Right...I'll hardly know what to do with myself!

I can tell you I'm glad that's over with. Just a bit more finish to apply and fill in the holes where the scaffold rests...and that's it.
except for 7 or 8 coats of finish with a light sanding between each of them?

Probably not?

I've filed and painted my finger nails a few times. Does that qualify as job experience?

I think it would take me a long time to paint your stairwell with a nail polish brush though.

That's perfectly OK...I will provide two brushes...one for each hand!

Well, I'm on my way.

That's odd. Leaving the United States, the border guard was speaking Spanish and now I see a sign for Guadalajara.

Perhaps I should have made a right turn off of I-90 onto I-5?

Oh no...I think you made the right turn OK...you wouldn't be caring too much for the weather here this morning. Not to mention the snow we have forecast for the latter part of this week.

Snow, now you got me feeling like a little boy again, I looooove snow, for a couple of days, then it needs to go away.

The wife has the right idea about snow.

It can be here on Christmas morning, and promptly at noon it needs to disappear to be followed by warm sunshine.

Well, the best you can do is hope and pray that the weather man is wrong.

I agree with you Jim, two days of snow is enough. Our weather guys are forecasting 'wild and moody' winter weather. I guess we'll find out what that means soon enough. They're usually pretty accurate.

If she ever moves to the United States, I want her to be our president.

I think your presidents need to be born in the USA don't they? Luckily for her that means she's off the hook!

Up until recently. Now they don't have to show any proof. They just have to SAY they were born here. She's probably too honest for that job anyway.
