Not finished yet....

Don't be think'n the old Billy Bob is gonna give up and call it a finished job. I get'n all kinds of new ideas float'n round in my head while I sit'n here on "da porch sip'n a cup an' think'n.

Yesterday was another stressful day mak'n changes to what was already changed from the day before. Mainly the new tv. You seen yesterdays photo before any changes and here is todays. See if you can find the difference....what took a bunch of hours to complete.

Ok, that was a hard question. If you notice, there ain't no old lumber hang'n down from the bottom of the tv.

 The original tv cabinet....or hole it fit in, was decreased in height by bout 4 inches. Then a piano hinge, Roberts idea, was installed for access the the back of the tv where all the wiring connections are located. Window locks were installed on each side to hold the tv and the homemade Billy Bob tv mount from fall'n down when I floor board "Sally da house". Another job well done by the renowned construction family of Billy Bob & Company. Kind of make ya think of Sanford & Son don't it?

Today starts out with pick'n up an' sort'n of tools. My God, there's tools everywheres. No wonder we couldn't find them.

Right now today, we sit'n on bout $1600 parts and materials and $500 in labor....not count'n mine. Dollar two give or take. This pretty much what I was expect'n. Next is the tires, brake pads and front wheel maintenance....GRRRRRRR.....damn, high dollar.

Weather has been beautiful here in Georgia. Day time temps in the mid to upper 80's. Ya cain't beat that wit a stik. Ain't rained in a few days and when it did, it poured, an' there weren't no leaks.....fingers crossed, knock'n on wood. Musta did something right.
