Side By Side ...

Whenever I start a blog post, there is so much I want to say (ok, there are days I wish I had a lot of exciting pictures, and I wouldn't have to write a single word), but then I don't know how to start, can't seem to get to the point, get lost in other thoughts, and at the end feel like I didn't write down what I wanted to say.

So here are a few things I want to say today: Thank you for you reading this blog, daily, weekly, monthly, doesn't matter. Thank you for leaving comments (I LOVE comments). Thank you for your encouragement.

I have been somewhat down lately, but quite frankly, after two years of working on Gunk Haus I am showing signs of deterioration, my batteries are shot, my nerves lie blank, and I am easily aggravated. But the stress will not diminish until we are open (granted, there will be new stress from running Gunk Haus, but that's another story).

Anyhow, it was a good day, it was a plastering day, and we got work done. The western half of the beer hall is almost entirely plastered (there's a small piece missing, because I was blocking it with the scaffold, being high up in the air, plastering a wall).

I am definitely getting better at it. While Jack was busy finishing up a wall, I already started slapping the mud up on a different wall. This is so different from when we plastered the Stube ceiling, Jack was pretty much doing the entire ceiling, and I tried to keep up.

Off to the picture section, which you all love. I apologize that they aren't the greatest, I am not a good photographer (a big thank you goes to Pat for giving us her old camera, without which this blog wouldn't be possible, at least the picture section).

I posted today too. I know what you mean, I lose my way in the words sometimes too and you know most just want the photos anyway.However I do get a great feeling of a accomplishment when I do get the post on the page with the content I intended. Happens about one out of every four times...lol. HHH

Awesome Job, I live in the neighborhood and drive by everyday. Can't wait to spend some money at your place.

Heidi, I read your blog post already (it sounds like you had fun at the show), and it seems you wrote just what you intended to, whereas I got lost from the first sentence on in this post (I was going to write about working together with Jack, and that I am usually a soloist and stuff; maybe next time).

Don't worry, Gia, we'll have just the right drink for you: A Black Forest Martini (OK, I still have to work out the exact composition, but it will be spectacular).

Thanks, Slam Goody, we LOVE money ... ;-)
