Opps, ain't finished yet

I rekon I should have make myself more clear when I says I'm finished, complete, job well done. What I probably oughter said is that there ain't no more stuff to be repaired or constructed inside "da house". Put'n stuff back in it's proper place ain't gonna be no easy job. Did I hear somebody say "dumpster"??? 

I started yesterday off with put'n stuff back on the walls, from the top down, and look'n for "those items" what seems to just disappear...."Robert....where the damn screws what hold this doomaflotchy to the wall"???

Up to this point, repairs, changes, modifications an' such to "Sally da house" has been a adventure I ain't gonna soon forget. There been a whole bunch of 'back pat'n', 'blue ribbons' an' 'cuss'n an yell'n'....."I ain't work'n for you no more daddy".....an' stuff like that. But then there's been a lot of sit'n down together, sip'n a cup and talk'n bout what ever daddy's, sons and grandsons talk bout. It's been an experience, but most importantly, an adventure.

Boy howdy, what the hell go'n on??? I didn't get out of bed till 10:15 this morn'n. Think'n back, this ain't happen in a hunnert years. Don't want to make a habit of sleep'n half the day and then complain'n the day was too short.

Ok, got things to do. Ain't gonna be much, but I gonna do something.....and hope it's right. 


  1. Sometimes the old body says "we are sleeping late today!" and so...we do!

    Guess we all have one of those days from time to time!

    1. I'm gonna rekon that I deserved a sleep-in after all the work what been done in the last 3 weeks or so.

    Howdy BB,
    Most days you take a nap in the afternoon to make up for the sleep you didn't get when you got up a 4am, so, this morning you TOOK YOUR NAP EARLY! hee hee
    That is some wall decoration above your head there; good-looking, too, also!
    Don't think it would work on a 'gator, tho, it might change a dope-head's mind!
    I thought Robert was going to take you fishing, while you was there!!! Hope the backs feeling better and you can sit outside and sip a cup n' think up sumpin' to get into!!! Maybe go see ol' Wayne and see ifn the fire's got up thata way yet!!! You could leave 'da house' at Robert's, go to Key west and get my nephew's sailboat outta hock, sail to Rockport, pickup Barney and go around the Gulf for a change!!! Thatz a thought!! Think on it!!

  3. Everything is looking great and sometimes we just need to sleep in. Have you decided which direction you going to head? Will it be Maine or Florida or Washington or California or some place in between?

  4. What???,,,Don't you know what day this is?,,Sons don't have plans for you? Musta had enough,,,lolololol.
