OK, let’s look at this photo again—no, it has nothing to do with the cowboy’s ugly hat—it’s still ugly. Sharon from the Odd Essay got it on the first try—Emmi is sitting in Michael’s lap—in a restaurant!! When the gang headed out for an ATV ride, this crew didn’t get the message we would be dining in Yarnell—we packed a lunch as usual and took Emmi as usual—when we realized dining in a restaurant was on the agenda, we had a dilemma. We were afraid to leave Emmi leashed to the rig (something we’ve never done)—the street running through Yarnell is way too busy for that. So—I thought, what the heck, I will just ask if Emmi can come in with us—they said yes—you gotta love small town USA! They tucked us away in a back room and we were good to go.
The kitchen is taking shape and I’ve started painting—I just may have a working kitchen by Thanksgiving??? Help arrived today in the form of Barry and Geri—Barry came to help Michael with cabinets and Geri came to help me paint—now those are good friends!!! I painted the kitchen/sunroom ceilings yesterday and today Geri and I quickly had all the kitchen/sunroom walls painted with the exception of the accent wall—need to buy paint for that one. I used an off white on the ceilings and a mushroom risotto (who comes up with these names??)—a light taupe color on the walls—it looks great.
Tonight all the lower cabinets are installed with the exception of the one which goes to the left of the range—tomorrow. The dishwasher is washing away as I type—we are making sure it works before we attempt to sell the old one at the North Ranch garage sale on Saturday.
Our friend John posted this on Facebook: “I think I found the guy who originally owned that Stetson you got Mike” Yep, John, I think you are correct!
