Remember the forecast for the beach last week? It said there would be wind gusts up to 90 mph on the northern Oregon and southern Washington coasts. And guess what? They were right and we can prove it. Just take a look at this photo of our “under construction” beach house.
Mopar Man and Lar Bear went down Friday and cut the trees up enough to unblock the driveway and get them away from the house.
The good news is that our faithful home builders braved the storm and didn’t let a few downed trees, high winds and pouring rain prevent them from continuing to work on the house. Wow, it seems that the old saying about “neither rain, nor snow, nor dark of night…etc. etc.” doesn’t just apply to the US Post Office.
Well, so goes the continuing saga of our beach building adventure. Next week “we” (meaning Mopar Man and Lar Bear) will start caulking the siding to get it ready for painting. They really, really love us at Home Depot these days.
HEY, HERE’S A GREAT CONSUMER ALERT!
Did you know that Home Depot gives veterans a 10% discount on everything you purchase? All you have to do is go to DMV, show them your discharge papers, birth certificate and pay $26 and they’ll make you up a new driver’s license with a “veteran” designation on it. Then, just show your license at Home Depot every time you buy something and they’ll give you a discount. When you’re buying refrigerators, chain saws, multiple gallons of paint and cases of caulking, ten percent really adds up fast.
