There's been an exodus in the neighborhood lately. The two houses directly across the street from us have been suddenly and illegally vacated in the last couple of weeks. It works in our favor, because Matt Traylor (radiant's drummer) and his family rented one of them post-defector.
The other one had rented a dumpster before they folded their tents like the Arabs and slipped quietly away, so we emptied half our garage into that before the man came and got it today. They also left two cars and a ceramic frog, which we have left alone. The bank came by and asked if we had seen anybody over there lately, and that was kinda exciting to say what day I saw the Uhaul come and such.... the bank is lucky that I see all.
I wish now that I would have realized perfidy was afoot. I would have paid much closer attention. If I notice anybody else around here "moving out", you can bet I'll be keeping a sharp eye on the scoundrels.
