Have to say, I lucked out on painters. One of the guys worked through the weekend to paint the inside and nearly did the whole job in two days then brought in another guy for some touch ups. We did have a moment of adrenaline. One of the guys cut open his thumb just as I came home. We patched him up and he said he was set to get back to work. It was all finished up on Wednesday, and I have to say it’s a new house. It looks better than when I moved in.
On the sales front, the realtor wanted to take the outside shot for the ad but I told her I could shoot a few and email them and she could decide. So, it turns out that I did the photography for the ad and the real photographer can come out to take the pictures of the inside.
Then on the 11th, the Geordie dog hit his second birthday. All the painters have said he’s the friendliest dog they’ve ever met. I have to admit, Geordie likes every one that walks by. He made the rounds when we went to Home Depot and got a scratching by nearly every one. I took Geordie over to the lake and tossed the float out for him. He never has enough swimming.
With just a few odds and ends to clear up, I should be ready to hit the road, soon. I’m thinking late next week. Fingers crossed.
I was talking with my brother and he suggested going north while I’m able with the weather holding out. Then it would be a slow road south as the fall progresses. Where to go? I’ve never gone to North Park in Colorado. I’ve heard and read there is some great fishing up there. I’ve also been intrigued by the Medicine Bow Mountains in southern Wyoming. I think I read a flyfishing magazine about the streams up there. It’s not far from the Colorado border.
As I looked online at changing my auto insurance, it may be that I take the beginning of the trip up to South Dakota for the changing of the title, plates, and license. Then I can head south to the Medicine Bow area.
Once again we’ve had rain this week. It’s been great to have any rain but especially nice when it rains at night. Best sound to fall asleep too.
Truck went into the shop for some maintenance. So that shouldn’t have any issues for a time.
I had two more chiropractic adjustments and think I’m finally better. This is the worst it’s been in years.
And with my back in mind I went over to “Malwart” and picked up a new memory foam pad for the trailer. I want no repeats of the last two weeks on the road.
And last of all, I received a call from the realtor this morning that some one wants to see the house. The first showing!
