Around Town

What I saw on a recent drive around town.

Cool sky
Decorative bridge over a dry creek bed.
An older home on the market looking for love.

Those home renovation shows on tv are magical. I love watching them transform an uninhabitable home into a stunner within the hour. Do you watch these shows too? I wish Hollywood would come make over this place. It looks like it was once a real gem. I wish I had the carpentry skills and know how to tackle a project like this myself.

      I do too, Chris! It’s sad to see it boarded up. It’s right next to a delicious hole in the wall Mexican restaurant/counter, next to the railroad tracks too. Might be hard to sell in that way. But it’s a beautiful home from what I can see from the outside.

        Yeah, the location is kind of difficult but it might be a good deal for someone who doesn’t have a lot of money but is handy with a hammer. It kind of reminds me of some homes we saw in New Orleans. I likew that style. Have a great one. Take care

      Me too! I would love to watch them transform this place. It looks like it has great potential! BTW John, a Wilson look-a-like moved into the neighborhood. I’ll have to see if I can get a photograph for you. He’s on their front porch!

      Right! The renovations take a long while, I imagine, but they piece snippets of the process together and share the results in a 1 hour broadcast. Kind of like a time lapse. I’m not sure I’m explaining it clearly. It’s very satisfying and entertaining to see a disaster of a project transform into an enviable property in a short time. I hope you are doing well out your way!

      Thank you so much Mark! Yes, HGTV is on regularly around here too. It’s comforting to watch all the disasters cleaned up and improved beyond recognition in a short amount of time. Happy endings always. Speaking of endings, Happy Friday Bro!

    That house needs some love. And the blue is quite lovely.

    I do like watching those shows but when we are here in Pennsylvania we are always updating. (Older home) This could be the first summer we are not!

      I’m happy to hear you have a relaxing summer ahead! If ever there was a summer to take it as easy as possible…

      Thank you for visiting Nancy! I hope you are healthy and happy in Pennsylvania!

    I’m crazy about those shows! Home Town and Fixer Upper are the best. They have inspired me so much I feel like I am handy and am actually thinking about buying an old farmhouse to renovate!! Probably way more than I can handle but I might go for it!

      Oh wow! That sounds great! I love those and also Good Bones. I need to find another way to enjoy them though. We downsized our cable pkg and I didn’t realize we were losing this station in the transition. 😦
      I hope your dream of owning farmhouse is realized! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me. Take good care!
