Last year, I was watching the movie “Nebraska” with my daughter Corey, when I asked her to hit pause for a moment. I jumped up, grabbed a camera and took a picture of the tv screen.
My daughter quietly asked, “Sears House?”
“Montgomery Ward,” I replied.
We continued with our movie.
As mentioned in a prior blog, I can’t just watch movies or television like normal people. I’m forever looking at the architecture. Doesn’t matter if they’re Sears Homes or not, I like looking at houses. When I was single, I kept hoping to find a dating site that featured pictures of men’s homes, rather than their faces. Some things are so much more important than looks. And then I ended up marrying a guy who lived in a concrete filing cabinet for people.
And then we moved to a fine home after we got married.
Shown below is the house I spotted in the movie “Nebraska.” As movies go, it was okay, but pretty slow.
However it did have a nice house. Looks like it might be a Montgomery Ward “Orlando.”

Oh I know for a fact you did not quietly ask your daughter to pause the movie …
I have no doubt you jumped to feet and screamed “STOP! STOP THE MOVIE!”
This is a house in Orlando, Florida interestingly enough…
Is this one an Orlando?
