Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Time Marches On

We have a new Gator at Seasons In The Sun Campground. He or she, is about 6 feet long and I was able to get this close in the car to get the pic. Too friendly!!!
The floors are finished in the house and the interior doors are being hung. 
 They are finishing Joyce's little patio wall in the front of the house.
 I had Lintels added over all the windows and doors to give the effect of timbers.
 They are darker now because they were just done.
 The Lintels are done from stucco. Note the rough grain to give them the look of wood. We will have them painted a dark brown.
Tony the stucco guy had never done Lintels or Kivas before so he was proud of the way things came out. Joyce and I are really happy with the finish results. The Kiva has the color added to the concrete rather than painting later.
 Electrician is suppose to be coming any day and the kitchen cabinets will be delivered Monday.

Things Are Progessing Nicely

I have just finished attaching the two piece frame to the wall. Note the two Nichos (insert shelves). I had to install by cutting into the expanded metal, I looked like I had been in a knife fight by the time I was done. You just get near this stuff and it cuts you bad. This was two days of work and approx. 300 self tapping screws. This weekend I will install the hearth.
Over to the right is the kitchen area, and the floor tiles have just been done. Still have to grout. We have picked three colors for the interior walls. The color you see here is for the Kitchen / Dining / Living Room / Hallway areas.
Off of the kitchen, the remaining flooring except for the master bath, will be done in this porcelain wood planking.
 Dining area
 More to come
