Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

We had new windows installed upstairs and downstairs – the whole house – and with new windows come new wood trim around each window that needs painting. That’s what we’ve been doing and after four separate days of prepping and painting, we finally finished the downstairs this past weekend…in 89-degree weather and 75% humidity…and don’t even ask me how we’re gonna handle the 2nd-floor windows. Painting humor for you…but painting isn’t funny or fun.


Two painters go fishing and find a honey hole. They pull in huge keepers with every cast. They soon catch their limit and the first painter says to the other, “this lake is huge, too bad we won’t be able to find this spot again.”

With that, painter #2 jumps overboard and disappears below the water. A short time later he resurfaces and gets back in the boat.

Painter #1 – What the heck were you doing down there?
Painter #2 – I marked this spot by painting big red X on the bottom of the boat.
Painter #1 – You idiot! What if we don’t get the same boat?

    Good prof painters are worth their weight in gold…just had the >18 foot walls in my folks’ entryway, dining room and living room re-painted by a pro who did it in nothing flat and for a great hourly rate…this was a fix of my bro’s brother in law’s unfinished job 4 years ago (of course I can do it…)
    Hang in there…DIY is supposed to be fun! HA!
    And: stay cool.

      DIY has its good side, to be sure. Temps will cool off starting Thursday so sleeping in a cooler house will be a joy.
