The life of an appraiser-a wacky look at 2013 in pictures

With 2013 behind us I thought I would take a break from statistics and appraisal procedures to visit a lighter side of the life of an appraiser. I thought I would share with you some funny pictures I have collected over the past year during my appraisal inspections. I hope they make you laugh as much as they did me.

Excuse me, I should have knocked first- I usually knock before I go into rooms but I probably would have disturbed this cat quenching its thirst. No kisses from kitty today.

Excuse me, what did I just see?- At first I got a little freaked out finding two coffins in an attic of an old house I was appraising, but realizing Halloween had just passed I assumed this was part of their decorations…I think.

Alabama is famous for its wildlife- Alabama has all kinds of wildlife, including bears. I’m not sure why someone chose to put  this stuffed bear up in a tree but it made for an interesting day.
