FIXING HOUSE

As I've already mentioned, G3 is back from the Pacific, where she was holidaying with her west-coast brother and sister-in-law. She got to see some Orcas, which was a thrill for her. Good time all round.

Now her brother and sister-in-law from the east coast want to come for a visit. Wonderful to have them come.

But fixing the shelves which went bump in the night, I'm afraid, was my undoing. G3 now thinks it is time to do some other repairs, particularly in the basement (which is finished and furnished, but needs some upgrading). So I've put up new blinds, I'll be installing new lights, cleaning out the spare bedroom, re-painting the bathroom, plastering and painting a wall. (Note carefully: the wall is getting plastered, not the Bear; at least that's the plan. And if you're thinking about the Bear and getting "plastered" -- don't go there! I'm not that kind of Bear! Da Blog Fodder knows me; he can attest to my "civility.")

So if you bear-ly see me or hear from me for the next little while, don't panic. G3 will have matters will in hand, so she doesn't have to spend a lot of time repairing the Bear after the jobs are done. I'm intending to sneak off and send a note whenever I can -- which could be daily, depending on how each day goes. And if I don't get to write, I'll be thinking kind thoughts of you.

Yeah, he is like me. We both drink only expensive Scotch. We are both too cheap to buy enough to inebriate us. But if you are buying...

WOW, G3, knows how to get the bear moving, doesn't she. It sounds like a whole remodel you're doing. I love the way wives need to invite guests over, to speed up the repairs. Clever, isn't it?
Good luck.
