A House Grave
Old houses make me wonder who lived there and what their life was like. Many times I stop to take a picture and its a good thing because sometime they are no longer there the next time I pass. The first house on my sidebar was a house on the large ranch John leased for over 30 years. I braved the tall grass a few times to rummage around in it. Lots of trash and old mattesses inside but the one thing that interested me was a piano. You say why didn't I take it and have it refurbished? I was very tempted but It smelled so bad in there from rat pee. Anyway several years ago a sign was put on the front by the county or state (not sure which) that this house was a health hazzard and needed to be destroyed. John had a man with machinery dig a large hole and push the house into the hole and bury it and smooth it over. No one would ever know now there is a house grave there with years of memories. Who played that piano?
