I spent the last couple of days working in the office in the shop. I sanded the walls and ceiling and then applied a coat of primer to both. No big deal, except the walls are twelve feet tall, which means the ceiling is twelve feet above my head. Had to go get an extension pole for the sanding and priming. Now I know why painters get the big bucks...that job SUCKS! All the time I was out there rolling the primer on I kept thinking, "Where is a Wagner Power Painter when you really need one?" Obviously, the answer is: at the store. However, they aren't giving them away this week and I didn't want to fork out the money for one, so it was time to do the job by hand. I'm working the next two days, so I won't be able to actually start painting until Tuesday, when I'll attack the ceiling. Once I get a couple coats of paint on that I'll hit the walls. Then comes the crown moulding door and window trim and the chair rail. Then I'm going to tile the floor ( sure hope Home Depot has something good on clearance) and then it'll be time for the baseboard. After that I'll finish it off with some nice curtains and a curtain rod. Not gonna worry about blinds as of right now...that'll be down the road. It'll be nice when it's done!

Testing, testing...

Here's a three button music player...or, at least there SHOULD be one here. Can you see it? I got software to convert mp3's into swf files, and then get the html code to produce a player that I can put on my bluegrass website. It's working fine in Google Chrome and Firefox...but does not appear in Internet Explorer. Can you see it here? What browser are you using?

I hate computer problems!

The baby is here!

The wife (Grandma #1) and Grandma #2 (husband's mom) got to the hospital at 11:30 AM yesterday. The baby was born at 12:52. I guess it's a good thing they went screaming out of here at 0'Dark thirty heh? Baby's name is Bridger...6lb, 4 oz, 18". I told them that wasn't even the size of a nice bass and that I'd caught quite a few trout bigger than 18" last year. I'm sure I'll pay for that one later, but it just kind of slipped out. New mom and baby are doing fine...everything went smoothly. My wife is a Grandma now. I had no idea I had married such an old woman.
