    I'm calling this an abandoned place. Not seeing much in the way of traffic recently.

    I think "coming soon" painted on the side is a little misleading! :lol3

    It's been there for about 20 years or so, and someone keeps repainting it every few years to keep it fresh! :lol3

    I am still trying to figure out why the grass is mowed? Clearly an abandoned house but who is mowing the darn grass?


    Likely former tenants are old and relocated to nursing or retirement facilities, or deceased. Property remains in the family but can't be sold due to sibling squabbles. Grass gets mowed perhaps in the hope of suggesting it isn't abandoned and an invitation to vandals and/or meth heads.

    Or there is a long term contract with the kid down the street to keep the grass cut. The kid who entered into the agreement as a pre-teen probably finished college, began a family and has his own kids continuing the weekly ritual. Instead of armstrong powered push mowers, his kids enjoy a zero degree turn rider with a 40" deck.

    All the while they could have staked out a horse on a long lead and kept the grass short and fertilized.

    Sometimes around here the neighbors, city or county keep the grass cut around abandoned places for fire prevention. They will also cut back trees and brush.

    I keep the right of way along the FM road fronting my F-i-L's ranch mowed, right at one-half mile long. I've seen too many brush fires, and praying for rain or a wind direction shift with the big smoke heading your way, is no substitute for maintaining a reasonable fire break. As for brush in the fence line, that's what the electric sprayer and 30 gallon tank are for, but you will need a private pesticide applicator permit to get the good stuff that actually works.

    July 4, 2009, was one of those days you can never forget. My F-i-L had a feeling we should go to the ranch to keep an eye on things, we were in a drought and despite a county wide burn ban, you just can't figure on city folks not realizing what fireworks can do in such a situation. Oh yeah, the pucker factor went from zero to mach 1+ in the length of time it took to see the smoke and read the wind. The last shot is on the place directly across the road. Fortunately no structures or live stock were lost and the VFD scored a large contribution that day to their operating budget.

    All to very real . . . .
