Hideout for sale

I'd been hiding out here for more than 15 years, mostly running my body part mail order service (Fred's Heads, Etc). The police were tipped off by my mailman, who noticed one day that one of my packages was screaming and another package tore open and "several thousand thumbs came pouring out" (Kaynesport Observer, November 17, 2009). So I'm going away for a while, but my former hide out is perfect for an escaped convict or even a juvenile delinquent who wants to stash a few shopping carts or drink some lawnmower oil. * Must like mold, possums and the musical group Moldy Possum * Fred 555-3145 After January 8: Sherman-Kurksher Realty 555-1642
