This is the latest thing… I’m SO chuffed to be working with my daughter on a long-overdue video project.

This. This is the kind of lifestyle I choose to be living in shortly. Freedom 55!

Reno - old kitchenette space

Mostly finished…

The “old” kitchenette space is mostly finished – I don’t know if they have yet figured out how to deal with the spot where the sink was. There will be no kitchen here, per se (more on kitchens where there are no kitchens in a later post).

So, This Happened…

Dog nudges owner under chin during selfie

This is how she apologizes.

So my asshole dog chased one of my reno guys into the bathroom today. I was in the bath at the time.

He knew I was in there too, but he was more afraid of the dog than he was of me, I guess because he just kept saying, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry!” while keeping his back to me and holding the door closed against the dog.

Thankfully, I found it funny from the get-go. Poor guy!

November 2019 Reno Update…

Posted by Les Becker on November 22, 2019 in The Reno from Hell |

There is visible progress finally, on this reno! I have hope that I will finally get to move back up to the space I didn’t even know I missed. 2019 will definitely end on a high note (har har), as I expect to be all moved up before Christmas when the reno is finally finished, or by New Year’s Eve at the latest.


I think they’ve got all the stuffing in now…

What is it about spiders that I find so intriguing? I think they are the most beautiful, elegant creatures.

Just in time for Hallowe’en, I noticed this house on my way over to Kyla’s place this morning.  Why have I never noticed this place before today?!

Creepy house on the corner

Do you see it?! Do you see my creepy house?

Creepy-looking house

Does it not make you sh-sh-shudder?

haunted-looking old house

…and I shall open a Bed & Breakfast, and I shall call it “Haunted.” For an extra fee, I will make it haunted.

Guess What We’re Up to?

We got into the finger paints today – I managed to convince Carson that this was not a good opportunity to attempt body painting (as the paper isn’t big enough), but I had to make a few small concessions.

He’s Still Cute, In Spite of the Disfigurement…

Toddler's skinned chin

Showing off his “road rash”!

Skidding face-first down a flight of carpeted stairs gives a toddler brag-worthy injuries!
