Two Plungers

September 14th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Two plungers in one bathroom and one of them is a super plunger for really big jobs.  Hmmm.  And a giant trash bag for all the bathroom garbage that will take weeks and months to fill or they produce a lot of trash in the bathroom.   Or they don’t flush non-human materials.  [Fort Morgan, Colorado]

Cold Feet

John’s feet get so hot that he has to stick his feet out the window when he sleeps.  His cat doesn’t seem to mind.  The sheer curtains and the hats on the wall add some flair to the room.
