My grandmother’s house, is one of those places where time doesn’t matter but also where time goes by too fast. They lived on a half acre lot on the Kanawha river. Which you can imagine was so fun when I was a little kid. We would go up on weekends and cut a path down to the river because it would get overgrown fast. at the bottom there was a sandbar, and a giant city sewer drain pouring out water. The drain was about 10 feet in diameter and ran straight through the city to the other side, I never went in it but my dad and his friend went all the way to the other side once. So i would go fishing down there and catch carp, catfish and mudpuppys. Mudpuppys are giant salamanders. In the front yard there were a few giant oak trees and some ceders too. The coolest trees were two weeping cherries, really beautiful trees. They had a half paved half gravel drive way because it was shared with some the rich people next door. Every afternoon about an hour before dusk, all the buzzards and vultures from the city and beyond would come and sleep in the neighbors trees. The inside of the house was old fashion, and very homey. They had wool carpet, that was worn in most places but behind doors and next to furniture where no one walked it was like brand new. Some of the softest stuff ever, like standing on a cloud of fluff. The house had one of those creepy basements too, but we would still play down there all the time, in the basement they had a giant safe where they kept money from their store way back. The safe had nothing in it then but it was still really cool. The garage was the same way had a bunch of cool stuff in it. The rest of the house was normal with bed rooms upstairs, and living space down stairs. Eventually we moved my grandparents bed down stairs because they couldn’t go up and down the stairs as easy. It was a really nice place. After both of my grandparents pasted away we sold the property to the neighbors. We knew it would sell well because the economy of West Virginia. The neighbors kept all the doors and shingles and windows and tore down the rest. Now there is a giant garage where the house once stood. They did keep the flag pole and all the trees so that makes it a little better. If you have a place like this feel free to share below.
