Before and After

This is the Before shot, thankfully we don't have an After. We are on our way home from a long weekend in Napa, this is our gas stop in Medford, Oregon. The Million Air flight terminal where the courtesy car is a 535 BMW - quite the improvement from the Montana Buick. I just finished a sandwich and we're getting ready to get back in the air. The trip was fairly smooth from Davis to Medford - little did I know what I was in for...Jackie insisted on a sick sac which was purchased for $3 bucks. A little over 2.5 hours after this shot that sick sack had a very good Jamie said - "prego puked!". I guess that is not so bad, first time of the whole experience so far. Hmmm - I wonder if that means we don't have a future pilot on board....JR will be so disappointed.

This is at the top of Sterling Vinyards from their terrace, very nice. For $20 bucks you get a tram ride to the top and 5 tastings.

The Source of All Power

I'm home improvement sick. A small idea exploded into a full-on remodel of the garage? Will the kid live in the garage? No but I'll tell you if JR doesn't get his power washer, circular saw, mitre saw, tool box, etc out of the living room he will be.

We started this mess with the idea of a shiny floor which then expanded to painting then texurizing the walls. Now here we are over a month after the start with the mess continuing. We as usual started before learning how (my preference) and had some delays in materials. We ordered an extra tough Urethane product from New Jersey that should give us the airplane hanger look we're targeting. The first layer of color comes off when you pull off tape, so here's hoping this was a good idea.

Our neighbors are wondering when the shelving and junk will be off our front porch.

Na na Na na Na Na....Hey Hey Hey - Goodbye

The car....not the guy - but then again I'm looking for best I guess I'm open!

First words out of JR..."we're going to have to sell the car". Well, I guess that proves males are visual, this fact seemed very clear to me 3 months ago.
