Outhouse with a compost toilet. You sprinkle kitty litter in the toilet before you make. In the hot Phoenix summers, the smell is so bad that the tiles peel off.


Running water in an outhouse. That’s high living!


Thar’s lotsa iron in them thar pipes.


In the ol’ West, we spell words diff’rently: rcoks, gravle, stnoes, bouldres, and pebbels. Yer darn tootin’ we do.

    Looks like the ‘ole west has it’s own saloon out back. Expect a shoot out any second now.

    Well, it’s an interesting backyard at least.

    And why is the pool saltwater? I’ve only seen those near the ocean.

    Felix, it’s a sales gimmick to upgrade your pool system to salt water. No need to put chlorine into the pool which could turn your blonde hair green and dry out your skin. Pay $$$ to have salt water and have softer skin, they say. But the salt water “cell” mechanism only lasts about 3-4 years and can cost $600-$700 to replace. A lot of people give up and go back to chlorine ($70/year for tablets).
