Spot the Differences

(or, Some Progress is Being Made)

Just a quick update about the ongoing museum renovation project. It is a struggle, and there are steps forward and steps back, but progress is being made.  Almost no sign of vermin of any kind for a few weeks now, so I thought I’d share this puzzle.

Here are two photos showing a view from a bedroom window across our yard, looking toward a neighbor’s house.

Can you spot the differences between these two photos?

Here’s the first photo, taken when we moved in about seven weeks ago:

Here is the second photo, taken today:

SPOILERS PAST HERE!

Here are the differences I can find:

1. The window glass has been replaced with genuine antique window glass taken from salvage.

2. The roof has been replaced with an asphalt roof.

3. The roof vent (which was smashed, but you can’t tell really in this photo) has been replaced.

4. The roof is not covered with garbage.

5. The rain gutters have been replaced (they are not smashed).

6. There is a new apple tree.

7. There is a new white oak.

8. There is a new locust tree.

9. The seasons have changed (deciduous trees are now bare). We did not change the seasons. We take no credit for the changing of the seasons.

10. The lawn is not dead. We take no credit for watering the lawn, as we didn’t. See #9.

Of course, as I look at this, I’m thinking: “That crappy protruding PVC sewer line vent still needs to be cut.  Grrrrr.”
