On the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Twelve crates for milkin’…

Eleven detergent bottles…

Ten rocks a sittin’…

Nine hats a hangin’…

Eight more hats a hangin’…

Seven cans of Ensure…

Six lawn jockeys…

Five bed pans…

Four milk jugs…

Three stuffed deer…

Two Harley bikes…

And a partridge in a bird cage.

Santa’s Vacation Home In Arizona

December 21st, 2017 · 3 Comments

Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus enjoy the warm winter weather in Glendale, Arizona. They love having a Christmas tree.

Mrs. Claus made a Christmas wreath for the bathroom. She is mad at Santa for not putting out a new roll of toilet paper or replacing the light bulbs.

Sticker shock in the other bathroom.

Here is Santa’s man cave.

Their master bedroom.

Their guest bedroom. They haven’t had many guests lately. Notice the cobwebs.

Spare bedroom. Mrs. Claus has been meaning to finish those drapes.

The wallpaper gives their kitchen a homey feel.

Santa is offering a hand (and an arm) with the laundry.

A Roof Over Their Heads

December 19th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Foreclosure home. At least they had somewhere to sleep and a roof over their heads.

Looking at this room from the other direction. The protective grille for the fan is on the floor. Be careful.

One bedroom. With drywall cut up from the ground. That usually implies water damage.

Second bedroom.

Third bedroom.

Fourth bedroom.

Toilet tank lid is missing in the bathroom.

What happened to the chairs? Scratching posts for cats?

The kitchen from the opposite view.

Bonus room with yet another different type of flooring.

May the new owners fill the pool with water and the home with memories.

See-Through Storage Shed

December 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

So they’ve secured their items in a storage shed on their patio. But isn’t the point of a shed to keep the items hidden from view? Now they have a cluttered patio with a giant cage.

Seven Messy Bedrooms

November 17th, 2017 · No Comments

The stuffed bear is just hanging around this messy bedroom.

A gun on the wall and two masks. Bank robbery in the works?

Dark and cluttered.

The walls are mostly clutter free but the rest of the room…

Banjo and guitar on the wall plus more visual distractions.

Two rolls of toilet paper in this bedroom.

Make the bed and put away the clothes, please.

Five Dirty Bathrooms

November 16th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Look at the dirt and hair on the vanity counter. Then look at the shower floor. Yuk.

Let’s start with the mirror and the shower door, thank you.

Don’t let the tile pattern distract you from the soap scum and rust.

A good cleaning is needed here.

Dirty bathroom in Vlissingen, The Netherlands. Their idea of “going Dutch” is different from ours.

Possibilities

November 13th, 2017 · No Comments

Don’t judge a book by its cover just yet. It could look better inside.

Well…maybe not inside either. The oven door is missing.

The vinyl floor tiles are a’peeling.

The young man does not seem bothered that the bedroom could use some tidying up.

At least the flooring is nicer here than in the kitchen.

We pan one more time to the right.

Lots of storage space on the covered patio.

More storage.

Spacious yard.

The Nightmare Before Halloween

November 12th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Twas the night before Halloween and all through this house, creatures were stirring, including a mouse?

Now let’s take a look inside this Great Bend, Pennsylvania house. [Thank you to KG for sending us these photos]
Here we see a pack of cigarettes and an ashtray, plus sugary breakfast cereals.

Ashtray in the bathroom.

There is a child’s toilet in the living room! Dad is paralyzed with indecision: should he remove the toilet first or the Halloween balloon or unblock the front door?

And there’s the child! A little big for that training toilet. He seems sad. Perhaps because he’s not allow access to the balloons?

Party like it’s 1999. Or 1979.

Sorry, but that planking fad ended three years ago.

Band practice.

Like father like son. A drum set in the boy’s bedroom.

Cluttered kitchen.

Enclosed patio with dog and clutter.

For All In Tents & Purposes

November 10th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Yes, a tent on the front yard. Right in front. Everyone can see it. The neighbors love it.

So much to offer.

The junk in front is an affront.

Side view of the front porch.

The living room.

We pan to the right to see more.

More to the right.

One more time to the right. And it just isn’t right.

A scary looking dog is guarding the precious belongings out back.

Bars on the windows.

Swimming pool included.

And they’ll throw in the BBQ grill too.
