Snake!

May 29th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Imagine visiting this Lyman, South Carolina home and seeing a snake on the bed!!  Would you pee your pants?  Before you realized it was a fake snake?  We hope it’s fake.  On the other hand, why would the seller put a fake snake on the bed?  To scare away what?

Entertainment Niches

May 4th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Entertainment centers, also known as media niches, were popular in the Phoenix area.  Until TVs got wider and not so deep.  The extra storage spaces all but guaranteed they would be filled up.

This unique set-up allows for a television to be placed in front of the niches.

It looks like they cut holes into the drywall to create the niches.

Bypoler?

April 21st, 2016 · 4 Comments

Culturally insensitive teenager?  Bypoler is a spelling variation of bipolar?  A Google search of bypoler shows an obscure Facebook page and Twitter page for a Bypoler clothing company.  Why take a risk at offending buyers?  Brophy Prep is a parochial high school for boys.  It’s a sloppy teenager’s bedroom, regardless.
