Well another day of painting down and today to go - We painted 1 coat in the master bedroom. I primed the kitchen as it had dark cayenne spice color on bottom of kitchen rail. I also re-caulked all the seams between countertop and walls. I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. |
Second coat will go up today of the bedroom and I will paint a coat in the kitchen. If I have time will fix the window seams in the master and put up window blinds. We used curtains but they are heavy and made the room "feel" small. We had to spackle where the curtains were attached and primed.
Doc - we also had sausage gravy and biscuits - but from Hardees....it was ok but I am betting dollars to donuts yours were much better!!!
Have a good day all!

While in Staples one day a gentleman was there waiting on prints. When they came out I saw them and wanted to ask about them. So struck up a conversation. Turned out the prints were of his original photo - of his father. His father was flying a Corsair as part of the black sheep squadron. Another pilot took the picture from his plane. He was quite proud of his father.

Just ducking in for a few secs to make sure you guys are being good. And I found out something....when everyone is good on here, there's nothing fun to read LOL |
Lannie, I hear you about the clean spots on the carpet. A number of years ago, I bought an automatic carpet spot cleaner that just sits with its mouth over the spot and does all the work for you--sprays on liquid, scrubs it with a rotating brush and then sucks it all up again. I finally gave it away--it did a really good job, so good that it left little CLEAN circle all over the carpet. Which looked just about as bad as the original spot.
So....time for bed. Indoor swimming pool tomorrow...here I come.

- he sanded his training wall, and dad instructed him on priming.
- mini basement water problem, got drainage experts scheduled for next week
- have to bust up the basement washroom, remove shower stall...
- some idiot used the only floor drain, for the shower
- Property Insurance wants a "back flow valve" installed...within 2 months
- so many old armature screw ups, to make right
Former JJ wasn't reliable (weekend party focused) // now carpenter Johnny showing similar signs of lazy (late start/early quit) - I think its the younger generation,
new "lack of" work ethic.
- nobody wants to work, even 40 hours a week anymore & extra on weekends
- so start at 10:30 instead of 8 o'clock
- no wonder they still renting a house, and dream of being big business or property owners
When we bought our 1st house / Beau held down a 40 hour Technical job plus Sat/Sunday doing body work (on farm), was a no brain'er...going 60 hours/week, to get ahead.

Kenny all I can remember is that it was a single engine plane and it's model started with an S but I'll watch for it--they show little dabs of previous shows at the beginning and end of the main program--and the gave the name and manufacturer of the the plane yesterday too.

The third ingedient for the deskunker is water and DON'T try to store the stuff EVER! And only the freshly made up batch will be effective for deskunking.
Oy vey--trying to protect Denny from herself is practically a full time job.

I know peroxide mixed with dish soap and another ingredient is a very effective cleaning agent for a skunky dog. You can find it on the K-State website. Had to utilize it twice with Axel.
It worked best the first incident. He didn't get a direct hit.
Direct hit second time was a hard one.
Got to keep the concoction away from their eyes and nose and dispose of the leftovers as it is combustible when stored. He stunk up the house for 2 straight months with just his face stinking!

Is she camera shy?

We live and die it the clinic with hydrogen peroxide--buy it by the six pack--set up the bottles with spray caps and use it on all the surgical drapes and towels. We treat anything that has blood on it and then wash it with a heavy dose of OxiClean and the blue Chlorox laundry detergent--makes stuff that you thought was only going to be good for throwing away look like new.

I always laugh when you guys get to talking about the minutia of nuts and bolts (and other stuff automotive that make you all drool) but I guess I'm no better and I always feel obliged to report stuff like this to the CT. |
So last night I was looking for something to watch after the early evening news. Last year about this time I found (on one of the back channels on over the air TV ) a short series of one hour programs on car restorations--most of them were racing types but they were taking beat cars that had been classic--stuff they found in behind the trailer park or in the old barn--and restoring them.)
So the one I found is now called Ultimate Restorations (it's on PBS here) and it's evidently a series because last week when I was looking for something to watch I found them restoring a WWII plane--a fighter I think and of course I can't remember what kind it was but a pretty rare one even during WWII. This week they were restoring a steam locomotive--the Sierra 3--evidently well known because it was used for years by the movie folk in westerns. I think the shows are hour long but I came in in the middle and they had this steam locomotive stripped down to it's frame and were starting to put it back together. They had rebuilt the whole steam plant and were testing the boiler for leaks (first couple of tries it leaked everywhere). I find this kind of stuff fascinating so I'll be watching more of it.
I know that one of the programs is a restoration of a steam clipper--man those ships were BIG. Anyway--that's my news of the week on TV.
