Good Morning Friends! It’s Thursday and today my parents are taking on a big project which I’ll have lots of fun watching……well, assuming all goes well, it will be fun to watch. If my Dad gets upset and starts saying funny words that I don’t understand 😉 then it might not be QUITE as fun.
What’s going on? Well, Dad’s going to repaint our front door. Sounds simple huh? NOTHING is simple around here – trust me.
Dad will take all the brass stuff off (we’re getting all NEW brass stuff but not for a while so the OLD brass stuff will go back on after the paint is dry).
Then he’ll tape a big piece of plastic over the door opening – that’s the FUN part for me – I can see out onto the porch (where no doubt the neighborhood pest cat Stevie will be hanging out) but SHE can’t get to ME and I can’t get to HER. We’ll just make faces at each other while Dad’s working.
Then he’ll paint the whole door – same color but it will be nice and shiny and pretty after he’s done.
Then we have to WAIT FOR IT TO DRY – with some luck it will dry quickly – fortunately we should have a nice sunny day and not the humid, icky, WET-ish kind of day we had for the last several days so drying shouldn’t be a problem.
The plastic will come off – the old brass will go on – the door will close up and Stevie and I will go our separate ways! Voila! Finis!
Remember I said at the beginning “my parents” would be doing this project? I didn’t mention a thing about what Mom will be doing did I? Her job (and it’s a tough one) is to keep Dad calm. Encourage him at every brush stroke. Compliment him on his painting technique. Bring him ice tea when he’s thirsty and Advil when his headache starts. It’s a very important part of the project.
I’ll just sit there and try not to giggle.
I have a feeling this is going to be a VERY LONG DAY……
Happy Thursday to all my buddies all over the world!
