Random Thoughts – That’s not weird, right?
There’s this little building near some railroad tracks I cross every day. This place is clearly a residence, but it’s just a plain, white, cinder-block building. Not very house looking at all.
I think it used to be a business. This little spot was apparently a train stop at one time, and there are two abandoned buildings next to the house, and a boarded up depot station across the street.
I want so badly to knock on the door and ask, “Can I look inside your house?”
Is that really so strange?

what a cool place for a multitude of photo ops. 🙂
It really is! And it’s one of those places – train tracks, abandoned buildings, open spaces, etc. – that are somehow appealing to photograph whether it’s dark and dreary and wet, or beautiful blue sky weather.
a place i could visit often
I’ve wanted to do that many times with my old houses.
There was a house that I thought was perfect for the book I’m writing. A woman stepped outside and I said hello and told her my thoughts. She asked me if I wanted to see it! SCORE!
That’s pretty cool!! When I was in college, I used to drive around in the mountains and look at all the interesting old houses planted on the hillsides. I did stop once and talked to a couple who were working outside. Turns out it was a bed and breakfast. I didn’t tour it though, but now I wish I’d asked!
I don’t think it is strange at all. It would be more strange not to wonder about it.
I think so too! I am a curious cat by nature anyway. I want to know about everything, haha – even things I don’t really care much about.
Sometimes i get hung up on stuff that has absolutely no place in my world.
My wife thinks like you. She wants to go to every open house in the neighborhood. I would feel like a burglar who was just looking.
Haha, really? That’s funny, and I can’t put myself in your shoes as hard as I try. I love all those house shows, whether it’s about remodeling or house hunting or whatever. Honestly, I just want them to cut to the chase and show me inside all the houses! I want to see the furnishings, the layout, are the bathrooms nice… Maybe it’s a girl thing?
I love mysterious places like that, and I would want to take a peek inside as well.
Another valication for me and my curiosity!!
