"This Old House"



"This ole house whats new is children
(college/ theater kids to be exact)
This ole house whats new his white
(because it will be re-painted next week)
This ole house was home and comfort
(clearly)
As they fought the storms of life
(its my safe place)
This old house once rang with laughter
(and still does on a weekend basis)
This old house heard many shouts
(don't get me started!)
Now it trembles in the darkness 
(mainly because its  sixty-seven years old)
As the lightning walks about"


I know those aren't the EXACT lyrics, but that's what they sound like, and I think its fitting for the Casablanca.  As I said, next week Thursday and Friday A friend and I will be re-painting (True Value 15 year warranty paint MY ASS) with trusty Valspar paint. I swear I only painted it 5 years ago...  and Its almost as if the house is saying "Oh he's going to host an event... lets see how many eye sores I can develop  in the next month"    But like it or not, the house will be Hallmark Card quality for the 19th! While I'm sprucing up and fixing last minuet things....




Who knows... maybe you'll get some red or turquoise shutters around the Kitchen window? 


The 'maintenance elves'  will also be removing that HORRID defunct Tv antenna from the grounds.

I'm debating on painting the kitchen ceiling a matched color green along with repainting the trim white.

(Insert list of A MILLION little projects here)

Oh, but its gonna be grand!

Painting! Ugh! lol... I'm STILL working on my freakin' living room lol...

(In my defense, it's big and has a lot of trim work lol).

Yours will look awesome when she's got a fresh coat!

lol - Mick, a house is a never ending project. Just when you manage to get everything finished, it's time to start over again!

Have you considered painting that cute little house a bright pink? Maybe a turquoise? Shutters will be oh, so cute!
