan him any money any more.
But, I hear he has his money stashed away somewhere in a Swiss bank; he's a pretty shrewd fellow this count.

Happy Easter!

The Mint House can be barely seen on the top left corner of the picture, on the hill :)
Only a few lights can be seen, of course. The place has been abandoned by the Count who has run away hiding somewhere
to avoid an arrest for his tremendously high debts. :(
