Day 20 — OctWriPoMo — Jones

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Little house big trees

On a city’s main artery

Sons long gone

Neighbor’s son

Growing from brat

To freak

Fence graffiti weekly

Time to move on

 

PATIENT Realtor

Websites

SWMRIC

Showings

Drive-bys

Tours

Bids

Repeat

Repeat

Repeat

Years

Resignation

 

Then….

Swmric

HIT

Not far

Jumped in the car

Drive…. Stop

Window tour

Back patio giant geranium in a pot

Tried door

Realtor lock didn’t stop

I walked in

Right then and there

And felt

At home.

 

Offer

Inspections

Needs new well

Old one 15 feet deep

MOTIVATED SELLER.  YES

he will pay for new well

260+ feet o drillin

Clock tickn on offer

Deadline got its ass beat.

Financing. Finagling.

Reams of paper.

tees crossed.

eyes too.

MINE!

And bank’s.

 

Sorting as I go

Nothing unwanted will come

Plants to dig up

And heavy rocks to haul

Trip after trip

Work at work then work

After work.  Home to home.

Even my dog gets tired

Watching.

Months.

Done.

Home.
