When I posted my views from a morning walk and views from an evening walk, I showed photos from my neighborhood stroll with the dog. Many people commented about the nice area where I lived, but I’m going to let you in on our dirty little secrets … literally.
In my memoir anthology, I wrote a story about where I lived as a child and the creepy mystery house two doors down. On my blog, I pointed out how I moved 1,200 miles away from home and had another creepy house two doors down from me.
One commenter wasn’t happy with my depiction of this neighbor, so I didn’t blog about what happened soon after that post. Aussa Lorens blog has inspired me to share it now.
All of us nearby neighbors aren’t sure how the woman in the creepy house didn’t appear on the TV show hoarders. After the health department declared it a hazard and asked her to leave, take a gander below at what the cleanup crew found.
You can find photos of the house before she was removed, here.
One of our other neighbors, AG, is not afraid to ask questions, and poked his head in during the demolition. He saw unspeakable things … things you can only see on reality shows, or perhaps read about in a blog.
I mentioned in my original post that we never saw any garbage put out at the curb there. As a result, AG observed trash piled high (loose, not in bags) to the ceiling inside the house. He also learned that the occupant hadn’t paid the water bill, so you can imagine what types of horrors AG witnessed in the bathrooms.
We noticed a large dent at the bottom of the garage after the occupant left. AG sniffed out the answer to that one as well. (<pun) Apparently, the woman didn’t like being forced to move, so she rammed her PT Cruiser into the door.
You’d think her removal would raise the level and overall look of the neighborhood, but no. A rental company bought the house and must not have felt it was in need of any cosmetic surgery. The people they rented it to were quite the opposite … to the extreme. It seemed a dozen people lived in the home, and noisy doesn’t begin to describe the sounds coming from there. Thankfully, they only lasted about eight months. Finally, the rental company painted the house and did a few other things to improve the look. We have nice neighbors two doors down now, but what was about to move in around the corner we never saw coming …
