Where Have All the People Gone?


This morning walking to the Post Office I noticed an entire street full of empty houses. Walking along and counting I noticed that of the first ten houses that I passed, eight were empty. What is going on? Where are people going?



Scary times.

Addendum: So, about 5 minutes after I hit publish on this, there was a knock on the door. A nice lady and her husband who are buying the empty house next door. Would I do the closing? Of course! Work and a neighbor all in one day! Brighter days ahead?

I noticed that the house next door to you had a new "sale pending" sign last night. I thought it was a sign of progress out of our current economic down turn! Nice to hear that you are getting anew neighbor and new business!

They're all on their way to Florida or South Texas. This year they are rolling in early. Pappy

That was a fast turn around! I really hope things get better quickly for everyone but especially those in smaller rual towns. Hey how are the bees?

Beth, if it weren't for the snow I would consider buying a house next door to you too!

How's the bird watching coming?

BTW, I've got something for you on my blog if you want it! HugS!

Noooooooo. Not the empty house that Spouse and I loved ;)? And dreamed of? Not that one!
Just kidding- I hope they will be wonderful neighbours.
