TOPIC : Painting…

Posted:  7/8/2017, 4:04 a.m. EDT


I go and get a new paint job every so often.  What color to use is always the big question.  I try to stay away from the girl colors (your basic pink comes to mind) and it usually turns out being some shade of blue or green.  From experience, it is best to use water-based paint if you're going to paint yourself.  Using petroleum-based products can be problematic, what with all the solvents involved.  Dad says that solvents create a fire hazard, and if you are a proper law-abiding citizen, you should first get a permit from the fire marshal.  So in summary, if you are planning to self-decorate and want to avoid permits, fees and fire hazards, use water-based paint.  Yet another helpful tip from your uncle Skippy.  Now, go take on the weekend.

Mister Fix-It...


Dad’s satellite dish died. When I walked into his living room, I found him talking on the phone with tech support, the TV set pulled away from the wall and a mass of tangled wires spilling out in front of him.  He looked completely overwhelmed.


“Tell you what I’m going to do,” Dad said to the technician, “I’m going to hang up now, go to college for a couple years, then call you back.”
