Third & Hopefully Last New TV Repair

This is the third time Samsung is coming to repair my new 70" TV. This time they shipped me a new replacement display. When will they replace the whole TV?!? It's obviously a lemon! It's probably gonna have to wait a week or two until it stops working again!

 Removing the old display.

Replacing the circuit board.

Kissing Stella!

46th Annual RAP Home Tour

Today we went on the Riverside Avondale Preservation Home Tour.

We opted for the golf cart tour. Best decision ever!

2245 St. Johns Avenue. This Georgian revival house was built in approximately 1928. It's now the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.


3885 St. Johns Avenue. A beautiful house on a triple lot. It has an attached 2 car garage as well as an unattached 2 car garage. There's also a one bedroom guest cottage & pool on the property. This was my favorite house today.

Filthy Lulu Soap ... "You call me a bitch like it's a bad thing." LOL!

Doggy bedroom under the stairs.

Austin Healey & Ferarri

The regular kitchen with cool old pix displayed on the countertop.

The butler's kitchen.


3681 Pine Street. 1922 Craftsman style bungalow that was renovated & had an addition built on in 2015. The backyard has a beautiful covered deck & outdoor kitchen.


1816 Talbot Avenue is a community event venue. There was a lot of art displayed in the large gathering area.


1806 Edgewood Avenue South. This Mediterranean/Spanish Revival style home was built in 1926. There were 2 artists painting in the front yard.

When the wallpaper was removed, they found a hand-painted mural.

The butler's kitchen.

There was a large beautiful backyard.

1336 Challen Avenue. This one story Spanish Mission style bungalow was built in 1926. This property has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the US Department of the Interior. Every part of the house has been beautifully renovated. Definitely one of my favorites today.

2793 Lydia Street. Built in 1857, Riverside's oldest known building. There was some cool vintage stuff!


2650 Park Street. World famous American architect Addison Mizner designed & built the Sanctuary of Riverside Baptist Church (now known as Riverside Church at Park & King) in 1924.
