Old House

This house was hardly visible from the sidewalk a couple of years ago. I used to walk by it and wonder if it was occupied. Turns out there was a very old man living inside. I saw him on one of my walks with our granddaughter. Shortly afterwards ( a few months later ) I saw a younger man cleaning the yard and cutting back the brush, revealing a very run-down house that looked like it was in the verge of falling down. My guess is the elderly owner passed away and now the house is in the hands of his heirs. I’m very curious about the inside of the house.

  1. I wonder how long the old man lived there. I wonder if he grew up there. It must have been difficult to have to let the yard go when he got too tired and weak to keep it up.
