We were putting our gear in our car, about to head off to the Highland Game. I saw an elderly man and woman in a car driving by slowly. I figured they were trying to find a particular address, and didn't pay much attention until they pulled into our driveway and waved me over to talk.
Thinking that they would ask "Do you know where so-and-so lives?" I went over to them. Instead of asking for directions, the old woman said "My husband and I built this house, and we lived in that house next door to you."
I was quite stunned. I wasn't sure what to say, but was rescued by my mom who came over to chat.
We only talked for a few minutes. The man (who was the woman's son) seemed eager to leave. Maybe he had something else he wanted to do. Before leaving, the woman did tell us that her son used to have a tree house in the oak in our front yard.
Afterwards, I realized that she didn't even tell us her name, and we didn't tell her ours.
What would you think if a stranger showed up and said that they'd built your house?
