Well since I last posted- lots has happened. This has been the week of mishaps ending with Larry getting Food Poisoning.
First let me update you- last Friday Larry heard what might be one of the best excuses for a helper not showing up- BH called and said his ass was on fire and he could not work- can you say gaulded???? Youngsters may know it as Monkey Butt- actually our Atwoods carries Anti Monkey Butt powder- watch out it may be in your Christmas Stocking.
On Tuesday I was over there trying to overcome my fishbowl feeling by getting more used to the lot and all of a sudden BH stepped on a nail, He was bent over and grabbed me and said get it out- I pulled the 2 x 4 with nails out of his foot and asked if he had a tetanus shot, he said no so we sent him off to the base to get one- come to find out he still had 8 years to go on his last one, but it is always better to be safe. Rough week for BH and it was hot as hell- He hung in there like a trooper and I am very appreciative that he helped Larry.
They got the shed all resided, fence is down and stacked. Here is BH working on the fence.The small comment in corner says – See the house, see how close the house is, I hope these nice people don’t look out windows a lot.
This last week has been hot, hot, hot as in 95 – 100 Larry seemed determined to prove he could hack the heat- well he can, better than anyone I know. He has learned to pace himself better which is good.
He has already bled on the shed, so this is now like home, I don’t think we have ever had a project that he has not got his blood on. Must be a rite of passage. Here he is up ladder working on the corner of the shed- you will notice he is very comfortable up the ladder. He also got all the trash piled up, sold some stuff on craig’s list to help pay for he new walk door. Figured out how crooked the roof, well actually the whole building his.He had put the cleats up for the shelves and noticed that anything you put on a shelf would roll East – fast. So a number of blue words later and about an hour and a half of work, they were fixed- in other words they are not crooked to to offset the crooked building.
He made massive amounts of trash and called to have it hauled off, well his old trash hauler had an accident and was in really bad shape so they gave us the name of someone else. Well let’s just say he got it hauled off but it cost a small fortune. Bannon was not a happy camper – but the trash was gone.
So the lot is now cleared, building cut down and rebuilt, we also Kilzed the dog piss side of the shed, works btw… trash is hauled off and concrete is cut- ready to haul. MR will be out soon to break up and haul off the concrete- this will make backyard look much bigger and better. I will post about today’s adventure tomorrow..
