The blue house has a rocking horse in the bay window. The curtains are off white, matching the trim. The door has a cut out, that Penny peeks through before she greets her guests. Penny bought the blue house when she first moved to Reading, for $24,000. She paid for half of it with her inheritance from Aunt Kendra, and the rest she paid off with a good mortgage. The rates were different in 1992. Penny decorated the blue house with white lights for the holidays, and a green wreath on the front door. The rocking horse had been carved by Penny’s father, an expert woodsmith.
