Our next door neighbors have disappeared. Probably not in a "Omigod, call the police!" kind of way. I think they moved away in the middle of night, probably a couple of weeks ago. Their garage has been left open with only one lonely lawn chair to keep it occupied. The city posted a notice in the yard informing the owner to mow the lawn or they would do it and put a lien on the house. The lawn was mowed a couple of days ago, but the notice is still there.
I never saw a "For Sale" sign, so I'm guessing either the mortgage became too much for them or the homeowners' association threatened litigation over something. We have a very litigious homeowners' association. We paid our dues late a couple of years ago because my beloved was out of work. They sent back a notice claiming we needed to pay a $150 late fee (1 month late). Since he had lived in the house for a few years before we got together and had paid late before with no problem, he ignored the notice. That was a costly mistake. We ended up having to pay over $1500 to settle the suit they filed. So yeah, they'll always be greedy bastards to us.
Now if only we had enough moolah to replace our sad, sad carpet. Sigh.
