This place has it all.
I’d passed this house in Lee, Massachussets several times before on the Berkshire Dual Sport rides. Even though my friends know me well enough to realize that coming across such a place is like nirvana for me, we’d never stopped.
A few weekends ago while heading down towards the ferry home, since I was right around the corner, I stopped in for a peek.
After all these years I still haven’t figured out what the right protocol is for lurking around someones yard. You have to imagine that such a place attracts many lookers but even so, I approach anything that is a home with a wide berth. Then I go home wondering if I would’ve been allowed to go closer. ::shrug::
I suppose its better to err on the side of caution and not find myself being attacked by a junkyard dog or a slightly touched homeowner wondering what I’m doing on their property.
I can’t even begin to know what the red-eyed, menacing Santa with barrel legs is up to. I just know that if that dude showed up after midnight on my roof as a kid… nightmares.
I did a quick Google search to try to find out about this house but didn’t see anything. Any locals know the story?
Thanks to super-sleuth Stephanie – an obituary for Rosemarie “Wonder Woman” Dupont was found. It seems she passed away in December 2009. The house and barn must be a tribute to her from her husband, who is a painter. Rest in peace, Rosey.
