Do I need a dance card or scheduling program?

Company coming Friday p.m. and Saturday morning! Wife in JAX on business. Daughter in JAX area on vacation. Everybody - my two ladies in FL, wife's family from TX, VA, MA, etc.... all arriving Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

Plus I am driving Jim's 164L after repair mode I did this week to Marino's Italian Restaurant in Burkeville, VA to met him, his wife, Don and Ev for lunch on Friday.

Then riding back to VB with Don and Ev as they are also company this weekend.

Sara's boyfriend to pick her up from airport Friday morning and then take her by JJ's my painter buddy to pick up her 164B while I am in Burkeville having Italian lunch. We are having some rust repair/repaint around rear window from a previous owner having window replaced. Also redoing clearcoat on roof.

ML has given me lists to do before her family shows up for her father's 90th birthday bash. I hope I do not disappoint her.

OBTW we are taking him on Sunday afternoon the Aviation Museum at Pungo Airfield to see a B-25 like he trained in just before WW2 ended. He flew both the B-25 and B-24 but did not have to see combat as war ended just before he was to deploy overseas.

I did find time to mow the grass today and the stone paver guys are laying us a new stoop and patio just in time for the company to show up (or so they promised ML before she left for Florida).

Jenna dog sleeping away through all of this. As for me it is 5 o'clock somewhere.

I forgot to mention we have 10 people in our rental from Montreal this week and we have to clean after them for our family to stay in it starting Saturday at noon. I am sure glad I do not have a real day job anymore.

Wow, three years and restitution for key job. You're living right, Cheryl. I get bullet holes over a year ago and so far, NOTHING!

I didn't get this at first but then I thought, OK, you just put down the back seat and you can stick the 2 by 4's out of the trunk and just tie the trunk lid down with some cord to keep it from popping up on the way home...

Yes, it is a Bentley in the Home Depot parking lot in Bellmead, Texas.

Does the back seat fold down in a Bentley? If not then, man, that's going to totally mess him up getting home with his 2x4's. He can still strap a sheet of plywood on the top, though, that's easy.

He probably stopped in for some flat black paint; all the rage here. Bentleys (sadly) included.

He'll need something to cover up the scratches from the plywood on the roof. Might as well be flat black.

He would have less trouble with either the plywood or 2 x 4's with A VOLVO CONVERTIBLE!!

A Bentley in the Home Depot parking lot in Bellmead, Texas

The owner's probably just picking up some varnish to refinish the wood in the interior. A quart should do, if he only puts on one thin coat. And hey - at least he has the money to pay for it. Some people have to make their own wooden dashboards



But enough about that - Here's a True Sign Of The Apocalypse

AH! The "build a Jeep" kit! Good job! VERY fast too, considering how much was replaced. I guess the next question is "Does it drive the same?"
