Grandson Jake bought a house last year. An old remodeled house. Who ever did the porch post, made a mess. Jake said the big tiles feel off the bottoms in the heat of this summer. LOL
I know he had this house inspected before buying it. There are inspectors out there that haven't a clue. Sorry, it's true. The inside had the best materials and some fine work , but the outside seemed an after thought.
Ted and I went over on Friday . Tore the bottom surrounds off the posts.
We fashioned our own idea of how the bottom parts should look. Oh my gosh this was a major job for us oldsters. So much walking , standing, measuring, cutting. What ever happened to square and plumb ? We always use screws to put things together. They grab better, they can be backed out easily if need be. We were at Jake's at 9 , on Friday morning. Left for lunch at 11, and back again at 12. ...worked till 5. I forgot to get pictures once we were done. So we went back Saturday evening for this last picture. I see the fellows (Jake and his pals) have been sitting out on the porch having beers and not painted the posts. Hmm? Gonna have a talk with that boy.
Saturday my daughter Karen and granddaughter Savannah came to Tipton . They went to the library for a book signing. This book was written by a young lady that used to be my neighbor girl. The photo of the girl on the book was a girl from our town that was murdered in 1965. The murder was never solved.
The surprise, Karen bought a book for me too and had it signed by the author. When the book signing was over, Savannah and Karen came out for a very late lunch. We had a good visit. Then Savannah drives them home. That is why Savannah is with Karen so much, getting her hours in for her licenses. Gee, it's hard for me to believe my granddaughter is driving.
That was two days of our weekend. On Sunday, we just stayed in and relaxed.
Then came Monday morning. Ted and I went to Kohl's with our 30 % off coupon. That's the time to shop . I found these taupe colored shoes by Sketchers. You know they have that memory foam insole. So comfortable. They were 59.99 marked down to 54.99 and with 30 percent off well I gladly paid 38.48 for them. :):)
Then we used some of our gift cards from the children and had lunch at Steak and Shake. So it was a good start to the week. Ted got some golf in this Tuesday morning even though it rained last night and the ground is wet. LOL Shot an eighty -four. , not bad for wet ground .
Wishing all of you a good day today. XO
