Our painting party is over and the results look great. I have a carpenter scheduled to come on Tuesday to put up the addition to the crown molding so I can finish that painting so the work will all be finished.

Terry and Sandra, Rebecca, Randy and I worked like Trojans to finish the painting of the family room, kitchen, living room, dining room, and master bedroom and bath all in one day. They all had smiles as you saw in the post from yesterday.

But Sandra was absent. 

I didn't have a picture of her painting. Actually, she didn't paint but she worked just as hard as the rest. I tease her unmercifully and am fighting to keep from writing a little poke at her. But, I will resist. I always respect my elders and wouldn't do anything to hurt one of the older ones. She wasn't pictured but I wanted you to know she worked hard too.

After all, when one works as hard as Sandra did at her age then they deserved lots of respect. 

Oops, I did it again. 

Devil, you get behind me and don't push. 


  1. Pastor Dykes,
    Hi! I have a quick question for you. Where did you have the BEAUTIFUL picture of Kristy done?
    I would like to have some made of my mother. Hope all is well. We are still praying for you and your family. Take care!

  2. Fantastic job by everyone. Love the colors.

  3. Hey Milton, the reason we don't see Sandra is that she works so fast that she is just a blur the cameras eye cannot pick up! Besides she is only 29, right? Wait that can't be right, cause Terry married my wife and I 27 years ago, and I am quite sure she was out of diapers> WE LOVE YOU QUEEN SANDRA!!!!!!

  4. Pastor Milton, the colors are great! The red; is it Tuscan Red by Benjamin Moore? If not, please post the colors.
