Aching feet and hands!

The renovation is in full swing now.  I spent two days at Daddy's packing up his living room and bedrooms, cough, cough, cough.  My poor hands and feet are paying the price I can tell you. I've lost nails and today they are covered in Kiltz paint. My feet are absolutely killing me from standing and up and down off of a step ladder.




Daddy's  (and Momma's) treasures...


Yes, Momma's treasures....

If you don't like to look at "bodies"...please
Please
Please
Please
Please
Close your eyes and scroll past the next picture.  In the wardrobe of Mother's (above) I found this...


It's a Burt Reynolds jigsaw puzzle that she had and we totally forgot about...I warned you to close your eyes.


Now it is all packed up and put in this...

Then we were left with this....



and this...

and this...

Now we do this...

WOW. Are you just painting the walls white? Or is that the primer?
I hope you are not getting rid of any of those pictures or paintings. If you are, I really want that India ink painting that used to hang by the front door...and the painting in Papa's bedroom....

That other one of the cousin or whoever...Granny told me that was a relative who had died of a ruptured appendix at 16. That story used to always freak me out....the painting still kind of does...but, I wouldn't want to see it go.

I would never have guessed the wood floor underneath would've looked so nice (I'm sure there are probably some pee stains though).

You can keep that Burt Reynolds puzzle....thank god we (the grandkids) never came across that one in the puzzle collection. I still don't think I'm mature enough for that...maybe just because it's gross....Burt Reynolds??? really? blech.

Wish I could be there to help. You've done a great job so far.

ok...i like men as much as any heterosexual woman but naked male butts do nothing for me....did you say this is a jigsaw puzzle? that would be a great gag gift.

The Burt Reynolds puzzle has left me speechless!

You will be busy for some time, I fear. It will be a wonderful accomplishment, however. Good luck.
