The lot next door to us is vacant. It, along with a couple of lots adjoining it, and a couple of lots across the street from me are still for sale. I asked Vince if we could please buy the lot next to us because I don’t want neighbors. He said “NO! No one is ever going to buy that lot.” It’s real REAL small and I don’t see how anyone could build a house that meets the minimum square feet.
But, when we lived in KY, there were 2 acres next to us for sale. I asked Vince if we could please buy those two acres because I didn’t want neighbors. He said “NO! No one is ever going to buy that land.” His reasoning was that the only buildable section was right up at the front, on the highway and then it dropped off. A creek that ran through the very back of our property came up through the front part of that property. Well, wouldn’t you know it . . someone bought the 2 acres, and built a house.
At least monthly I say “are you sure we can’t buy that lot next door?” He doesn’t even answer me any more . . he just looks at me. The answer is NO!
About a month ago, strangers began walking around on that lot. Then they put out some stakes like where the four corners of the house would be. I do not want neighbors!
When I look out the door of my basement, I’m looking toward that lot. I don’t want to see a house and people. I want to see grass and land and that makes me feel like I’m not living in the city.
Last night I looked out the door and this is what I saw:
He was messing around in the little creek bed that divides the other lot from my lot.
This is the for sale lot where they’ve been cleaning. Oh, I almost forgot the whole point of this post. I was so frustrated about getting new neighbors. But yesterday when I went to the grocery store, I saw that the prospective new neighbors had chosen a different lot . . one on the corner completely at the other end of the street and they’ve already poured the footings. Whew . . no new neighbors for now.
Then Vince and I talked:
Me: Did you see they’re building their house down on the corner instead of next door?
Vince: Yes, I saw that.
Me: Can we buy that lot so we don’t have neighbors?
Vince: NO! No one is ever going to build on that lot?
Want to see what’s behind my house and off to the side? This explains why I have so many deer.
Who would think we’re right in town, 4 blocks off the five lane (the five lane with no traffic). If only we had 40 acres and a pond!
