What I thought was going to be an easy 2-3 day job ended up taking 8 days, six of them actual work and 2 waiting for a replacement part for the HLVP kit. Some small repairs fixing a couple of decorative in the wood. Some boards were loose in a couple of places and that was done quick with screws.

The previously painted deck will need a retouch because Low Pressure or not, I managed to get speckles of white paint on it. In my defense, we had 20-30 mph breezes all week yesterday that screwed the pooch, but kept the heat down.  This week? Damn, it is Florida all right.  I figure it will take me an hour to re-paint it and, voila!

I will be officially done with the rear of the house tomorrow and other than water the lawn a bit (It has not rained squat!) nobody is allowed to go in the back till the Real State agent starts showing the house. Pigeons will be met with extreme prejudice.

Front of the house this weekend since the missus will lend a hand and all the smarts.  Hopefully next week I get to work and finish inside where the AC is a blessing.

I need a vacation. A shooting one.

  1. Whoa, that back yard looks steep. If you trip in the back yard, do you roll in the lake ?

  2. Too hot for ya?, roll on up here to midland michigan, its 48 and raining. Bring a jacket.
