My friend Sally and I were headed out and about recently (before I got sick, I might add) and I asked her to drive by places where the homes were similar to mine. I wanted to see how others decorate their porches and landscape their yards.
What I found surprised me. In this first area, we drove through a part of town where some of the people didn't take very good care of their properties.
Others took great pride in their homes.
You can judge which are well cared for and which aren't.
Once we got on a main road,
we ran into all kinds of construction.
It seemed like it went on for miles.
When we stopped at Sam's, I saw this in a truck in the parking lot. I simply HAD to take a photo.
Back on the road, we were stopped by construction again.
While we waited and waited and waited, I took a few photos of the heavy equipment,
and the people working for the construction company.
Now we were in a very different part of town, where residential and commercial co-existed.
A very different part of town, but similar homes like mine.
I have many more of these photos, but I don't want to bore you. Thanks for going out and about with me to see three very different parts of my town, but all built up during a similar era due to the craftsman style homes. Again, I am so grateful you visited today.
