Hop hop hop smash


I would be unable to resist playing Don't Let Your Feet Touch The Burning-Hot Lava if I visited this house. And then I would be kicked out, because -- and I'm good at reading subtle signs like this -- I have a feeling that the owners aren't really "Go ahead and roughhouse, kids!" people.

Thanks, Maura.

I think that's actually the set from the Church Channel.

I so know this house!! I use to live in Des Plaines and it is on a very traveled road. The owners always leave the front door open do that you can look in! The rumor around town is that it belongs to the King of the Gypsies.

I so know this house. I used to live in Des Plaines. This house is on a fairly busy street. The owners ALWAYS leave the front door open so that you can look in as you pass by or are waiting for the light to change. The rumor around town is that it belongs to the King of the Gypsies!

My knee jerk reaction is that this house belongs to somebody of middle eastern heritage and has a "Shah" complex.

Hahahahahahaha... the little rugs are EVERYWHERE!! I love that the new carpet is the kind that hides everything and the pastel pink and white doormats will show everything!
