Punch list still fat

Well shoot, here it is another day already. I don't even remember sleep'n last night. That's probably good news. Went to bed at bout 10:30 or so, tossed an' turned for a while try'n to find a comfortable position and that's the last thing I remember. Sadie Mae has no problem. And she snores like a hog eat'n slop.

Had a very rough time yesterday get'n round from "da house", to "da porch, to the workshop. Not much was done to "da house" yesterday. Two more items were scratched off'n the cut (punch) list while two more were added. Ain't never gonna get done like that.

Son Robert went off to the "get'n" place an' brung back some fiberglass conditioner. Broke out his little buffer thingy and start buff'n that stuff all over "da house". I had done told him it was a useless task, but he think he knows better than his experienced daddy. Now he has bout 4 full days of backbreak'n work ahead of him. An' it gonna costs me bout a hunnert dollar for that stuff he put'n on there. Sheesh.....I ain't no damn money tree.
You may notice a bit of a shine on the bottom half and the old dull finish on the upper. This is a job I would never tackle on my own. Damn.....that look like work.
If ya look very very close, you will see a bit of a shine. Not much, but just a tad. Gonna look like a brand spank'n new motorhome right off'n the showroom floor.....when he get all finish......next week.

    1. Hi ya Butterbean. I tend to agree with the increase in value....bout a dime fifteen cents. Robert been hav'n a dream come true for the last 2 days work'n his tail off try'n to make something what ain't supposed to shine....shine. LOL, I'm think'n Ronny ain't gonna show up at "da house" no more. Less'n I got some chicken on the grill.
