Okay, this is NOT how my house currently looks!!! This is the day or two after we moved in.As you "may" notice, there's a heck of a lot of paneling - and it's "pretend" paneling - not even real wood. I have no qualms about painting over it but at the rate I'm going, it'll be five years before I'm done!
I retired due to some health issues, my back being one of them. Painting is not the easiest task to perform but it's too expensive to hire someone to do it for us. So, I bought a gallon bucket of
"Kilz 2" (which is very low odor) and am trying to get the job done. I can't do much at a time and it's taking two coats to cover... I have painted less than one whole room and have used over one half a gallon!
I just know it'll be worth it when the ugly paneling is gone. Oh, by the way, can you see the "bar" - that cavernous area in the middle? Any suggestions as to how to fix the area that is shingled?
My son said just hang a bug zapper on it. Ha, ha.... I plan on taking the stupid shingles off and probably knocking out the bar and making it my office. But the shingled area has me baffled.
If I don't make rounds often, please forgive me. These is taking the ooomph (what little ooomph I have left) right outta me...

Two More For Good Measure!
14. If a person has an occupation that involves spending most of their working hours at weddings, their love life will be a disaster or non-existent.
15. Every city - despite of its size - has at least one old lady who drives her belongings in some old baby buggy or shopping cart around. If the lady is a guy he always uses a shopping cart and never a baby buggy.

CAMDEN (Feb 1): The Merriam Webster Dictionary definition for flatulence is brief: "flatus expelled through the anus." And while it's a natural bodily function, it seems some Camden-Rockport Middle School eighth-grade boys are taking it to new heights and making a game of seeing who can expel the loudest and grossest flatus.
According to this week's Fire Cracker school newsletter though, the joke's on the boys as the penalty for "intentional farting" is now a detention.

FEBRUARY 1--Mississippi legislators this week introduced a bill that would make it illegal for state-licensed restaurants to serve obese patrons. Bill No. 282, a copy of which you'll find below, is the brainchild of three members of the state's House of Representatives, Republicans W. T. Mayhall, Jr. and John Read, and Democrat Bobby Shows. The bill, which is likely dead on arrival, proposes that the state's Department of Health establish weight criteria after consultation with Mississippi's Council on Obesity. It does not detail what penalties an eatery would face if its grub was served to someone with an excessive body mass index.
This is proof that the Republicans are as stupid as the Democrats!!! Keep out of my life, out of my kitchen, out of my bedroom, and start working on something that benefits this country - like keeping our borders safe, maybe - for a start!!!
I'm beginning to believe that it's hopeless. I have NO faith in politicians whatsoever; we need a third party in this country!

Two weeks ago, we bought (read: charged!) a leather sofa and coffee table for our living room which has been bare since our move.
Geez, I just watched the "World's Funniest Commercials," laughing my head off, but do you

She wishes she could move home-to her real home-with her mother and sister in Connecticut. There she would be nurtured and cared for, and allowed to be a teenager…allowed to have opinions and ideas and to cut her hair the way she likes it.
But she knows she can’t. He’s making sure of that too…
