"I'll never paint again."

I've heard these words from my husband many times over, as he really has gotten to despise painting.

So much of his residential remodeling business used to be Painting Business, and I guess he just gets so sick of it sometimes. And there are long periods of time when he does exactly that - not paint.

But then, one fine morning, I'll have his morning coffee ready for him, and he will emerge from the bedroom with his white painter's clothes on. I try really hard not to say anything - like, say ...'I told you you'd paint again!' or something equally snarky!

HAHA! ...because I suppose I should just be glad he is going to work, and getting paid.

And you know, he does a damn fine job painting! I hear all about it from people - "Oh, Mark did such a good job on my house - my living room looks fabulous!" ....or - "Mark had the best idea for my bedroom walls - I never would have thought of it, and it looks so wonderful!" Ad infinitum.

I can say it has been, at this time, quite a while since I've seen the 'painter's white's' in the laundry, but, you can never tell....

Boy did you get lucky. One time, after moving here ( KS ), I forgot all about the bill. They just came and turned it off. No warning. No phone calls. No friendly reminders. They didn't even knock on the door.

It took six hours to get it turned back on.

Of course when there's only one choice for your power provider I suppose they can do that kind of stuff.

Nice site. I'll see you around.

That comment was supposed to be to your earlier post about the poser bill.

Don't know what happened? Must have been a mouse-click malfunction?

Well, thanks for the visit, anyway, Jim! :)

That must've really sucked losing your power like that! Ugh!
