The View From Here - Various thoughts and travels
When I see something like this it makes me feel so sad. Sad that no one wants the house as a home - and sad to think of all the homeless people who could make use of it if it were fixed up. I don't suppose there's any jobs in the area so that could explain why.
I bet that old house saw more than a few Christmases in its day. I hope they were happy ones.
