Boxing Day

December 26th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Today is Boxing Day in Canada. Last year, we posted a photo of a punching bag to celebrating boxing. But some Canadian readers said we got it wrong. This year, we’re posting photos of boxes. We hope we get it right this time. Happy Boxing Day!

This Phoenix home has lots and lots of boxes. They really know how to celebrate Boxing Day!

Since they’re selling the house and since it’s Boxing Day today, they should box up all the books and movies.

Cluttered bathroom.

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.

Two vacuums on display in Gilbert, Arizona.  Yesterday we featured a grim reaper with a scythe.  Today we see a scythe.  Should we call the vacuum a grim sweeper?
