Today's Yard Oct. 28

Working near a friend and fellow buckskinner means dinner around a campfire in her back yard. Puts the world back in proper order.

Today's Yard, October 28

While I was at Rendezvous, FALL came to Charlottesville VA. That's where I'm working this week. I especially like Charlottesville area assignments because my friend Sue lives near here so we get to visit.
I am parked only a few miles from Monticello. Thomas Jefferson's estate. If you're ever in this area, do visit it!

Rendezvous!

The weather was perfectly glorious for the Fall OVPR. Good to see everyone. The weekend went waaay too quickly. More later...

Bathroom = Bottomless To-Do List

I got the new faucet installed in the bathroom, fixed the light switch, replaced some cabinet hardware - then noticed the medicine cabinet was tilted: hanging by ONE screw. More chores.
I thought it might be an opportunity to get a nicer cabinet.
I went online - would you believe you can spend $784.99 on a medicine cabinet??? Not in MY lunch money!
Lowe's, on the other hand, is much more reasonable. I went there to look in person. The one I like is $50, a 3-door 24x24 oak-finished one - but it's a little bit heavier than the one I want to get rid of. I'm going to think about it some. And check the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. And the weekend's yard sales.
There's a really good chance I'll sand the rusty shelves in the old one, paint it, and put it up with wall anchors. Would you believe, it was NOT put up with wall anchors - just screws, right into the paneling - which has no studs behind it. I'm amazed it was still up there. It is a motor home, after all. Bouncing down the roads on a regular basis.
At least, everything ELSE in there is in working order now.

My new faucet!

I had an unexpectedly short day of work and found some Round Tuits. Two broken cabinet door latches are replaced, and my new faucet is installed. (Thanks, Danny!) The old one, a traditional lavatory faucet, sat at a bad angle. When anyone washed their hands, the counter got splashed. This faucet, you can wash hands under and the water goes in the sink where it belongs. A chronic minor irritant is GONE! Yay.

Rennaissance

The rendezvous is over and I'm back where my phone can post. My good camera died so I'm hoping friends will send me good pics from the 'vous. If so I'll post them. After the 'vous I stopped off in Maryland to visit Peter & Karen. Peter & I went to the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Both of us have worked at the fair in the past; it was interesting to go just as public.

Rendezvous

I'm getting a lesson in flint knapping here. While I may never become a proficient arrow head knapper, I can make some seriously sharp cutting tools for cutting leather. And it's fun.

Rendezvous


I was having supper with some friends when this pipe player stopped by to explain about the pipes to my friends' sons.
