Farewell to Lakey




Oh, where to begin!? After three weeks, one poisonous bite and an almost full 30-yard dumpster, we bid adieu to Mary. Phew. Much plaster has been bludgeoned and hauled. The weight of 142 years of plaster has been lifted from our more-beautiful-by-the-day house. We have but two rooms left. Jordan should rightly be in this photo, as she helped to fill 2/3 of this dumpster. Sadly, we have not the time or energy to Photoshop her into this picture. Sorry, Jordan, and THANK-YOU!!!


Jodi got tired of blogging, so passed the laptop to me...

So, she got a little bug bite on the train ride home from NY. Just a little itchy. Then a little swollen. Then a little sore with a red line moving up her arm. By the morning, when it was painful up to her arm pit, I finally talked Jodi into visiting an emergency room. Well, I think the fact that she was in pain and felt weird might have had more sway than I did. We'll never know exactly what bit her, but she'll live to swat bugs from her arm another day. Sorry, no photos.

Due to popular demand, we will be adding before and after photos of the house.

    
Future master bath before.............

      
 
...and after!


Tonight's blog is sponsored by "Cirac" vodka from France. A grape vodka of excellent distinction. (Jodi's quote)

Also sponsored by hydrogen peroxide and bakers chocolate. A fine combination, if you are Digory, the suicidal Cardigan Corgi with discerning taste. Excellent bakers chocolate for breakfast. Peroxide chaser for brunch. FYI, a doggie's Ipecac. Digory will also live to eat more things he shouldn't.

Oh, Becky...I found a 1938 Liberty dime, in beautiful condition. Photo later...

Holy shit that bug bite sounded bad! You're a regular hillbilly like Lisa P when it comes to health care avoidance. No gall-darn doctorin' for me, no sir. They're just a bunch o' cheats. Glad that you have your arm and not a STUMP. Yes, THINGS GET AMPUTATED WHEN WE IGNORE OUR SYMPTOMS. 'Nuff said. Wish I could be there knocking through walls with y'all. Thanks for bloggin.

Quit biting her, Alicia. :)
