Back in the day, before air conditioning, Arizonans survived the summer heat by sleeping outdoors on sleeping porches. Sometimes they placed wet sheets in open windows or on porches to create cooler air. Sometimes, as we see at this Wickenburg, Arizona home, they crack holes in the window panes to let air to flow in.

It’s fun to hang out on the patio. Maybe go for a swim too?

Today is Presidents’ Day. We’ll focus on our 9th President, William Henry Harrison. His campaign song was Tippecanoe & Tyler Too. Here we see a canoe that’s tipped over.
President Harrison beat the incumbent President Van Buren, who was up a creek without a paddle (A depression and poor economy hurt Van Buren’s chances). Here are some kayaks and some paddles.

The seller loves her home. She’s cuckoo about it.
She’s so excited about her house, she raised her arm in joy.
This young girl is checking out the house.
These sellers have at least seven dogs. The neighbors are friendly too.
He only has two dogs.
We see you in the mirror.
Yes, please leave the room. And take your beer and ashtray with you too.

Texaco motor oil lubricates perfectly. Mopar - you’re with us or behind us. [Insert joke here with those two slogans]
Toyota - let’s go places. In bed.

Pre-foreclosure sale in Phoenix. Lookin’ good so far.
It has a pantry with an almost-see-through door.
The boy in the bubble?
Needs help. The photographer and the bathroom.
One out of four isn’t bad.
The best room of the house.
The air freshener really helps.
Instead of a hole in the door, how about adding a window or skylight to this dark bathroom?
The clump of hair is impressive.
Weed you want to buy this house?
It’s rare to see a home in Phoenix without a patio cover. Perhaps they tore it down? There are holes in the wall above the sliding doors. By the way, did you notice the cat under the table?
At least the air conditioner is still there.

There continues to be a disconnect between short sale sellers and reality. Short sale sellers are asking a big favor of the banks. You’d think they’d care a little more about how their home looks. Here’s another fine example.
Bud Light beer cans and bottled beer on the floor. He’s a real tiger.
In bedroom #2, we see too much of too much stuff.
Hot and cold in this bedroom. There’s a portable heater and a fan.
The chaos continues in the fourth bedroom.
Everything is easily accessible when it’s on the counter. Except for extra light bulbs.
Something’s going on with the cooling system. There’s an air vent in the dining room but they also installed a window air conditioner.
There was a family discussion about adding more furniture, but it was tabled.
Two lawnmowers and yet the grass wasn’t mowed?!

Today is Boxing Day in Canada. For some reason, Canadians love pugilism. Have a go at the punching bag on Boxing Day.
Canadians also enjoy stacking boxes on Boxing Day. Whoever has the highest stack wins a prize. Like a car battery as seen in this photo.
