How to Abuse Your Inlaws

You may have noticed that the work on the house slowed way down when it got to the part that I started working on. Well, I got some help from Penny's dad, Uncle Bob and brother Mike. They started laying the flooring in the great room yesterday and have laid about 800 square feet of flooring so far. It's hard work and 90 % of the time you are on your knees.

Merwyn and Bob hard at it.
Mike is on the other end getting measurements to go around the fireplace.
It's starting to look like a floor!
I was staying out of sight in the bathrom finishing the last of the tile Yay!

Celebrity Sighting

Penny, April and I walk every morning in our neighborhood. This morning we ran into none other than George Takei, "Mr. Sulu" from Star Trek! He has a cabin in our neighborhood and he and his "hsuband" were out for a walk. We each said good morning and walked by, I don't want to do the crazed fan thing even though I am a huge fan of the old Star Trek series. How cool is that! Maybe we could get William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy to come by for a bar b que!
