Seemingly innocuous feature flyer for a home in Danville, California, right?  Look closer.  The photographer snapped a photo of two dogs making love.

Here’s another photo with taxidermy to add to my collection.  This one features a javelina (Arizona’s version of a wild boar).  There is also an animal skin on the wall and an animal cage to the left.

Dilapidated Phoenix Home

August 30th, 2008 · No Comments

This fixer-upper home in Phoenix is in such bad shape that even investors weren’t touching it.  Here are photos from the several times it was up for sale.

A few months later they had to add another support beam to hold up the porch.  Too bad the beam was placed directly into dirt; now it’s considered earth-to-wood contact which is an invitation for termites.

Isn’t the siding pretty?  Do you like the graffiti too?

It eventually sold for pennies.
