I've driven by this place for decades since I've lived her in Des Moines WA. I pass by mostly on the way to work. I've seen it go from a house were someone used to live, to a home that was abandoned, taken over by decay and english ivy. Just recently I've noticed someone has been cutting down dead trees and clearing away all the ivy that was over taking it. They've been working on a driveway from the road down to the house hauling in truck loads of fill dirt and gravel. Today I decided I should drive down there and get a picture of my old familiar landmark before the bulldoze it down. I'm hopeful that they will fix it up. Prime view property with a clear vista of Mt Rainier from the now decaying back porch. I'm just happy to have captured a place that must hold many memories of the people that once inhabited it.
