The Statler Brothers – “Flowers On The Wall” (1965)

The Statler Brothers are an American country music group founded in 1955 in Staunton, Virginia. Originally, performing gospel music at local churches, the group billed themselves as “The Four Stars” and later as “The Kingsmen”. In 1963, when the song “Louie, Louie” by the garage rock band also called The Kingsmen became famous, the group elected to bill themselves as The Statler Brothers. Despite the newest name, just two of its four members are brothers, and none of them are named “Statler”. The band, in fact, named themselves after a brand of facial tissue (they have joked that they could have turned out to be the Kleenex Brothers. Don Reid sings lead and is the younger brother of Harold Reid, who sings bass. The other members are baritone Phil Balsley and tenor Jimmy Fortune, who replaced original Statler Lew DeWitt in the early 1980s due to the latter’s ill health. DeWitt died on August 15, 1990 of heart and kidney disease, complications of Crohn’s disease. The band’s style is closely linked to its gospel roots. Harold Reid said of the group’s style “We took gospel harmonies and put them over in country music”. The group remained closely tied to their roots in gospel music, with a majority of their records containing at least one gospel song. They produced several albums containing only gospel music, and recorded a tribute song to the Blackwood Brothers, who influenced their music. The Statler Brothers started their career at a performance at Lynhurst Methodist Church

He thinks his listeners are such idiots that he doesn’t even have to act anymore. What a stupid schmuck. Keep falling for it idiots lemmings that follow everything this idiot says and he has the nerve to call people outside his influence sheep! Crazy. Rick Perry and Newt “the asshole” Gingrich fail to get on ballot in Virginia and cry like babies afterward. What a bunch of simpletons. Ha, ha assholes! Syria has Arab League observers in place to look at the situation and Iran is making noises along with counter noises by the US. I hold by my prediction of no new military action until after the election. Obama proves once again that he is Bush reincarnated only worse by appointing a Carlyle Group man, Jerome Powell, to the Federal Reserve Board. The Marxist trappings make him ideal to destroy anything left of this place and make it into the plantation colony it always was but more openly and clearly. The circus of the payroll tax cut and the assault on Social Security was in the news. Mind you they have achieved their goal

Well! Much better now! Still bad, but at least now it looks like a bad paint job instead of a door about to fall apart. And the DSL line is much better now too.

Our utility room door. Not opened since the 1990s — had to be pried back shut. Used to have a wooden storm door, until one year it just collapsed and disintegrated from the elements (which is why there is a piece of wood attached to hinges on the right). The cinder block wall to our patio (left) is in crap condition too — but maybe the paint will help keep out the moisture and make it last a bit longer.

You can see where the cats ripped open the blinds so they could look open the window. This is an orange cat thing; our other cats didn’t do this.

You can see our DSL line hanging down. Originally it was worse, with cracked/missing wire insulation exposing inside wires all over the place. Combination of what I can only assume was cheap wire, combined with snow, ice, rain, and kudzu twisting the wires taut all the time. I used many many feet of electrical tape to patch up the outside of the water, and to preemptively cover up cracks that were going to end up getting worse later ("a stitch in time saves nine"). I wedged it behind various trim pieces whenever possible, with the extra slack hanging around our electric meter. DSL saved! The internet and phone companies will NOT fix this line for less than 0 per visit if it breaks. Last time it took them two visits because I wasn’t there to point at where the wire was broken. COVAD are dicks. This shit is important. It shouldn’t be considered inside wiring, but it is. Once it’s past your junction box, it’s all "inside" wiring, even if it’s outside! Typical corporate doublespeak; outside becomes inside in the world of profiting off your consumers. I am the 99%, goddamnit.

Damn kudzu is already climbing up the door again, despite us weed-wacking the hell out of it just weeks before.

Home Depot’s color-matching skills with Behr paint-with-prime vs Behr paint-without-prime leaves a lot to be desired. A LOT. Our color mis-matching here is what you get when you take the same paint back and ask them to match the existing paint. They, er, uh… don’t. No refunds! a gallon paint-with-primer, a gallon paint-without-primer, tons of brushes, paint thinner, rags, elbow grease — And you get this! Mis-matched color!

BACKSTORY: While dealing with Farmers insurance & Progressive/Homesite insurance’s dropping our policy for us having peeling window sill paint (among other things), we had to do a bunch of house repairs. While painting our window sills, we also painted other surfaces that needed painting, such as doors, railings, soffits, stairs, gutters, pipes, and cinder block walls.

Very troublesome, though, is this hole in the concrete. This is where most of the water drains and does its wear-and-tear. How the hell do you patch something like this? You can stick your whole head in the hole!

One thing not mentioned by the insurance companies was these wobbly wooden steps. The concrete had eroded away around the nails that held these to the wall. One of the vertical support boards was rotting away. Things didn’t quite line up. They were getting downright dangerous, rocking with each step. I feared they would completely collapse! To me, this is the one valid thing that truly had to be fixed — and it wasn’t even on the insurance companies’ lists!

So I replaced the rotting board with another board from my attic, which I had found somewhere years ago. It was rotting, too, but I flipped it so the rotting side was on top. I left the extra part up there as sacrificial material and/or something to hang something on. For less than the cost of a singleboard, we used a TON of wood filler (which you can see–the yellow stuff on the unpainted brown wood) on all the rotting parts of the wood. Nailage was doubled on most of the boards. I bought concrete nails at Home Depot (THEY ARE AWESOME) and re-nailed the vertical support boards to the concrete well. I used a caulking gun full of Liquid Nails behind the vertical support boards, as an additional kludgey hold should the nails get loose later. Then we painted it all. The stairs have no wobble and are like new! Only one board doesn’t look so hot — the top-most board has split horizontally into 2 separate boards, as this is where the water trickles down during storms — probably due to me deliberately changing the water flow to go down these steps many years ago; see recent flooding video at www.flickr.com/photos/clintjcl/6166790798/ … But since each sub-board is properly nailed, it doesn’t matter that it split. It’s just like using 2 smaller pieces of wood. I was so positive we’d have to replace these stairs 5-10 years ago! Now I think they very well may last ’til 2020! We’ll see!

At the bottom of this board you can kind of see the Liquid Nails — it’s painted, and looks kind of like frosting. Some was needed down here. Wanted as much stickage as possible, nail or otherwise.

We dealt with these stairs while doing the other repairs. This is the part of the project where I hammered Carolyn’s fingernail, turning it black for about 4 months. BTW — kudzu can climb these stairs in less than a week.
