Me: Had an appallingly boring day with Volume 20. Out to dinner at San Diego’s one and only good Jewish deli. MMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good plus ten thousand calories per bite. I didn’t have to eat it all either. G did. Misery personified.
G: “I had a good day yesterday. It was Friday. Yee-ha!” A direct quote from himself.
Work: http://www.blogger.com/ 2008 Schedule.
I painted. I went to school. I documented. I helped G remodel the master bathroom in the rented Cable Street house, (a 2500 house on top of a business, downtown OB, with a 2 ½ car garage downstairs and the only driveway in the heart of downtown). G painted. G remodeled the master bath….which included major floor restoration from the floor below as the shower had been leaking for many, many years. We won BHG Honorable mention for remodel of the year for this one. G removed the boards at the bottom of the stairs. Lots of G family stuff. Some good parties especially Don’s post 88 opening party. And best of all, our first grandchild was born.
The before of a room that hadn’t been touched since 1956. Room size: 9x15 feet. After: Way too sterile but the landlady gave us the black glass from one of her storefronts, and by reusing the existing appliances we brought the remodel in for $750.00….including towels and rug.
Left: Marie with her first child, Aaron at two months. Right: G and his dad load the old van with goodies to sell at the swap meet. His dad did the swap meet twice a week. Bottom: Living room ready for the Christmas Party.
