Mar 11th, 2017: Das Boot

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, if you move down to Texas you can too.
Yeah I know, it’s not a shoe it’s a boot. With a shoe you have to contend with laces,
but a Texas boot you have to check for snakes in the morning, so I call it a draw.



Of course living here you’d have to close the curtains unless you’re an exhibitionist, it’s going to draw tourists and gawkers.
The boot is in Huntsville Texas and it’s a two-bedroom, one-bath, with granite floors, and a spiral staircase to a roof deck.
The company that built it focuses on recycled and salvaged materials, so I wonder if it smells like feet?
I hope not for $1200 a month.

I may have overstated my temerity's degree of mitigation.

"You're getting the boot."
"But I just got here! How did I get in trouble already?"
"Not THAT kind of boot. Here, lemme show you the guest room..."

There are buildings shaped like everyday items hidden all over the place. Tacoma has the Java Jive, a coffeeshop and bar in a building that's shaped like a giant teapot on the coffeeshop side, or at least it did when I lived there. In one of the small Idaho Panhandle towns, there's a realty office in a similar building to the Java Jive, except its "novelty" half is an old-fashioned miner's helmet & light (which, thank goodness, doesn't light up because it's like 8 feet wide and aimed right at I-90).

Someone interested in novelty buildings should start a thread about them. Those are the only other 2 I've seen with my own eyes.

Just Googled images of "odd houses". The results seem to go on forever. Some are pretty funny!

The upside down houses seems to be a recent fad in the last decade or so, but shoes, barrels, logs, and teapots have been around forever.

I think this line's mostly filler.

The upcoming TV show "American Gods" is based on a book inspired by roadside attractions.

In a doubly-radical alternative kind of move, my house is built in a house shape.
