Emergency Kits

September 18th, 2017 · No Comments

Help yourself to a Mountain Dew.

Safety first. Two fire extinguishers just in case.

Entry without carpet on the left. Kitchen in the back left. Dining in the back right. Living room with stained carpet to the right.

Dining room with extra carpet. And emergency kits.

The dark carpet helps camouflage the stains.

Hallway, no carpet.

Opposite view, hallway, no carpet.

Bathroom.

Guest bathroom. And there’s the guest!

Bedroom.

Another view of the bedroom. Did we have to see the bras?

Back yard. With outdoor carpeting.

Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.

Tornado In Kingman?

September 8th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Did a tornado or hurricane hit this Kingman, Arizona house? Good grief.

What happened?

Really?

Disaster scene.

???

This is a different fireplace than the one in the above photo.

What happened up there?

Messy bedroom with a hole in the ceiling.

Another hole in the ceiling.

And now an even bigger hole!

Explain that! The Kool-Aid guy visited?

Tanks, but no tanks. We’ll pass.

Most buyers would love a soaking tub. How about this one? It’s from a Goodyear, Arizona home being sold as a short sale.

Not sure why someone would need four pair of scissors at the ready.

The kid did pick up his room. Now to shampoo the carpet.

Cluttered garage. [The photo was blurry]

Above the covered patio is a sundeck! See the table up there?

Storage shed included.

Concrete blocks and scrap wood included too.

Two TV sets and a vacuum cleaner also included.

The owners were too tired to clean up the back yard.

This house could be yours, in six months when the bank approves the short sale.

Oh, look. They added a yellow shower. Golden shower?

Happy Fourth of July!!

July 4th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Today is the 4th of July.

170704a

Everyone is proudly displaying the American flag.

170704b

The flag is a symbol of freedom. Freedom to use it as a window curtain. Freedom to acquire and keep things (except when selling).

170704c

The flag encourages you to work harder.

170704d

The freedom to convert a covered patio into a living space and covering the fireplace with the American flag.

170704e

We are grateful the bed was made.

170704f

Happy 4th of July!
