Supervisor to apprentice: “Ok, you’re up, this one’s all yours and remember how I taught you to measure accurately. We don’t want any call backs on this one. And if it’s too overwhelming for you, I just spoke with the owner, who states that he is the last living relative of the Flintstones, and he has the original plans.”
“Wood paneling, $1,000. Dream catcher, $20. Hand stitched eagle comforter, $9. Sharing those private moments with your loved one, priceless.”

Given a rural assignment with a legal description instead of an address, I called the lady to get directions. She gave me the names of several roads and how to traverse them, and then told me to turn on "The Dirt Road" to get to her house. I followed her instructions and to my surprise and enjoyment I did indeed come to "The Dirt Road"! No wonder the lender used the legal; he thought there was a mistake in her home address!

Austin has become a drain and Texas is sinking. Question is, "What is Texas sinking about?"
“Nope, still no tax refund.”
Instructor Erik Nafobyia leads the class in the "I've got a spider on my back" dance, a routine common after attic and crawl space inspections. This version is appropriate for forms 1004, 1073, and 1025. For the 1004C, a version developed in West Texas is preferred. It is initiated by a scream of "snake" in the falsetto voice of a 9 year old girl, this is quickly followed by a vigorous beating of the head against the undercarraige of the subject property, thereby dislodging spiders, scorpions, and centipedes which sought refuge from the sun there. Once these refugees are firmly attached and evenly distributed over the head, neck and back, the appraiser shimmies into the open where he/she flails and yelps like a salt-shot dog and commences a heavy metal version of the "spider on my back" dance.
