SOLD to the man with the big gulp!
They were blaring Martin McBride music over the loud speakers while lots of folks drove up and walked through the house. There was a police officer at the front door.
Pretty soon I saw the ladies who used to live in the house drive up. They said hi to everyone, walked through the house and proceeded to go across the street about 3 houses down from my house and sit on the porch with a few other ladies to watch the action...not long later I hear one of the ladies start yelling and next thing you know they ran off the previous home owners and started yelling things like "EAT !@#! and DIE". Holy moly cat fight drama. They ended up standing on the sidewalk watching their house get auctioned off. sheesh!
The auctioneer stalled at 46,000$ and it looked like there were 2 people bidding...they paused to do a raffle and once that was over they started doing their auction calling thing again...pretty soon the guy who owns the group home (I think he's the owner..otherwise he was just visiting someone who lives there...) next door to the house being auctioned walks out and stands in front of the auction truck...about 3 minutes later he was the proud owner of the neighboring property for 47,500$. As soon as he won he walked over to his car, opened the door, grabbed his big gulp and walked back into his house. LOLOLOL. I was dying. He came back out eventually, looked like he was on his phone laughing...still holding his big gulp. I think he was a little shocked he bought a house with no warning.
I had fun watching it all go down and I took lots of video and pictures...I'll post them on facebook...it takes to long to put videos on blogger.
