A nice job of window re-caulking took about 2 hours including drying time after washing the general window area. By far the hardest part was keeping the OFM from wobbling off the ladder.



Any way the old caulk was cleaned out as much as possible and then the whole area was soap and water cleaned off. Drying did not take long to our surprise. But keeping old wobble body safe was a constant job.



He very carefully put the new caulk in the crack with just enough to give a smooth proper finish to the outer surface. We certainly hope this puts an end to the mystery leak.



Lunch was a big ole stuffed baked potato and sweet tea. Supper was the rest of the big ole stuffed baked potato. 

After the supper clean up, the OFM took the trash down to the dumpster about a quarter mile away. With that big meal in him, we do not know for sure if he was wobbling or staggering, but we do know he took up the whole one lane road to walk.



For fun the OFM took his golf clubs to the golf course driving range just across the entrance road to see how his shoulders could handle a longer practice session. He did just fine and even occasionally hit the golf ball before the big earth ball.



You can tell the weekend is here. The noise level is a lot higher. The traffic level is a lot thicker. The smoke from the freshly downed pine trees being a campfire is devastatingly affecting the breathing of the OFM, especially since the weekenders seem to only be able to keep the fires going by the addition of petroleum products frequently. We finally had to close the Castle's windows to help the OFM with his breathing.



With the window repair out of the way, we are hoping for tomorrow to be another great day of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. Congratulations on living over ladder work and the driving range. Two biggies. Also apparently you escaped the Alabama bad weather again. So three wins. One loss - decent air.

  2. Congrats on the Window Repair. Working on wobbly ladders is not always fun.
    Smoky Fires are from using nice looking logs that are not properly dried. Knowing the difference will improve the air quality for everyone around.
    Staying out of load noises is another way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Hi Rick. The ladder was not wobbly. I am what is wobbly.
