National Night Out

Tuesday was National Night Out - an excuse to have a block party and get to know your neighbors. My neighbor three hours down organized again this year and it drew a great crowd. Alicia and I met some neighbors and relearned a ton of names.

Even two great stories came out of the night.

1) There's a house on our block that hasn't been lived in since 1978. It's a tiny... TINY House.

I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't even noticed it - it's pretty covered by shrubs. The neighbors claim it's owner moved away for family reasons and just sits on it because it's so cheap. They have an agreement with him to mow the lawn in exchange for using the yard space. Crazy.

2) There's another house on our block that looks like the Amityville Horror house. I don't see it, but I do see that they embraced the look. Here's the house at night:

Spooky Scary!
