My wife made a decision on what color she would like to paint the new room. Light yellow walls with a typical white ceiling. Sounds good to me, I’m just glad my part of this is about over. Just a little more drywall finishing, and the rest is up to her. 🙂
We were debating on what color the blinds should be, and we still haven’t really decided. Chances are, they will be white or an off white. One thing that I learned during our discussion was that she planned on buying new blinds for the entire house. That really doesn’t bother me though, we definitely need them.

It was about this time last year when someone ran over my mailbox. It wasn’t just my mailbox, but 2 of my neighbors as well. All three of us had our mailboxes on the same post.
The wife and I were sitting in the house, watching television when we heard what sounded like someone sliding in the gravels (we live on a one lane road). We both got up, and went out onto the deck to see a car that was stopped, suddenly speed off. It was dark outside, so we just assumed that the person in the car had swerved to miss our neighbors dog. It has happened several times before….nothing new. We went back inside to finish what we were doing. About 5 minutes later, the neighbors called and asked us if we saw who crashed into our mailboxes. We told her about the vehicle we saw, and then met back outside to assess the damage.
The post (which was concreted into the ground) had been ripped out of the ground with a 100lb chunk of concrete still attached to it. Since I am a carpenter, I was immediately given the responsibility of building us a bigger and better mailbox unit. My wife and the neighbors all got to go shopping for the new mailboxes the next day while I slaved away in the boiling hot sun. I got it done though, and if someone hits it now, it may very well split their car down the middle before it comes out of the ground.Â

Let me start off by saying that I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. I will tell you that mine was a bit rotten towards the end.
The day was moving along as planned. Some family came up from North Carolina and we had a cookout, got in the swimming pool, and got ready to go to a local fireworks celebration.
We get to the locations of the fireworks about 8:45, get our chairs set up, and joke around for about 45 minutes. They start the display around 9:30 or so, and what a display it is shaping up to be!
About 5 minutes into the fireworks, my cousin (who loves to fish) leans over to me and begins talking about beaufort nc real estate. I asked him if we could talk about this later, I was trying to enjoy the fireworks with my wife and daughter. He continued to pester me about the real estate, and again I said, “Hey, can’t we talk about this on one of our fishing trips or something?” He stopped for a minute, and then started back into it saying “You should really hear me out on this one. By the time we go on our next fishing trip, it may be too late.”Â It got to the point where I finally just told him (in a polite way) to shutup. I hate to do that to family, but some people just can’t take a hint!Â 😡
