I notice this house almost daily. It's one of those fine old Victorian types of houses that linger here and there.
To their credit, the owners have resisted siding it.
To my dismay, they are also taking forever to paint the thing. You see, this is our fourth September here, and there was scaffolding up in that very first September. It came down sometime before winter, but it was up the following summer and the next and this one just past as well. Oh they do make progress, but it's rather slow going, and I think I've only ever seen someone painting just once. It seems to me that it will take at least another summer or two before they're done. By then, it will probably be time to start all over.
I wonder if there will ever be a summer without scaffolding. Perhaps I'll miss it when it's gone.
It's all okay and not my business, but it's just something that strikes me as a bit unusual, so I thought I would share the photo and explanation with you.
And it makes for an easy blog.
And easy is good.
