I also wore my South Park socks. Shehab has as many dead computers as I do!

Special thanks to Greg for putting these up on photobucket several years ago. Now they will finally see the light of flickr!

Obviously one of my favorite pictures, being held in the arms of 2 beauties with matching pajamas. I uploaded this back in 2005.

In fact, I plan on breaking my own rules and having 2 copies of this in my photostream. The other one has all the views and comments, but this one will be in the correct place — next to other photos fromt the same set.

20000113 – flowers sent by Clint to Carolyn on Clint’s birthday

20000113 – flowers sent by Clint to Carolyn on Clint’s birthday

Yes, Clint sent Carolyn flowers on his birthday. Some background – On Christmas Eve, Carolyn had a whole elaborate plan that involved her getting up early and driving around so that she could see both families that day. However, her 1982 GMC Suburban decided not to start that morning, and all the plans went up in smoke. The next Tuesday, she bought a new (used) car.

On Monday, January 3rd, Carolyn was returning to work after her week off on vacation when she was suddenly rear-ended. That week, she borrowed her Dad’s white Suburban to use while the insurance got the rental car all straightened out. On Clint’s birthday, since Carolyn & Clint were going to Woodbridge for dinner that night, Carolyn was going to return the suburban to her father. That day, when Carolyn went out to lunch, it was really REALLY windy. She was getting into the suburban in a parking lot at a shopping center when suddenly the wind wrenched the door from her hand, and SLAMMED it into the car next to her!!! There was a huge 6" white scratch on the car next to her. To make matters worse, the owner of the car was right there, and gave Carolyn a hard-time about the scratch. Carolyn gave the lady her insurance information, and went back to work. And broke into tears because she was mortified that had happened. She called Clint to tell him the news, and while she was blubbering into the phone (she didn’t have a cell phone back there), her co-workers got all concerned about her. They tried to cheer her up. Eventually she calmed down and got back to work. A couple of hours later, the receptionist called and said there were flowers for Carolyn. Carolyn was confused because she had no idea who would send her flowers. She thought the receptionist had her mixed up with someone else. But, nope, they were flowers from Clint. Because he knew that Carolyn needed some extra cheering up after all that she had been through! How sweet!

Clint’s comment: I wish lady could have bothered with her two missing commas. Good grammar is sweeter 🙂

Carolyn, Clint.
card, flowers.

Way the hell up there! Note how the ladder is balanced by placing its feet inside of cinder blocks (with bricks in the holes to reduce wiggle). Typically the way I held on while painting was to hook a finger behind the trim around window sills or attic vents (or hold on to the edge of the roof), while painting with the other hand. When you’re up so high you can’t reach the ladder, you paint with no hands on ladder.

See the roof edge to my left? Painted. To my right? Still to paint.

The small ladder came from Matthew, and saved us a LOT LOT LOT of effort in this job. Compelled us to buy a comparable wooden ladder for at a yard sale later that summer.

Extra paint on the brushes at the end of the day went to fence post tops, then fence posts, then fence tops, then sides, then bottoms. We ended up doing the entire fence with "done for the day" brushes, even though we hadn’t intended to paint the fence.

Some irony on my t-shirt: It’s the company that paid my wages that paid for buying this house 🙂

Gutter on the bottom right? Later painted gray as well.

BACKSTORY: You people with modern houses don’t know how good you’ve got it. Did you ever stop to appreciate your plastic soffits? No, you probably don’t even know what a soffit is. I used to be in that blissful ignorance. But then Farmers (and, later, Progressive) dropped our homeowners insurance for having, among other things, peeling paint on our window sills. In 2005 or so, we installed siding on our house at a cost of ,000 to avoid having to spend ,000 on painting our house. But siding doesn’t include window sills! And now they’re peeling. Tasked with weeks of evening and weekend painting, it makes sense to also paint the soffits while painting the window sills. Pretty much the last vestiges of the green color our house used to be are gone — it’s now almost all gray.

You can also see how we are in the middle of painting the window sill (and it’s trim–partially painted in this pic) below, as well as where I used Elmer’s wood filler to build successive filling layers in the bottom right of the sill where it had almost completely rotted out.

808 helped us out with are cars, which was an amazing help to us! What would have been a several hundred dollar repair was reduced to the cost of a .29 part. It helped that he had a lot of tools and know-how. 808 is one of the handiest people I’ve ever met. We also split a pair of jack stands, as you don’t want to be under a car with only the tire-changing wuss-jack standing between you and getting crushed.

I even got to re-use the cardboard box from the quesadilla maker we got at a yard sale for recently — to lay on while under the car. Way more comfortable than rocks. And the boogeyboard was too thick for under the car.

At this point, I think we’d replaced the brake line, and were now getting ready to remove the tire in order to bleed the brake system.
