Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.

Hinges & Handles

September 10th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Overkill on the kitchen cabinet hinges and handles. Thank you to our reader Sarah for sending photos of this Laurel, Delaware home.

They need to replace the paper towel roll.

They also need to replace the toilet paper roll.

And replace those ugly, dusty couches.

Fresh paint will help here.

New windows and fresh paint here too.

Walk-In Tub

September 9th, 2017 · No Comments

Walk-in tubs are advertised with the elderly in mind. Easy to enter and exit. Safer. But what about the reality of using one? You can’t fill the tub until the door is closed and you can’t open the door when the tub is filling or filled. Therefore, you must enter the tub when it is empty. Do you disrobe before entering or after? Then you are left naked (and possibly cold) while the tub fills up. By then, you’re probably bored. After bathing, you must wait naked while the tub drains. Shiver, shiver.

In this bathroom, where do you put your clothes or robe or the towel? No towel bars or hooks nearby.

The seat/bench has a scoop in it so you can use the hand-held shower to clean your undercarriage while sitting.

Tornado In Kingman?

September 8th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Did a tornado or hurricane hit this Kingman, Arizona house? Good grief.

What happened?

Really?

Disaster scene.

???

This is a different fireplace than the one in the above photo.

What happened up there?

Messy bedroom with a hole in the ceiling.

Another hole in the ceiling.

And now an even bigger hole!

Explain that! The Kool-Aid guy visited?

Tanks, but no tanks. We’ll pass.

2017-2018 Football Season Is Officially Here

September 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

The 2017-2018 NFL season kicks off tonight. Which team will win the Super Bowl in 2018?

The Arizona Cardinals?

I mean, people go bananas for the Cardinals.

The Oakland Raiders? Or will they take a bath this year?

The Dallas Cowboys?

Dallas Cowboys: America’s team.

Go, Cowboys!

That about sums it up for the Cowboys. People either fear them or loathe them.

Or the Baltimore Ravens? This seller likes the Ravens and the Cowboys.

Let’s Do the Twist

September 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

At least they’re not knotted. There was a time when cabana curtains were very popular in the Phoenix area, to give a resort feel to a back patio. However, the reality was that it’s very dusty and sunny in Phoenix. The curtains got dirty, they stained easily, and the color faded unevenly.

What were mattress companies thinking back in the day with that horrible urine-yellow color? Or maybe they were actually very clever!

Mirror, mirror, on the floor. Who’s the fairest house of all?

Wall to ceiling to wall wood paneling.

Some bleach and this bathroom could be cute.

Indoor pool! With mirrored ceiling!

Movie set for Cocoon 3?
