I have a theory. Do not tell this to people as a fact, because it is all in my mind.
Every day at least two cars would show up, and people would enter the house. Thursday was no exception: Two pickups pulled up, and a man got out of each pickup. They stood in front of one of the pickups and talked for at least an hour. Then they left.
Today being Saturday, I expected to see a lot of vehicles and people at the place, but nobody showed up. Nobody. On a weekend.
Cliff says I have been watching C.S.I. too much, but here is my theory: I think the people who have spent so much time there may have asked the bank that owns the property for some time to properly inspect the place. I think that the two guys that met there Thursday were the prospective buyer and the banker. I think they were talking about the price, and I think they could not come to an agreement.
As I said at the beginning, this is all guesswork on my part. It isn't fact. I will let you know how it turns out.
