The house next to me assumed new ownership a few weeks ago.
At first, I was extremely skeptical about the folks living next door. They left a lot of junk lying in the yard, similar to the rental property across the street. As a homeowner the past three years, I’ve become very aware of those living around me.
However, my mind has been changed.
Their backyard, complete with new plants, mulch and a concrete bench, has changed my mind. They’ve installed outdoor lights lining the front porch and an American flag hangs from the house.
