Hi everyone. Before we chat, there's always the formal howdy:
The Saturday Morning Home Repair Blog (SMHRB) is where we gather to discuss the many and varied aspects of home repair. Some here are trained professionals. Some, talented DIYers. Some, hopeless thumb-hammerers. All are welcome. Please feel encouraged to ask questions, share successes, lament sags, drips and cracks and, as always, share any advice that you have for the rest of us.
Just a stub for y'all this week. Not a lot going on in our little corner. We're still outside obsessing over trees. A few inside projects this weekend, but they're the "re-caulk the bathtub" and "paint some trim" variety. Nuthin' big.
I'll be in and out since we're readying to pick up both my mom and a good friend of the family, for their 89th and 88th birthdays, respectively. A trip up the Columbia Gorge for pie and to buy some salmon from the Native Americans who sell their fresh catch under the Bridge of the Gods at Cascade Locks. Back home for a salmon dinner. River to table in less than 12 hours. Life is good here.
Any questions from those who usually only read? We frequently laugh at old-timers, but we never laugh at new folks.* Everybody has to start somewhere.
Anyway, grab a cup of coffee and pull up a work bench. I hope that all of you have a great weekend and that, whatever you're up to, it's a success.
The shop is open...
*Actually, this may not be true, but if we laugh, it will only be because we recognize your pain. ;-)
