The flip house closed Friday, so the project’s officially started. My bro-in-law D and I pulled out all the carpeting on Saturday and hauled a ton of stuff to the trash area out front. The lady who lived here was in her nineties, and her kids didn’t totally clear the house.
There was some weird stuff left, like a ladies bowling ball and shoes. They were oddly neat and clean compared to the rest of the stuff, leading me to believe those cleaning up forgot to take it, or the freegans didn’t think to look in the particular cranny this ball lived. Other odds and ends — an ironrite machine, a chicken bone taped to the kitchen window, a small kitten figurine made from real kitty? fur that is really freaky.
