First day of househunting

The places I looked at today were both old. But the one I went ahead and applied to—this should be successful—had an updated interior, including a microwave oven. Garages are available. The other one has only a small parking lot, which apparently no one uses, down in back on an alley (can’t wait to wait for the snowplow to get to that one). It has not been updated at all. I did not apply to the second.

I also went by some old addresses.

At left is the place my parents and I lived in when we moved back here. It’s a duplex; we lived on the unit on the right. On the right is my maternal grandparents’ old home; this too was really a duplex: They rented out the upper floor.
