Not Empty

Sometimes I am a little baffled by what gets left behind when a building is abandoned.  Machinery that, before it rusted, could be worth hundreds of not thousands in scrap metal is be found in factories.  Furniture, clothes, dishes, flatware and sometimes personal memorabilia can be found in homes.

In this school they took almost everything, but left behind no less than 2 pianos.   I think there is a third in the basement.



Yet the janitor’s room was cleared of everything but for the metal shelves.



Meanwhile the basement is full of text books, office supplies and (oddly enough) christmas decorations.

Still, they sealed the empty classrooms shut.

    I like the duct tape on the piano. I’d so take that home. Though it probably sounds like complete crap.

      it did sound pretty bad, and I’d love to see you get it out the window we came in through!
