  •  Good morning, gchaucer2 and (7+ / 0-)

    everyone. I have to leave for the shelter in a few minutes but I wanted to pop in for a bit to say hi since I wasn't able to yesterday.

    I went antiquing yesterday and found a great writing desk! I wanted a small desk for my spare bedroom and I still can't believe I managed to find the perfect one. Actually, it's not perfect yet - I'm thinking that whoever owned this thing before probably had it sitting in a dusty attic or garage for years. There are a few scratches and a water spot on the top that need to be sanded out. It also had some ugly replacement white porcelain knobs on the drawer that I had to remove. Fortunately, I had some wooden knobs that were the perfect size.

    It looks like we're going to have a nice sunny day with temps in the 60's. It rained so much here last week that I ended up with a couple of small pools of water in my basement. I am hoping we don't have rain for a while again so that the ground has some time to dry.

    I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

    Progress is made peace by peace.

      I just got back from a great lunch with Phil S 33.  Can't believe he'll be leaving in a week for warmer climes.  

      At least I got to give the old truck a good run -- still has rough engine issues but it didn't crap out and did an 80 mile round trip.  So, I think I can drive it the 5 miles to court tomorrow.

      The desk sounds wonderful.  Sounds like you have had a good weekend.
