The window-screens are still there

This is a good sign. The windows have even been opened. The new neighbor has not been seen in person. There's no sign of an impending subdivision of this plot into two. No horrible glaring security lights have been installed thus far. The full-window screens on the house are not ornamental. It's truly a shame when newcomers remove the old ornamental screens, the ones with ornamental arcs or with down-pointing arrows, both in the Arts and Crafts style, or just the ones divided with mullions. When they go, a house loses one of its important accessories and appears to be partly unclothed. The next deed is usually to nail the windows shut and call in the security-alarm sellers.
