Well, Black Tuesday brought us a socialist as the President of the United States. I don’t think the next four years are going to be good ones. Oh well.
After a year or so, my Mom’s house no longer has major holes in the wall. It took us the better part of a day, but between us (Ana, Gloria, and me) we got it done. Oh, I hate old fashioned drywall, where there’s a base wall of drywall with holes that’s then covered with thin mortar then plaster. It’s hard to cut and to level out with standard drywall. Another thing that had been bothering us about my Mom’s house was the power coming in from the service in the alley – it was barely about seven feet from the ground. I thought it would take a while to get the power company out to fix it. Boy was I wrong. They came out and took care of it the same day. Very nice!.
We’re taking bids for the roof to get it taken care of before the Christmas holiday. With any luck, we’ll be able to get a small roof put on where the dryer is now so we can move the washer out there too. If we can do that then we can FINALLY put the dishwasher in the kitchen.
I ‘ve put Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Years on the calendar.
Lastly, I’ve been working really hard on my Volvo. I’m very close to getting it started. Soon. Maybe…
