I was puppy sitting for my daughter and her husband one afternoon and as children and pets often do - Rue led me to meeting one set of neighbors. They are young, very nice (thank the good Lord) and knew some things about my house that I didn't. Apparently the people who lived here before me were .. wait for it ... HOARDERS! Which is why, apparently, they gutted the house and did a big do-over on the inside before I bought the house.
|Not my house. (at least I don't think it is!)|
It was when he passed away that there was an estate sale, so-to-speak, and they saw inside. They didn't give me a lot of details, I will definitely ask more questions when I know them better, but I guess it was bad. They also saw the difference when the workers were done rehabbing the house and they were amazed at what had been done.
I love hearing the history, I guess it's a kind of gossip - but this is MY house now and I want to know all about it. Hoarders. I mean really, it figures.
I think I need to get rid of some more stuff. Just sayin'.
