4 years, 1 month.
On the drive in the Lexus RX 450h this weekend to go see the progress on our new house, I explained to Mommy that I have always been curious about that old abandoned silo tower that sits right there on the side of Main Street of Spring Hill.
It’s right past Starbucks and right before McDonald’s. I’ve always been fascinated by such an old country relic being left intact on the busiest and most fundamental road of the city.
Mommy decided to remain in the luxury chariot (the Lexus RX 450h) while we literally raced to the tower.
Once we got there, we saw that it was basically empty. I discovered a ladder that leads to the very top. Maybe I’ll save that climb for some other time…
Spring Hill has been around for a little over 200 years now, but here in the past decade especially, all that boring ole farm land has begun translating into major dollar signs to the descendants of the original farm owners.
They sell it to development companies who then go on to make cute houses for families like ours; just another hard working middle class family who drives back out of Spring Hill each day to actually make money.
It’s a classic case of a developing bedroom community.
I predict in the next 5 years, the land with the tower on it will be sold and the tower will be knocked down to make room for new houses.
But you and I will always be able to say that we visited that tower and poked our heads in it; getting our picture made right in front of it. In case it fades to a vague memory, let this letter and these pictures serve as a reminder of what we did.
Actually, I’ve never heard of anyone actually visiting that tower. We must be pretty cool or something.
Catch up on the entire series of the Lexus RX 450h Weekend. A lot of exiciting things happened!
