January 2nd, 2018 · No Comments

Please join me in singing the 8th annual UglyHousePhotos version of the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Everybody join in now. A one, and a two, and a three.
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.

Merry Christmas!!

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.

Who’s On Santa’s Naughty List?

December 12th, 2017 · No Comments

Santa says you’re naughty if you are in a real estate promotional photo. Let’s see who made Santa’s naughty list this year.

This guy. Yes, this full-size face photo was included with the listing. Complete with forehead sweat. No, thank you.

Gross.

She’s lying down but has so much home staging to do. Hurry! Before Santa arrives!

This guy thinks Santa will steal his bike and break into the house.

This naughty boy left the TV on for the real estate photo.

He’s calling his real estate agent to find out why no one is coming to see the house. Because the TV is on, that’s why.

He claims he purposefully staged the table by the front door to put milk and cookies out for Santa.

Uncommon Baby Names

November 22nd, 2017 · 3 Comments

My first name is far and few in between. Here are four more uncommon baby names seen around the Phoenix metro area. Starting with baby Mega.

Here we have baby Eriko. With those stupid camouflaged letters that babies and adults cannot read.

Next we have baby Stryder with those impossible-to-read patterned letters. Please make that trend stop.

And then there’s baby Scotlin.

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.

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.
