Never again, again

Last time I did this I swore it would be the last time. Then I made a big mistake. I was removing some sap that got on the skin and made a clean spot. Then my wife walks out and says "oooh, that spot is really shiny". She smiled at me with that look... You know. So 3/4 of the way through it standing covered in a lovely shade of black goo I remembered how much I loathe polishing. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just remember sunblock on the face, that reflecting sun is unforgiving. And if you almost fall off the ladder after five hours straight, it's time for a break.

So here is a couple photos to keep us going, and I say never again, again.

Oh my!!! What a beautiful sight to behold. I hope I have my sunglasses with me if ever we are driving behind you. Well, probably won't be much of a problem given you are in California.

She looks great all right.

May I sugest next time you respond with a "Yeah, huh." and go do something else. Works for me anyway.

Thanks for the compliments. As far as hours go, I haven't really kept track. Ive spent a few weekend days and nights after work. I hate to admit it, but I would guess somewhere around 25 or so including tonight. I just put four more hours in and am rounding the back corner. Almost there! I swear I smell nuvite in my sleep.
