Progress in Cashmere

I made a trip to Cashmere to check on the boys progress on Jessie's house. Wow! It is really coming along nicely! The snow is melting and the mud isn't as bad as it was. After the sheet rock was hung, Jessie hired someone to tape and texture it for him. The guy stayed there and worked steady untill it was done(it was the same person that did Mom and Dad's house). He did a nice job. Then Jessie and Jimmy painted the whole inside. They did it all with the spray gun and it turned out great. Now they are installing the oak hardwood floors.

Mike was working on tiling the master bath shower while I was there, so I helped some with that. I think it turned out really nice...of course it will look even better when it is finished! Next he will install the 18x18 travertine tiles in the master bath
Jessie got started on his front porch too.

A Long..Long.. Long Winter...

I am really tired of winter..snow...cold ...and slush. The days are finally getting a bit longer and the sun gets us above freezing once in a while. The wiring and plumbing are done on our house..Mike and Jimmy will start insulating next Monday. Jessie has all of his sheetrock up and it is being taped and sanded this week. I don't have any pictures to post of his yet, but I will try to get some soon. Here is our house with doors and windows. The small round window is in our Master Bedroom in the vaulted ceiling. It is actually 24" in diameter. This is our livingroom while standing in the dining area.

The 1st picture is of the kitchen area, the next 2 are of the masterbath.

Here are few sweet pictures of Dixie & co. Dixie is the shaggiest little thing and her color is ....well... unusual.

Remembering Mandy

1982 - 02/01/2008

I am going to miss you...

I knew sooner or later this day would come...I just didn't want it to...but I am glad I had you with me as long as I did.
I'm also thankful for your daughter Rita and granddaughter Dixie (as well as your companion and friend... Rocket).
