While doing my evening walk around the yard, I decided to go into the storage house and look around a bit.
When my parents first got the house and had it moved into our yard, it was intended to be here only temporarily. As the different sections of the farm were to go to each of the boys, they thought that the house would eventually be moved to one of these sections, placed over a basement instead of on cinder blocks, and one of my brothers would be living in it.
That never happened.
We did, however, use the place. I spent many hours playing in here, holding sleepovers with my friends on the second floor. The younger of my brothers held parties in it.
Somehow, in all that time, I never really noticed this.
An outlet mounted this high up is odd enough, but to mount one in between two windows like this? How very strange.
These windows are in the kitchen of the old house.
I glanced in the cupboards and drawers. In one cupboard, I found an old text book.
“Biology Investigations” seems an appropriate title, when looking down.
The dead critter is one thing (rat? squirrel?). Then there’s that mystery pile of whatever, that looks like it might be a nest of some kind.
Getting this place cleaned up might need a haz mat team!
