    Pulled up to bid on new account and thought I was at the wrong place. Long tree lined drive, big gate, and grass a 2 feet high! Well, the house is gothic looking, worn down, and looked deserted. Been living here and never knew this house was even there. I thought this looks like a movie set. A couple bought the house and is about to start renovating. I told myself no way am I gonna take this account. But once I walked around and i realized it would work out monitarily. I took the Cub Tank 60 and put the hurt on the grass. I kept looking around for zombies though. lol

    I love old houses like that. I just dont want to pay the heating and cooling bill on them.
