It was still hot on Tuesday, but a lot less muggy, for a change. I took the trash out to the road and went to work.

I walked outside both times.

I went to Big Boy for lunch. I got the grilled chicken Caesar salad and it was excellent! Then I went to Ace Hardware (in the same strip mall) and got two plastic drywall taping tools (I forget what you call them), one four-inch and one six-inch.

Sidebar: I have good steel ones somewhere, but I'm not sure what box they are in...

So, I left the truck outside when I got home. After treating the cat and changing, I went out in the garage and got the two other pieces of drywall up.

Then I got the drywall mud and filled in the cracks. I put on the tape and covered it with the first coat of mud.

I'll let that dry for at least a day while I look for my sanding mesh thingie. I pulled the truck inside and closed up te front.

I got down the line trimmer and got the weeds wacked on both back patios.

That was enough for one night.

I warmed up two more ears of sweet corn and a brat and ate that for dinner. Then I cut off two slices of watermelon for dessert.

I watched an NCIS rerun and then went to bed.


  1. What was the hole from???

  2. I tapped the brooms that hang there with the front of the truck (it's a daily challenge to get the beast in far enough to close the garage door, but not too far). The broom handles spread the impact and cracked the plaster in that big hole.

  3. Strong broom handles!

  4. Hey, I don't buy cheap broom handles, okay?
