Monday Window Tranquility Base (again)

Q: When is a window not a window?

This outbuilding of one of the usually unoccupied houses here in Tranquility Base has seen a lot of re-purposing over the years. The shuttered window obviously used to be a door and there are the phantom vestiges of two other windows.

Monday Window – Abandoned

When we were house-hunting in France we saw quite a few of what we described as ‘Marie Celeste ‘ properties – houses that seemed to have been frozen in time as their inhabitants just upped and left.

This was one of them. I cannot remember where it was but I do know we didn’t buy it.
