More frick'n floor fix

I really didn't want to mention my brand spank'n new floor this morn'n, but.......I gonna anyhows.

Ya see, it's like this. When ya get in a hurry, ya gonna mess something up. On a little project, it don't make much matter when ya mess something up. Ya just go out and buy another one. But a floor? No, ya gotta fix it.

Send Tim off to Walmart to buy me up 4 pacs of "greenies". Setting my random orbital on top one these greenies hold it in place pretty dern good.....spin like a sum-a-gum. And away I goes sanding all them dog hairs, sand and dirt out of the finish coat of polyurethane on my floors. Work pretty dern good too. Slick like glass.

When I make my final floor recap post, I'm leave this process out. That ways everbody gonna think the old Billy Bob don't screw up (actually it weren't me, but I allowed it to happen). Remember that supervisors eye I was tell'n ya bout? Well, it was closed during the final coat.

Did I mention how much I like my new TV? That sucker do anything. Play movies off'n one them memory card thingys. Play music off'n the same thing. Hook my computer up to it. It do anything. If'n ya ain't never had one these new fangle HD TV's, ya need to run down to the TV sell'n place store an' buy ya up one. And then when I hooks it up to my big ol' surround sound system.....BOY HOWDY. Shake winders an' stuff.

Look like we gonna have a couple more days of this miserable hot weather from Texas. Yesterday I had'a shut the door it were so hot (106). But I ain't one to be complain'n ya know. It's been super nice (low to mid 90's) here in Georgia up to a couple days ago.

  3. I love my big old regular TV, especially the picture. The only reason I would even think about one of those outta whack TV's where they stretch the screen wider and squish it top to bottom, is because I would like to be able to record a program now and then. There is rarely anything on TV that I'm interested in, but when there is, there are usually two programs on different channels so I have to miss one.

    Other than shave Sadie Mae down to the skin, how ya gonna keep the dog hair off the floor before reapplying the polyurethane?

    1. Well Gypsy, I done thought that situation over. Sadie May is gonna go outside for one night until the poly dries enough.....right bout, for her, 10 hour or so. For me....4 or 5 hours.....barefooted. Biggest problem with Sadie is her damn fingernails. She wears them big ol' long ones....scratch the soft poly.

  5. I think we were in the high 80's today because of all the showers we had and it looks like a carbon copy for tomorrow.

    1. No showers here but also in the high 80s yesterday. Forecast today to be only high 70s with a 70% chance of rain.

      I feel sorry for those that are stuck in the 100+ temps.

  6. Hope your new coat of poly cures well and firm... (from an old hardware store girl: they sell poly specifically for floors, not just regular poly, and also a quick drying version) Just sayin....

  7. Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal daily.
    I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
