Lots of funny pictures this week. I was super busy Thursday, an estate sale followed by a vacated rental. Wow, two jobs in one day.

I've heard the phrase that says you can paint a turd gold, but it's still a turd.

But what is someone trying to accomplish by spray painting a toilet gold?

I see Bubba has moved up North or did he come from there?

It's just that sense of pride when they mount the 'throne.'

It was easier to paint it than it would have been to clean it, eh?

They left the other toilet blue, but painted the walls orange.

Bubba was in charge of stairs and flashing. Oh yeah and a bit of wiring.

But the bare wire is only hot when the light switch is on.

Here's my shot of the week. A brand new Cat IV furnace exhaust installed with a dryer vent covering it.

I think the kickout detail uses what Rodale and Co. would call "appropriate technology" or "sustainable design", no?

The pinecones have what duration of warranty?

"I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss" Sir Elton John must have gotten inspiration from a roof like this.

Elton would've caught the croup and died young in this place.

Nobody sits on that moss. It's perpetually wet. I grew up in this climate, never did get that line.
Hey, maybe that's it. He sat on one of those spruce cones and it changed his life forever.
