The view from the street remains the same, a residence with several vehicles parked in front. Only the gated side yard displayed signs of activity. The big blue dumpster has been filled and emptied at least three times; filled to the brim with wood, sheetrock, fixtures, flooring, carpeting, insulation, etc.
It was startling to see the gutted interior, the bare bones of a structure that was home to two sets of terrific neighbors over the past 20+ years.
What's left are a ton of memories, and the anticipation of change ahead. I was right, there is a lot of interesting activity in the neighborhood..
