Thank you to our anonymous donor for this Grove City, Pennsylvania home’s photos.  In our first photo, the seller is sitting down, waiting for buyers.  He also has a rifle on display in case buyers dare offer less than the asking price.

At least there isn’t a silly pot rack hanging in the middle of the kitchen.  Thank you.
