    Painting the shop

    I have not worked off a ladder in 20 years and Saturday and Sunday I primed and finished coated the outside of the shop behind the house. I feel today like I was hit my a Mac truck LOL
    Also the wife planted a Butterfly bush behind the house and the little things were all over it this weekend.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I know how you feel Dave. I helped my nephew paint his house the weekend before last. Had a hard time walking...stairs were out of the question for a few days.

    Looking good!

    Isn't it sad that we ain't what we used to be?
