It’s baby chickens!!  With a short sale, you never want to count your chickens before they’re hatched.  The bank has to approve the offer.

Sleeping Porch

April 18th, 2016 · No Comments

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.

Presidents’ Day

February 15th, 2016 · No Comments

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.
