Park Ridge Ranch

It was a tidy three-bedroom ranch in Park Ridge. This lamp was just inside the entryway. I should have bought it.

Found in one of the bedrooms. Someone had a thing for portraits of dogs.

Hanging on an adjacent wall. Someone really had a thing for portraits of dogs.

The kitchen, which hadn't been touched since some time in the seventies. Note the juxtaposition of wallpaper and floor covering, and the faux-Colonial lamp.

An unfortunately blurry photo of just one corner of a sad little TV room off the kitchen, with tons of videos and DVDs of crime and horror films.

Purchased: Eight LPs from the '60s for $.50 each; an unworn blue polo shirt from the '70s.
