Mop

May 29th, 2014 · 8 Comments

They’ve had that mop for a long time.  New ones are white.  They’ve also had that roof for a long time.  Yes, those are turtles in the window sill.

Not a good first impression.  Oil stains everywhere on the driveway.  Hubcap missing.  Extra tire lying around.

There’s a football on the front yard.

    I think this goes back to the you can be poor but don’t have to be dirty, just cleaning up the weeds would only take a little work. They will probably end up selling to an investor as the roof is probably not the only high cost repair needed with this home.

    As an old person myself, I’m wondering how many of the houses you post are those of other old people — who can’t get out there and pull those weeds or clean up the outside…

    Just a thought. So many of us old people no longer have relatives nearby and our old friends are in the same boat we are.

    I agree with Jayne. This parking spot takes “To the Door” to a whole new level, lol

    Maybe it’s too hot out to take the initiative to tidy?

    It is supposed to hit 105 degrees today, then the weeds die and it looks even worse. I pull all mine in the spring when they start to grow. The one plus of the super hot summer is the weeds don’t grow in the rocks at 105 to 115+ degrees out.

    those pics say you could get this place for next to nothing. The comment about old folks homes is something we saw when we bought the house we are in. You see homes that were once loved and maintained but have been ignored for years as the oldsters can’t do the chores anymore. Sometimes it isn’t that there is nobody to help but they won’t accept any help because they look at it as charity.

    “Class of 65” don’t make you too old, lol. My mother is in her late 80’s and even the dust builds quick, lol. So I understand, however they can’t afford to fix that car…..

    Mops do come in colors other than white, you know. Like red, green and blue.

    Granted, that doesn’t make them any more photogenic….
