Yessir, Mr. President ...

Amazing. After years of some, um, shall we say, less-than-loving neighbor interactions, Grady has just been elected President of the newly formed road association. Of course, I'm sure certain less-than-loving neighbors didn't vote for him but - as we've found most folks on the street to be good peeps - he got enough votes to win.

Ah, the Smell of Septic in the Morning ...

Ok, technically, it was afternoon. I worked from home last Wednesday. Of course, I happened to pick the day that Grady was having the septic tank pumped. He claims it didn't smell at all in the back yard - but the vents definitely sent a lovely aroma into the house. Well, at least our septic tank is all nice-n-clean now ... the septic guys said they didn't think it had ever been pumped. Heck, it's only been 50+ years.

New Washer & Dryer ...

The new set arrived last week. Grady hooked them up Saturday ... so that meant today was laundry day.

Closin' the Closet Project ...

For now, anyway. Doors went up today ...


The 'Guest Room' ...

A place for the jackets ...

Oh sure, they need trim and paint ... but it's better than the curtain that was hanging there before.
