One of my neighbors, and older man that lived a few houses down the street from me, died some time ago. I didn't know him well. He lived alone and evidently had no children, no living siblings. A sign has appeared in the front yard of his home saying it will be auctioned in a tax sale. A couple of weeks ago someone or group opened the house up and sold most of his belongings. I was vaguely interested in biddingt on the property as a rental investment. So I went inside to checki it out. This Christmas tree was in an upstairs bedroom.
