Painter Jim Deacon and his son Adam are here this week to paint ceilings and clean the paneling on the main floor of our house. Jim has done a lot of work for us over the years and has come out of "retirement" to help us once again.
The furniture is moved to the center of the room and covered with drop cloths preparatory to treatment. Marcia washed the floor around the rugs, and we are much cleaner.
The house was built by Marcia's parents in 1969, and we purchased the property in 1979. To the best of our memory, the ceilings have not been painted previously. Probably once every 40 years is not over-doing it!!
We packed items from all the shelves and dressers in various boxes as we moved from room to room. Inspector Suki both enjoyed and suffered the event. She did not like her normal routine altered, but carefully checked out every box and change in placement of her usual objects. She will be pleased when life returns to normal.
