Many years ago my family bought this house by paying the back taxes on it. The family living in this house had exactly a year to catch up on their delinquent taxes.

They managed to pay back everything they owed  in the eleventh month. The money we’d paid for the house was returned to us, and the original owners remained in possession of their home.

They later sold the property to someone else and you can see the new owners had several construction projects going on when I drove past. During the eleven months we “owned” this house I would drive by often…I was, indeed, the lady in the red car.

I love this house though I’ve never stepped foot inside it. I did however get a very nice book out of the experience.
