Love, love, LOVE this vintage pickup truck and the strange reverse tent-trailer it’s pulling. They match! And it looks like they’ve matched for decades!
I love this house, because the guy who owns it is the guy I aspire to be, keeping everything neat as a pin. The shrubbery is trimmed just so, the grass is clipped, the driveway is shiny clean and I’d be willing to bet not a single maintenance task inside has been deferred. Sadly, I am nowhere near this accomplished.
I went out of town for a week and a house disappeared. Here is what has replaced it. Two huge houses with no yard and costing much more than I’ll ever be able to afford. (Not that I would want a house that big.)
Here’s the view from the back.
And today’s “Only in Portland” sighting:
One thought on “Some observations of neighborhood houses.”
I agree that it’s a lovely yard, but I just can’t get over that chain link fence. I’m sure they must be cheap, but I think they’re so ugly. Every time I see one, it makes me sad.
