Jeez Ben-You Drove right by and didn't stop in? I had a twelver of Black Label dude...
Bet it's a stone's throw from St. Mary's...
No idea. Anyone recognize it?
The greatest thing about this picture are the Christmas decorations. That is the living definition of putting lipstick on a pig.
How did I miss that yard sale?
Sad, just sad. I bet there is a great story at that house.
A great story? It's just a house with a pile of garbage out front waiting to be picked up. Maybe they just did some spring cleaning. Take away that pile and there's no story. Just some people with questionable tastes in lawn...er...ah...dirt lot decoration. They can't be doing too bad because they appear to have a double dose of satellite TV. The house is a little unkempt but it's certainly no poverty case. It's just a typical house on the east side. Some people aren't poor. They're just slobs.
Ben Hamper is the Ansel Adams of Flint's East Side.
Hey, the house is doing better than the next door neighbor.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
