Requiem For a Dream

Okay that's a BIT dramatic.

But this house.....

Which is quite lovely inside.

And looks like THIS in the backyard...
Well it also looked like THIS at the backdoor.
Right - it has been broken into. And the sellers agent would have been aware of it as they had REPLACED the door handle but not the deadbolt which they left hanging in it's hole all jacked up. How do I know this?
Take a look. There is the OLD doorknob on the ground.
Who the hell knows what ELSE is wrong if they couldn't do us the courtesy of telling us the house was vandalized?
We've rescinded the offer and go back to the drawing board on the the house hunt.

The house was also really close to a power substation and I read enough about EMFs and the "possible" link to cancer (suspiciously the EPA just doesn't think this is much of a problem) that I was just uneasy about the whole thing.

The Adventure begins again.

I'm sorry.

You're better off without it, I think. God knows what else they didn't tell you. And, if it was vandalized once, it could very likely happen again.
