Evolution: Jeff Resnick's Backstory.)
Two years after we moved in, that family moved out--and the house was bought by a couple of empty-nesters who had relocated from down state when the husband got a job here in Rha-cha-cha. The wife moved her baby grand piano in and gave lessons for the the next twenty years. We often heard her (muffled, yet exceptional) playing.
And then Thursday, a moving van showed up and took away a bunch of furniture (probably for storage). Maybe their son (who had returned about 10 years ago) was going to finally move out on his own. But, no. Yesterday, late in the day, a FOR SALE sign went up in the yard.
So, who will we get as neighbors? I don't care what color or creed people are as long as they are QUIET! Will that happen? We'll just have to wait to find out.
Do you have a neighbor-moving horror story?
