There is now a rod across the wall in the little enclosed back porch. My winter coats are now hanging on the rod. Have to find ways to use space wisely in a small place. This is the kind of thing I like to do.
My friend's husband brought over the large dowel, his saw and installed the rod. Took him about twenty minutes.
In another week, some of the work will begin here at the little white house. A crew will be here to remove the layers of sand and pebbles that have been filling the driveway for the past several years.
Then it will be a two day job to do the concrete driveway. This is what I wanted done when I lived here before. The concrete driveway will make it easier to get through the winter.
Then a crew will be here to install rain gutters on the house and the detached garage.
Then the work will begin on the inside of the house. New light fixture in the bathroom, some new electrical plugs, two new door frames and baseboards.
A man is walking home alone late one foggy night... When behind him he hears: BUMP... BUMP... BUMP... Walking faster, he looks back, and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the street toward him. BUMP... BUMP... BUMP... Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him. FASTER, FASTER, BUMP... BUMP... BUMP... He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him. However, the casket crashes through his door with the lid of the casket clapping CLAPPITY-BUMP... CLAPPITY-BUMP... CLAPPITY-BUMP... On his heels, the terrified man runs. Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; His breath is coming in sobbing gasps. With a loud CRASH, THE CASKET BREAKS DOWN THE DOOR. Bumping and clapping toward him. The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup. Desperate, he throws the bottle of cough syrup at the casket. And, the coffin stops. (Get it?) (Are you laughing yet?)
