It's been a good ride so far!

Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

This Ain't No Crack House! Not yet anyway!

Well for those of you who love to follow the homes that we come across and fix up and flip, then this one will be of particular interest to you. First I took you on the journey of the home in Phoenix that was just a total shit hole that we turned in to a gorgeous home to raise a family, diving pool and all.

Then you guys may remember the home that had been gutted and every thing stolen from it. When I say EVERYTHING stolen, I mean EVERYTHING. They took the old electrical lines because they were made of copper, they took the old plumbing because that was made of copper, the furnace, the a/c, the windows and yes, they even took the pool. Ring a bell now?

Well this time we are not fixing and flipping, nor have we found our client a crack house to fix up and move in. This time, we weren't even looking to sell anyone a house and they weren't looking to buy a house. Our friends had come down for the holidays and they own a home here in AZ that they have used for the last few years as a getaway and their spring trip down to ride during our traditional ANTI- ARIZONA Bike Week time. They also came down to get that home ready to go on the market. Diane listed the house for sale and I've got to tell you, it is a beautiful home. We wanted to take them around, look at 10 houses or so and give them an idea of what is on the market for the money that they want to spend. With this market here in AZ and all the foreclosures over the past few years, home values and the the deals are like nothing you have ever seen. Imagine getting a million dollar or million and a half dollar home for less than a third of its value? Well that is how it is here these days. If you have ever wanted to own a vacation home or an investment property in the Southwest, NOW IS THE TIME. So the next to last home that we looked at on this day stunned us to say the very least! As we pulled up to it, I looked at Diane and she at I and at the same time, we each said and I quote, "holy fucking shit". The value of this home, compared to the asking price was incredible. We left, looked at another home and then went to dinner but none of us could stop thinking and talking about this home. A few days later, an hour before they had to catch their flight home, we went back and looked at it again. When we arrived, the front of the home was lined up with Range Rovers and the driveway had a Range Rover and an Escalade parked in it. Ut oh, they are going to buy it and we will not be able to get it. Now it went from a warm thought of owning the home to these sons a bitches are going to buy our home!!! Well Diane and I were not about to let that happen, if our friends want this house, by damn they are going to get it, so we jumped in to action...... NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT IS NOW THEIR HOME! So check it out.

Once they allow all the dirty ass bikers they hang out with to start coming to the new home, with any luck, we can turn this one in to a crack house!

Until we see each other on the road again,

Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your Ass!

Your friend,
Jack Shit
