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.

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.

Happy Halloween!

October 31st, 2017 · 1 Comment

Happy Halloween! Watch out for giant spiders in Phoenix. “…It’ll be dark soon and they mostly come at night. Mostly.”

The beagle dog is scared of the witches.

Watch out for black cats.

Cowboy pumpkin. Or is that a country bumpkin pumpkin?

Trick or treat.

The joke(r)’s on you.

A Pile of Rocks

October 3rd, 2017 · 6 Comments

I saw this on a Realtor home tour last week. Right off the patio in the back yard is a wire cage filled with rocks, wrapped in Christmas lights, plus a vine growing around it. Because?

Full House

July 23rd, 2017 · 11 Comments

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.

170723richmondtx01

Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.

170723richmondtx02

Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.

170723richmondtx03

We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.

170723richmondtx04

Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.

170723richmondtx05

Sorry again for the nudity.

170723richmondtx06

Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.

170723richmondtx07

Here’s another view of this room.

170723richmondtx14

All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.

170723richmondtx08

The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.

170723richmondtx09

Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.

170723richmondtx10

Wonderful life. Fun.

170723richmondtx11

He’s counting all of the overhead lights.

170723richmondtx12

It’s Christmas year ’round.

170723richmondtx13

The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.

170723richmondtx15

Shoes are lined up on the stairs.

170723richmondtx16

Beware of pickpockets and loose women.

170723richmondtx17

Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.

170723richmondtx18

He’s waiting to join you in the shower.

170723richmondtx19

The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

Happy Fourth of July!!

July 4th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Today is the 4th of July.

170704a

Everyone is proudly displaying the American flag.

170704b

The flag is a symbol of freedom. Freedom to use it as a window curtain. Freedom to acquire and keep things (except when selling).

170704c

The flag encourages you to work harder.

170704d

The freedom to convert a covered patio into a living space and covering the fireplace with the American flag.

170704e

We are grateful the bed was made.

170704f

Happy 4th of July!
