My First Open House Guest

My First Open House Guest

I had an open house this weekend and my very first visitor was already there when I opened up.

Unfortunately, as I was setting up my signs another car followed me in so I couldn't really "oust" the first guest.

Then, right on the heels of their departure, a FAMILY came in and then I really got worried my first guest was overstaying their welcome.

Sure, everyone was sort of glad to see the first guest, and all the visitors pulled out their camera to catch that celebrity shot, but deep down inside, I really wanted my special guest to leave.

It turned out that the family included a REALTOR, as well as a Knight in Shining Armour, and Mr. Knight showed my guest the door for me...

One can handle only so many simultaneous guests at an open house.

It was just a baby anyway...

And that was just a baby?  Oh dear!  I'm thinking Arizona may not be for me.  LOL!  What great second guests you had!

Carla...well I did ZOOM in...he was only about 2.5 inches around or so.  They walk so dainty as they go, sticking their legs out...

Laura - Yeah, I was searching my brain trying to remember if they "jump" or not.  I know some folks have them as pets, but I was just worrying that a fireplace "shovel" just wasn't going to be long enough for my comfort...  

Emmary - yeah, excellent!  My listing was just too large!  It was hoping for something a big more cosy, like you said!

Baby or an Adult... either way that thing would be SQUISHED as soon as I saw it. Of course, it looks pretty darn big from the picture. Perhaps my shoe would not be big enough to squish it. I'd hate for it to grab my foot.

Hi Lottie!  There was a "fireplace set" complete with shovel.  He got the little guy to crawl up on it and took him outside and deposited him over the fence.  I knew I was going to have to do it myself, so I was pretty grateful.  I KNOW some folks have them as pets, but it still would have been very un-nerving!
