Proud American Flag Owner

November 29th, 2016 · 7 Comments

Messy house with an American flag draped over the couch.

161129a

Hopefully the homeowner doesn’t sit on the flag.

161129b

What if the flag is a beach towel? Still seems disrespectful to sit on it.

161129c

Someday he’ll get around to reading those magazines and cleaning up the place.

161129d

Elvis paintings on velvet?!?!!?

161129e

This is the kitchen, believe it or not.

161129f

Lazy cat? Can’t jump up on the cat tower? Needs a ramp? Which blocks the back door. Just tell buyers to watch the litter box on their left and the ramp on their right and then step over the broom.

161129g

Messy bedroom with sunken mattress.

161129j

Another cluttered bedroom with auto parts.

161129k

Laundry room.

161129h

Made On Porpoise

Fish pond or water feature surrounded by dolphins.

161007a

Maybe these two dolphins escaped from the controversial Dolphinaris Arizona attraction in Scottsdale, Arizona? Someone thought it was a good idea to bring eight dolphins to mega-hot Arizona, so they can boil in the hot sun and hot water while humans pay to swim with them.

BBQ, Fire Pit, Or Fish Pond?

August 26th, 2016 · 3 Comments

This odd, submerged structure with the metal grate in the middle is either a BBQ grill or a fire pit where people gather around (with no seating) or it is a fish pond.  I doubt it’s a fish pond; there is porous flagstone on the bottom.
