Aw, I kind of like it

At six years, this house has been on the market longer than any other in Sussex. It’s £200,000, in good shape and has lovely views out the back.

I mean, people do know you can repaint a house, yes?

It is a tribute to his beloved dalmation. Not the current one, the one before. He does continue the polka dot theme inside, but it’s soft furnishings and things the next owner wouldn’t keep.

You can’t please some people.

Looks like it was a store at some time in the past.
Maybe it could be again, to sell to some government doctor here in the states puppies.

Looks aren’t everything; it’s okay with me that it looks like a Dalmatian… even if it’s the dog before last from, say, 30 years ago. The question is does it smell like 30 years of Dalmatian?

But finding a new color of spotted paint will be difficult.
Owing to Gerbil Warning spotted paint is no longer produced in the West and will have to be shipped from Outer East Macadamistan. Produced with all sorts of chemicals known by the State of California to cause cancer in snail darters.

Had to have been a store, look a the top floor and the marquee.

I bet they sold spotted paints until the supply ‘dried up’.

My first thought was “They have Wonder Bread over there?”

I’m drawn to quirky houses, so I like it. It’s probably named Dotty Cottage or something.

It’s called Eliska House, actually. That was the name of his beloved dalmation. He was due to go to Thailand in 2007 on holiday but he couldn’t find anyone to sit her so he stayed home. The hotel he was booked into was destroyed in the tsunami.

There’s a story for you.

It’s got potential.Maybe it’s in a bad neighborhood?

Wow, that’s a great story. I’d love that dog, too.
