We certainly didn’t need the 80F or 26C eh temperatures…or the hot winds from the south. Fire danger is high, there are fires everyday…scary.
In town spring come a bit earlier than out here in the boonies. All that concrete makes a warmer micro climate.
The Forsythia outside Far Guys old home in town. The house used to be white. It now boasts a sheltered deck and a new step….the old front porch (that used to be really cold in the winter and was an area for boots and overshoes with a small closet that held the clothespin bag and the garbage can and the pencil sharpener was at the ready next to the window) now has a picture window. Of course that “newness” seems foreign to us.
Here you can see the old water tower. It will be torn down, it has been deemed unsafe.
It will certainly change the landscape…I think all of Far Guys old neighborhood pals had meetings and other such shenanigans at the water tower.
Far Guy’s parents sold their home in 1994 and they moved into an apartment. Recently the home sold again. When we saw it up for sale we checked to see if photos of the inside were online and they were. It was “interesting” to see the inside.
Outside there is still a big dip in the driveway, it used to be a mud hole in a rainy spring…it is rumored that an old abandoned well is under that dip. Over the years that dip has been filled many times but yet it keeps showing up…it must be resistant to change.
Things change, time stands still for no one except maybe an old dip turned mud hole in an old driveway.
