GENERAL PRINCIPLES:

Most of the above rules are intended for extended-stay adults.  Some rules may be amended for adults who come for short visits, but such amendments will come at the sole discretion of Alice Haddow.
    

New rules for AHHG may be added without notice at the sole discretion of Alice Haddow.  Only Alice Haddow has stewardship for creating such additions.  Adults who stay at AHHG may submit suggestions, but Alice Haddow has full veto power over any such suggestions.
    

Our cleaning lady once said to me, “You are the only person in this house who cares about order.”  If she ever visits AHHG, she will be amazed at the change.
    

THE BOTTOM LINE:  IF YOU ARE WILLING TO COURTEOUSLY TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND YOUR THINGS AND CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF AND FUNCTION AS A SELF-MOTIVATED PART OF A TEAM (maybe even a team leader), YOU ARE ENTITLED TO AN INDEFINITELY HAPPY AND INEXPENSIVE STAY AT POPPY’S PLACE.  
    

A willingness to follow this general principle means you do not have to memorize the above rules because you will naturally follow them based on one general principle of basic adult courtesy.  The specific rules have been put into print based on my experience with certain members of this family to whom general principles seem to mean nothing.  If you’re not one of these people, things should go very smoothly.  If you are one of those people, then you can’t defend yourself by saying you’ve never been told.  Because you have.  (And please don’t take offense at my sentence fragment.  I like it.)
    

Sent with hugs and kisses to all from your one and only Momma H.
