Today I dropped by the houseand I grew up in (lived there nearly 20 years). It's been abandoned for a couple of years now, maybe more. Every so often when I'm in the neighborhood I'll stop by in hopes that a nice family has moved in and is enjoying the house as much as we did.
Still no luck. Every time I stop by it's in even worse shape. No different today. It's a real downer.
While I was peeking in the window today I decided to give the door a try and surprisingly it was unlocked. So, if you're a police officer in the Fort Wayne area, you can just stop reading now! :-)
Anyway we took the opportunity to take a little tour of the house and snap some pictures… which depressed me even more. The place has been destroyed. :-(
The room with the Star Wars wall paper was my old bedroom. I slept on a bed that was 5 foot high and built into a wall decorated with wall paper from "The Empire Strikes Back" (may explain a lot about me – right?) The wall across from my bed was completely covered in cork. Incredible idea for anyone with kids. You can pin anything you want to the wall! There was a wall just like it in's room.
The room with the carpeted staircase and now a hole that goes all they way through the roof was's room. The stairway led to a small hide-a-way room that our Dad built in the attic.
The room where my wifeand son are posing was the family room. There were a lot of hours spent in there. Evidently there were a few things that the previous owners decided they didn't need.
A lot of happy memories there. Super depressing seeing it like this. :-(
