A few months ago, our Church board chair moved to another town. The job was there and the timing was right.
They left behind a house to be sold. For insurance purposes someone needed to be checking it every other day. We lived just down the back alley. Another couple lived on the other side of town. Both of us got keys. But we were the more likely candidates to oversee the regular “walk through”.
The house finally sold (a burden off the shoulders of our friends!). The possession date is December 1st. So, this morning I shovelled the newly fallen snow from the walk, did a walk through, and bid farewell to the opportunity to examine the house every other day.
I guess I’ll have to find another excuse for exercise!
