Thats more like it! Now if the grass would just green up! At this point my "panic" has started to wear off and Im easing into the feeling that is Casablanca. As I got the last lawn chair in place and the drive-in speakers hooked up the sun was setting. I must say the weather was intune with my feeling, when I got there the wind was blowing like hell every which way; then Magically as if nature itself said "Oh hey, Mick's here cool it" the wind died down and it was a very pleasant evening.
Now that all the chairs were in the Drive-In I finally have the Lounge back! Even though the sun was going down it was nowhere near quitting time. I grabbed the broom, a dust rag, and My trusty 1957 Kirby vacuum cleaner and attacked the Lounge at full force. While cleaning I couldn't help but laugh at out of all the rooms at the Casablanca its the one that is exposed to the elements that has CARPET for flooring. (As the kitchen and bedroom have linoleum)
In comes the furniture!
The Tv set used to go between these two chairs, but now having a permanent place in the Turquoise Room I think maybe we'll construct a vintage looking cocktail bar for entertaining! Couldn't daydream about a mixing drinks for long, I had a lot of stuff to clean and put back up in the lounge...
I just have an accumulation of crap! haha but everything has a story behind it, so we clean it up and put it back in its usual spot. My favorite thing on this table is that Star-burst multicolored wooden plate from Costa Rica, $0.99 at Value Village! Here are some close ups for all you 'planter lovers' out there!
This one I found in Kansas long before I had the house, I knew it was cool and provably 50's so it became mine.
This one was found in the trailer a few years ago, it needed a home and to the Casablanca it went!
We call this one "Rick" for some reason...
Just before going to bed I popped in an "I Love Lucy" dvd and cut the paper template for "George" out!
Went to bed slept like a rock! Woke up to a bright new day and got busy!
This was around 9:00 am, when I started using the skill saw I thought to myself "people are provably trying to sleep" followed by "Well more than likely they are hung over (I have some neighbors who are constant lushes), and besides they've had ALL winter to sleep!" so away I went.
There you have it! Our 8ft cowboy "George", he'll be painted next week during 'Break on the Lake' just like in the movie...
Other than that, I just sorted through and sent some honest to goodness junk to the trash... let the 2010 Social Season begin!
Oh! P.S. A new couple just moved in across the street form the C.H.&R. ... They have NO idea what they just moved next too : )
