Eric and Barb Pinion joke around while setting up for a yard sale outside their Maple Park home. It's the home Barb grew up in and they bought it after her mother passed away. "I couldn't see anyone else living here," she said. Eric called it their Love Nest. The Pinions have been married for 48 years. During our short visit, I could see the love they have for each other and their positive attitude was infectious. "Life is what you make it," said Eric. "You can be happy, or you can be a grump. I'd rather be happy."
