Our New Image Openers


My mother had no children that lived so I ain't so bright at times. Has anybody figured out the images chosen for this site?

What is the woman in the opening sequence staining or painting that is taking so long and so many coats? Another couple seems stuck wondering the same as they lean against wet whatever as you click through the series. Landscaping expertise offered here is demonstrated by a photo of a hand trowel and, and one supposes, triumphant planting of annuals into 4" pots.

My fave though is the guy with the shiny new crescent wrench staring at, one supposes, his new undersink plumbing job. I don't think plumbers I ever hired now how to work crescent wrenches. I could see channel locks in one hand and a basin wrench in the other. Or a pair of momma hunking pipe wrenches and words of the devil in a photo caption.

Thankfully, the slide series has left the sparkies alone.

First looks like a Milk wash on Barge board. Sixth looks like a different photo shoot of the first one, same Barge Board wall with the Milk Wash.

They are models......do you think they even know what paint is? The photographer hands her the brush...says "Stand like this, look pretty"...he smears some white makeup on her arm to look like paint....takes pictures.

I think I may get the humor intended. Look again at the slide series. I think the smiling crescent wrench laden plumber keyed me in. What do you really spot wrong with this pic? It is repeated in the series. I of course latched on to that she was overstretching and it was not covering even with a second coat. I thought a thicker nap roller cover could help too. Come on kids, tell me what else you see? This site was trying to toss a bone.

I think your wrong about the nap, looks like she tested it on her arms first, just to be sure.

She doesn't have any paint/stain on her cloths/hair?
Must be an expert painter!
That's why she has so much on her arms!

Maybe she's holding up the wall that she's painting - so,
it don't fall over!
(The paint will hold it up!)
Typical "DIYer"!

You notice in the pic where him and her is in it he painted his arms too. Must be a DIY thing.

The plumber with a crescent wrench has me cracking up to the point I will die laughing?

But again I find humor in the total series.

I would fall off a three story ladder before putting a hand print on my work just to hold balance.

Or put another way. I would never lean against a whitewashed wall I just painted even if the girl was half cute.

I'm sorry, but I find the slideshow clever and cute now that I hope I understand it.
