The old trailer house that we brought here for my mom and dad back around 1986 has done its duty: Mother lived there until she decided she wanted to move to a less rural setting, closer to her friends and Church. Then a family of four moved in, and they lived there thirteen years. Now they've moved, and you can see for yourself that the old trailer is ready for the bone yard.
Thankfully, they found a home. I'm sure everybody is happy with this deal: They have a more livable house, and our property value will raise the minute that mess is gone.
My son is here from Georgia, and he and Cliff spent much of yesterday getting ready to move the trailer. A neighbor boy removed the aluminum skirting, which he'll turn in for cash. Kansas City Power and Light came out and removed the meter and line to the house. The next job Cliff and Jim faced was to shut off the water line running from the well-house to the trailer. At one time there had been a shut-off valve, but it had given up the ghost at some point. So the line had to be capped.
