Olympus µ[mju:] Zoom 140

This is the cutest house in my old neighborhood. It’s so cute compared to the other basic brick and frame ranch houses on every street that you wonder how it got built there.

Yet for as long as I lived there, it received care that was indifferent at best. At present it appears to be abandoned, with gutters full of crud, that decorative front-door shutter hanging loose, and a lawn that has turned to weeds and hasn’t been cut in weeks.

As you may infer from the tenses I’m using in this post, I’ve completed my move and now live in Zionsville. I’m happy the move is complete, and I’m thrilled to get to see my wife every single day.

    That really is a charming house. Whenever I see one like this I want to adopt it and fix it up. Then I remember how much work my own house needs.

    I admire the way you have coped with a very challenging living arrangement.

      Thanks Jim. We’re in that transition period now of everybody here figuring each other out. Hope we sort through all that soon!


    Good onya Jim. Best wishes for your future happiness. Love your posts.

    Welcome to the neighborhood. We should get together over a fish sandwich one of these days. Or a burrito.

      I’m in, my man. As long as whatever we go for is gluten free!
