Please Define What “Newer” Means

May 29th, 2017 · No Comments

This photo’s caption reads, “Newer built-in micro(wave) and plenty of counter space.” The house was built in 1989 and that sure looks like the original microwave & oven. So….28 years old = newer?

Let’s Play Ball!

April 3rd, 2017 · No Comments

Yesterday was the first official day of the 2017 Major League Baseball season, but 2/3s of the games start today.

Somewhat ironic that you typically use a baseball bat to hit a piñata and here we have an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball player piñata.

Time For a Shower

October 24th, 2016 · 3 Comments

Either the seller staged the shower to look like it’s ready to use (soaps, scrub pad, toothpaste, leg shaver) or they actually use it in this condition.  I like how far the handle is located into the shower, thus guaranteeing your arm (& probably your head or shoulder) will get wet when you turn it on.
