Holding Down The Fort

I was going to title this "Holding Down The Porch", but in the grand scheme of things, the only one around here actually helping out is Hank...who is, as always, even when things are chaotic, holding down the fort. Top billing.

We are in the middle of a massive (at least to us) porch remodel. The porch was actually in dire need of repainting at least three years ago, but I think we knew how awful it would be and kept letting it slide.

Iris, Comby and Weaslie were helpful as always.

Eli has two "offices". One on the porch roof and the other over the septic tank. Porch roof when intruders come around and the septic tank for when he wants to flaunt his leisurely lifestyle in the face of extremely hard work.

Let's zoom in a little shall we?

"Seems to me like you should go back to scraping old paint off my porch."

Don't let the sorrowful look fool you. Really.

And yet in the midst of all the torture (and trust me, this is not a job for the faint of heart...or me ever again), a little beauty.

Glad the paint was dry.

Whatta job!!! I had to grin at your taking pictures of the other things instead of working on the porch--That's what I did, and if you need another reason to not work, let me know, because I had a million of them! :-))

Couldn't help but notice the can of beer on your "tool bench" and wondering if it was 6AM or 6PM.
I also gathered that the white stripe on Weasley's back....( perhaps going for the skunk look) and the look in your eye was the reason for the remorseful expression.
Why Lila was not tap dancing on the porch?
Let's hope there's no paint on your camera!
