Some Progress

Billings, MT  High 89  Low 52

The dry wall hanger came on Saturday and got his part of the repairs done. Today the finisher started doing his thing. However, his work won’t be finished until everything dries which probably won’t be until Friday. So very slowly things are getting done.

However, about 80% of the house is painted. Todd and Michaela are doing an excellent job and the walls look so clean and fresh.

Michaela getting into those hard to reach areas.


Jim rebuilt the floor and sides of our old trailer that we use to haul stuff. He’s already made one trip to the landfill and a trip to Goodwill. Currently the backseat of the truck is filled with stuff for another trip to Goodwill and the trailer is almost ready to go back to the landfill.

I’ve spent a lot of time shredding stuff that I had forgotten we left here. Lots more yet to go.

We also went to a potluck at Renee and Dick’s house. We spent some time planning our 50th Class Reunion which is scheduled for September 2017. I can’t believe it’s been almost 50 years. My classmates all look as good as they did in high school. I’m the only one that has gotten old.

Good food, good friends, good reminiscing.


  1. I'm sure you'll be happy when it is all done and you can finally walk away from it.

  2. Good to hear the house is coming along. I really hate dry wall!
    Looks like you had a wonderful time with friends.

  3. I bet every one of them is thinking "I'm the only one who has gotten old".

  4. I bet you're glad to see all that progress. :c)

  5. Will be nice to get the drywall and painting all done.
    Great spending time with friends too.

  6. Love that picture. A truly dedicated painter. What great help.

  7. all most there. I like your dil style for painting wish I would have thought of that when I painted my kitchen.
    speaking of kitchens your friend has a gorgeous one. Maybe in my next life I'll have one like that. Looks like you all had a great time

  8. It's nice to get together with the "old" friends regardless of how they've aged. However, I'm sure they look much older than you think if you believe they haven't aged since high school.

    I can hardly wait to hear you say, IT'S SOLD! Getting the work done and out of there will be such a relief !

  9. Good to see the progress being made on the house.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
