This home needs a lot of help. There are a lot of details to iron out.

As we pan right, we see two cans of Raid bug spray and a knotted curtain.  Ugh.

In the next room, past the knotted curtain, we have to wonder how those books are still standing.

At least they are patriotic.

There’s that knotted curtain!  It makes a statement.

The bathroom is less cluttered than expected.

The curtain rod fell down before the closet shelf did.  Just barely.

Bathtub Gin

This Tonopah, Arizona property supposedly lies on top of a natural hot spring.  The sellers filled bathtubs with hot water.

Here are two more bathtubs.  Why so many?  Can you charge a fee to the public?

January 2nd, 2015 · 1 Comment

Can you believe it’s been 15 (!!) years since the Y2K “crisis”?  Yes, on December 31, 1999, the world waited with baited breath to see if computers would crash on 1-1-2000.  But the old technology kept on working.  Just like this old satellite dish.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Outside we see a storm/tornado cellar or fallout shelter or dungeon or family mausoleum.

When they said they were having a mixer in the back yard, we thought they meant a party, not an actual cement mixer.
