Joe, our security system meister, was back today finishing up the installation of the fire alarm system. We are now armed and dangerous. Actually the fire alarm is dangerous. I understand it is supposed to get your attention, but do you need to hear it five miles away as well? I apologize in advance to all our neighbors, if it ever goes off.
Speaking of neighbors. Some of you may have received a letter from the Lloyd Planning Board regarding our proposed signage (as our property is a non-conforming use, we need the approval of our neighbors for out of the ordinary signage). I assume you don't have any objections to a 15 foot tall neon sign with blinking lights and polka music playing during opening hours. Oh, you do? Well, lucky you that's not what we are going for ... ;-)
Workwise, it was painting for E!, and experimenting with different chocolates for chocolate stuffed pretzels, while I entertained myself with more flooring. As you can see, I am still using the *beep* *beep* *beep* manual floor nailer (I should actually demote it to a *beep* *beep* manual floor nailer, as I am starting to get a hang of it - which doesn't make it my new favorite toy).
Here an action shot, which illustrates why I am not fond of it: With my foot I have to hold the nailer in place, because I need both hands to create enough smack to drive the nail in all the way, all this barely a foot away from a nicely plastered wall.
But in the end it all turned out fine.
