I have a deal for ya.

If you win, I will come to your house and finish your project. But if I win, you have to come to Minneapolis and finish mine! Cost will not be a problem, I will pay $200/hr.

I get the same reaction from my Chairperson. I guess that's why they're in charge!

That's not far from reality! When I was working on Vintage Thunder 90 hours a week, I missed Valentine's Day and my wife's birthday. Good thing she's an understanding sort. She even came over to help clean rat droppings off the cabinetry one weekend.

There was a price to pay, of course, but dinner out, a pair of tickets to Cirque du Soleil, and a nice hotel resolved it ...

I guess we'd be classified as "Hooters". You know where you see the scantily clad waitress, but really you just went there for dinner or to watch the game, and there is no real floor show just buffalo wings.

We just have to update a few things, get rid of some beige. But the shell and floor are fine. Too tired to even think about polishing. Maiden voyage in 2 hours.

"almosty" is what we are doing. we have the sub-floor almost totally out except around the edges. Time to brace (and pray) and take out the rest of it. then fix the frame, de-rust it and rust proof. Then time to put new floor in and get going on the putting back together thing. We are really looking forward to that time. Ah.... 60traveler

I'm just finishing up with brackets for my holding tanks. That will be done on Sun. This will finish the frame remod. Then moving on to the plywood. The "clothing" is still on scaffolding. Any reason I shouldn't use 3/4 ply instead of the the original 5/8? I bought 5/8, but the quality was not good and returned it. Our wood products now days do not match the products of 50 years ago. I plan to lay lanoleum down before putting her cloths back on. Hopefully that will be with in the month. Inbetween projects finds me stripping the interior panals (all removed), redoing window frames, designing bathroom, plumbing, wiring, & interior, and general fantisying up coming trips. If someone can clue me into how to add photos to my profile I would share the adventure. There you have it, my roll-call-report.

Take care,

Done - and about $4,000 poorer.

Well - mostly done ....

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)
