No more rotten wood and ugliness there. Yeee haaaaa! So how have you been busy today? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Awesome! Looks very nice, at least from the outside! Give us a pic of the inside WITH the curtains and valance... I have been busy playing catch up. We had a snowstorm come through here and left us over a foot of heavy wet snow, so branches came down and electricity went off for two days. I got to play in the snow and didn't have to work, but now I have to get caught up. Don't ask why I'm on here, I should be working!

I can wait for the paint to dry! You'll get your snow, I'm sure. It's getting to be about that time for everyone who lives in snow country. Now I HAVE to get back and get some work done!

I forgot to cut up veggies for soup at my client's yesterday so I was cutting up the veggies, heating up water for coffee, making french fries (frozen kind), nuking corn, making toast, frying eggs, nuking more corn, and, in general stayed very busy for the first couple of hours at work!

Oh good, we get to see pictures. I have worked out today and I have grocery shopped. Done a few dishes. I am sure you are really enjoying this. I need to transplant a volunteer tree outside and some mums I bought at WalMart yesterday.

And a fine looking window it is. Did they replace the old trim or just clad it?

Some trim was so rotten they had to repalce it. But all was covered with vinyl trim even the new trim they added. Some small wood trim was placed around my front window as this one is a double slider and all one huge window whereas the old one was 3 windows. So in the process of cutting old window out the frame work was cut leaving 4 small gaps that needed trim etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Looks very nice! We need new windows here where I live, but since it's not our house, we won't be buying any. I can't even open my bedroom windows because they have been painted shut more than 60 years. They might even be nailed shut for all I know... it would break the windows to force them open. If we ever bought this house, I would want to change windows. I'm proud for you getting all new windows and window dressings.

I had a serious headache a couple days ago. Took some ibuprofin and that did nothing for it. I had tried not drinking coffee. So I decided to have 2 cups and viola! Headache was gone. Caffiene withdrawl symptoms evidently. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

We installed New windows in our house about 2 yrs. ago. We had them put in on December 24th. Not exactly the warmest day to have them done, but overall you cannot beat the price we paid. It does make a difference keeping the heat in, and they do look a lot nicer as well. Still have 2 left to do when we can afford them.

Hai webeishere, definitely i will say i am busy,if you ask a nursery student he will also say "i am busy". Don't get irritated it is the world of busy life. Due to different type of activities all are forced to become busy.In one way it is good when we are busy we won't care to see others fault. I think we are lucky to become in this generation.

Good day Webeishere, Busy, busy, busy - those words that I want to feel and to be. That, I really want to be busy with. As I want to feel so busy making more earnings. As I do want to earn a lot in the new field of business that I am taking into. That, I want to be known to this new path of business that I am walking into right now.
