Soft Parking

June 10th, 2014 · 5 Comments

I see a whole lotta concrete for parking.  They must have preferred softer ground instead.

It’s hot in Phoenix, so many people park cars in the shade.  Yet for a real estate promotional photo, you’d think…

And from the driveway as well.  Thank you.

Mop

They’ve had that mop for a long time.  New ones are white.  They’ve also had that roof for a long time.  Yes, those are turtles in the window sill.

Not a good first impression.  Oil stains everywhere on the driveway.  Hubcap missing.  Extra tire lying around.
