    This made me laugh. At least I can gauge the timeline to see that they've now done nine homes (not counting Mina's) in roughly 10 months. That's a lot!

    No place is a place to leave kids without watching them, but yeah, a pool has to be the worst place. We had a customer literally leaving the store one day through one of the vestibule doors (one on each end of the front entry) and one of her toddlers was on the other end, obliviously playing with something. We actually had to yell at the woman to not leave the store without collecting her child. Parents will walk several feet ahead of their very young kids. I'm just flabbergasted by it. I guess one gets accustomed to their kid always following them...?

    I don't understand why they demolished the interior plaster-lathed walls that weren't going to be moved. I just can't see how it's better to destroy superior craftsmanship and replace it with cheaply made materials. Them tearing out the old wood window framing and sills was heart wrenching, too. They kept—and freaking spray painted—one door. Destruction of architectural history under the guise of "transition" is also gentrification. As usual, the light fixtures were HIDEOUS.

    These are great! I heard Ronald Reagan meow in the background. 😹

    I thought the burger looked like a Big Mac, like someone on the restaurant staff had gone to buy and re-serve it because they didn't have the ingredients--like buns--to make a burger. Dale telling Christine not to give his daughter her (Christine's) phone because she was going to "post pictures of her 'titties' on the internet...Twitties!" cracked me up. He's such a jackass, but the one-liners on this show take me out. Is it me or does it look like the makeup crew might be doing something weird with "Dale's" nose now? It's distracting. It looks longer/more hooked. "Chip" and "Dale" used to look identical except for their hairstyles. Dale's mullet is something else.

    My now-15-year-old Civic's color is "Rallye Red" (why the e? I don't know). I didn't particularly mean to pick red; it was the cheapest car the dealership had (manual drive, too!) and I was desperate. She's been awesome, and I love her. Her name is Scarlett O'Cara.

    Nooooo!!! That poor frog! Why did I click on the spoiler?!? I was warned! Time to brick over the back entry, @Mindthinkr! We occasionally had HUGE black snakes in our yard when I was growing up in the home my folks still live in. My mom always said, "It's just a harmless black snake." We also had garter snakes. I don't want ANY snakes, "harmless" or otherwise! I keep thinking of things and editing... I have no problem with frogs and salamanders/lizards/newts and will even pick them up. Snakes, though--be gone, devil creatures!

    How is the new owner supposed to get the fish bowls out of the macrame to clean them?? They didn't look gently suspended by a few pieces of moveable yarn; they looked pretty tightly interwoven. What a ludicrous idea.

    I get customers who don't bathe or use deodorant and then some that smell like they broke the bottle of cologne over their head. I'm not sure which is worse. Then there are the ones that REEK of pot so much that I imagine a cloud envelopes them like that of Pigpen of Peanuts fame. The stench lingers for 15 minutes after they leave. I really, really don't care if you smoke. I do care if I have to smell it and it smells like a pack of skunks ran through the place.

    I'm already tired of the heat. I've lived in NC all my life and I've never gotten used to it. It was 94° yesterday evening when I went to the pharmacy. It's now 90°, but "feels like" 99°. The air conditioning barely works at my store, so I sweat my ass off all day. Can't wait to do that for eight hours later today. I'm ready for October.

    Today is Little Mama's (aka Lexi's) fourth birthday! Happy birthday to this beautiful, aloof old soul, and gentle but fierce mother. She takes great care of Little Girl and me.

    Yikes! The listing price has been incrementally dropped by $90K. So much for them making a profit on that project.

    My childhood home/my parents' home is only 1,100 square feet, but has a kitchen the size of Karen's designed townhome, an adjacent dining area (shared space), a living room, three bedrooms, two baths and a walk-in laundry. My parents eventually enclosed the covered, fully attached carport and made it a garage, which also houses a walk-in storage closet. Two thousand square feet is a lot of space. It just doesn't seem like the original framing was very well planned.

    Karen's designed kitchen was as small as mine, and I live in an 800-square-foot apartment. I don't understand why they didn't reframe some of the downstairs area in both townhomes to make bigger kitchens/dining/living rooms. I'd expect that people buying 2,000-square-foot+ homes want big kitchens and common areas. The stencils on the bar wall were hideous. That mustachioed hipster real estate agent looked like he just rolled out of bed and put on a hoodie to go see the townhomes.
