Spill the Beings?

March 29th, 2017 · 3 Comments

What is that giant stain on the carpet? What spilled there? Blood? Motor oil?

170329a

Did it run toward the wall or did come from under the wall?

170329b

Similar stain in another room. Creepy. This wasn’t a one-off. More like two people were “offed.”

170329c

From another room in the same house. Shots fired?

Please do not urine on the toliet seat. Thank you very much. We aim to please; you aim too, please.

We don’t make this stuff up, folks. These are actual photos from a house for sale. Check out the hole in the wall behind the toilet.

170124a

Cluttered bedroom.

The new buyer gets to handle all of this.

This bedroom is used as a crafts room. Notice the Wasp & Hornet Killer spray can.

Double oven.

Pink ceiling in the family room. It almost looks like carpet! Two oxygen tanks in the corner, because this house will take your breath away.

No smoking.

170124j

And we’re told the air conditioning does not work.

170124k

The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 4 Comments

This Phoenix fixer could be worth $500,000 in San Diego.  Notice the roof and wrong type of paint.

Remember the window with the sideways board; I’ll refer to it later.

Artificial grass turf carpeting everywhere!  No need to waste water on real grass.

Sleeping Porch

April 18th, 2016 · No Comments

Back in the day, before air conditioning, Arizonans survived the summer heat by sleeping outdoors on sleeping porches.  Sometimes they placed wet sheets in open windows or on porches to create cooler air.  Sometimes, as we see at this Wickenburg, Arizona home, they crack holes in the window panes to let air to flow in.
