It still up in the air what my parents plan to do with our house, but I got the word from my mom that our across the street neighbor torn his down this week. He is a young high school teacher who had just bought the house a couple of years ago, if that. He bought it from our longtime neighbor Mrs. L. who way back when befriended my mom when she was still pregnant with me. Needless to say, I practically grew up there too so it’s very sad to hear that it’s gone now. Poppy links to this post whose feelings are captured quite eloquently.
