Semi Abandoned

Although this house is lived in, the third floor has been abandoned for years.

The man in this photo is blind.
He's my neighbor and is about to move from this house that he has lived in since 1958.
He knows every inch by touch and I often forget that he can't see, as he moves about without difficulty.
He's semi-famous for doing caning work on antique chairs...all by touch....weaving a beautiful pattern.

He and his family told me the house has spirits and they plan to have a seance before he moves out.
Naturally, I asked to be invited.

The original shutters from the 1890s still hang on the third floor window.
The house will most likely be boarded up and then torn down by the university that bought it.
