Turtelly Thursday

Quickie re-cap of today: Waffle house, the bugs are eating me, I am making progress on the paint scraping and getting B to the top of the burn pile, and my camera works again!!! (Cheers to Gary, buddy ol pal!)

Douglas fancies Waffle House so we went there this morning. Guess what I had...a WAFFLE! Think Denny's but not as clean, tons more grease, and a southern accent. I love the south. Have I mentioned that I LOVE the south. B was having a soda at 730 in the morning and the waitress asks her if she wants a refill...B's look was priceless almost a combination of Please give me my caffeine fix and Thanks be to God that you just read my mind. The waitress smiles and replies (to just the look mind you...those words never left B's mouth) and says "I hear you sister."

The no-see-ums continue to feast on me. Today I practiced using the putty knife to fillet those little suckers. My left hand which originally I left the dead bug on still is resisting all attempts at being eaten... the right hand has sooooo lost this battle.

The scraping of yellow paint continues (along with the many layers of blue, ugly yellow, some gray, and an occasional white coat depending on where I'm scraping.) I think tomorrow we'll get to the final side of the house, then we can do another power wash, then maybe scrape more, then it will be ready to be primed. Look here too: found a nifty way to hang my scraping tool at the end of the day. =)

Here are some pics from Captain John's house: Jonathan and Douglas. I would have gotten a picture of Debbie (because I am an equal opportunity blogger) but she fell through the sheet rock from the ceiling I refrained from taking a picture (of her with her scraped up nose, OR the hole in the ceiling.)

This is a REAL houseboat:
Can you see what I see?

I asked B today if we were going to climb to the top of the burn pile. She did not say NO! She also didn't say yes. But I think this is a move in the right direction in any case... so I just left it at that. Look at that bun pile! How can you not look at it and think... I need to to climb to that top of that!
In closing tonight I'd like to share this picture with you. This is the sign that goes with the restaurant we went to yesterday: Turtle Landing. Now read closely: it is TURTELLY COOL!

I'm not as nice. If you want to see a picture of Debbie's face after the aforementioned fall through the ceiling go to :)
