    to heck with the door. dig those rocking gold veined mirror squares!

  2. Delia says:

    Open the door … for your Mystery Date!

    (1960s board game aimed at teenage girls)

  3. Anthony O'Neill says:

    Thanks for the clarification, I thought it was the back door.

  4. Walky says:

    That Louis XVI table is going to end so bad after a week of door-opening.

  5. Jimbo says:

    Stop laughing!! The poor soul is obviously reduced to being “all dressed up and no place to go” until someone can turn the doorknob for her……seeing as how she has no hands……and one leg.

  6. Karyn says:

    “I scrubbed the blood off the wall and the door. You stand in front of it and I’ll get the Polaroid. Then we can see if it still shows up.”

  7. Supurbia says:

    Is someone peering through the oval in the door?

  8. rebekah says:

    “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.” PERFECT caption AFP! ROFL!!!

  9. Jeff says:

    A – DOOR – able.

    (I can’t believe no one else thought of that…)

  10. Tina says:

    PHEW! Glad she clarified that I was worried it might be that back door and I was all sorts of turned around.

  11. Rita says:

    Is that a couch *right* by the front door? I guess you could literally walk right in and sit right down, lol.

    • esackman says:

      yes, that is a couch “right” by the front door, but you couldn’t just walk right in and sit down, as the front of the couch is facing away from whatever that other piece of furniture in the photo is, you’d have to walk in, then walk around the end of the couch, before you could sit down, unless you’d like to sit on the back of the couch.

    • Karla says:

      LOL! Now that old song is going through my head! “Walk right in, sit right down…”

  12. Swimming against the tide says:

    That is old lady decor and old lady handwriting. The girl is posing for Grandma but the door gets top billing. That’s old lady logic.

    • last laugh says:

      you are absolutely right. that’s me in the photo. but i get the last laugh, because, having inherited the house, it really IS my front door now. ps. two legs.

  13. Tim says:

    Sure, you all laugh now. But if your front door ever ran off, you’d wish you had the foresight to take a picture you so could make “missing” posters to staple onto telephone poles.

  14. pittipat says:

    That woman wasn’t there when the photographer took the picture! Ghost girl!

  15. Dee says:

    Yeah, you should see the “back door” *wink wink*

  16. Legacy says:

    I think she handed this to unwanted guests and said “Use it.”

  17. Inkcap says:

    Lisa, as a married woman, showed that she was ready to contribute at the adult level by installing a regulation-sized door.

    • SaraBerry says:

      Ahhh, I LOVE it when Marney finds her way into unrelated photo threads! I wish I could see her reaction to how famous she is on here…. X-D

  18. Gori says:

    What’s troublin’ me, apart from that being a lot of furniture in a very small corner, is the scary edge of person/person shadow on the far right – apparently floating above the sideboard thingy!

  19. Jenny says:

    She must have listed her house on the market, I’d love to see the other doors, doors are usually what sells a house. All on 1 leg!!!

  20. Fatdad says:

    From the looks of things the place must be HUGE and sign posts are necessary to find your way around.

  21. jane says:

    I just want to cross her “t” in her caption…I’m so distracted by it.

  22. Inkcap says:

    Her father demanded that she show her new boyfriend the door.

  23. carol says:

    It’s as good a place to start as anywhere!

  24. NKL says:

    NeVEr Too soon to start planning for the possibility of senility!

  25. Alan says:

    The whole awkwardness ‘hinged’ on the caption.

  26. Babs says:

    This was a first in the series. you should see the stack of polaroids she had by the time she made it to the back door. Not to mention how exhausted she was doing it all on just one leg.

  27. Mah says:

    Wouldn’t her fancee front door smash into that, um, buffet thing?

  28. Mootsie says:

    Oooh shut the front door!

  29. ginger85 says:

    Why do I feel like this photo is haunting?

  30. steve says:

    This is my front door. Please don’t let it hit you on your way out.

  31. David says:

    thought she was missing a leg. awkward.

  32. LKT says:

    Whew! I am so glad she clarified THAT for me!

  33. MeToo says:

    Was “her front door” her prom date?

  34. Derek says:

    Reminds me of the movie Memento. Maybe she carried around the polaroid and used it to verify that, yes indeed, she was in her own home.

  35. Lisa says:

    That is a fine, er, front door.

  36. babytoes says:

    You must be so proud……

  37. Pat Cummings says:

    Yup, that’s it alright.

  38. Jo says:

    I guess for some reason she is very proud of her front door!

    • Jen says:

      One can only assume this is from a set of pictures of a new home. In that context, it makes perfect sense. Out of context…hilarious. 🙂

  39. NarcissusShrugged says:

    It is a heck of a door, I’ll say that for it.

    • Walky says:

      Yeah, that couch wouldn’t have fit through the window. A new house is no good without a nice couch!

      Thank you, Superdoor!

  40. Adam B. says:

    As seen with chandelier and floral pattern couch… very modern indeed.

  41. Tennille says:

    It’s always good to know where one’s front door is. I don’t think enough people include their front doors in their photos.

    • Rory Byron says:

      From the placement of the furniture, and the
      proximity of each piece to the others, I would guess
      that the photograper was standing at the back door.
