Porch Progress

This is what my dad put down on the porch floor. It is good for 50 years. I don't think any of us will be around when it needs to be replaced again. These are some of my dad's tools.(Not the broom though, that is Mom's.) He has LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of tools. I am not allowed to use ANY of them. That is pretty selfish of him. After all... I offer to let HIM play with MY TOYS. This is where he is finishing up. I have some picutes of when it was just a couple of LONG board thingys and lots and lots of scary open air under there.


This is a picture (through the screen) of my dad being a CRAZY REDNECK AGAIN. He drove the sucky trucky around the house.... where there is NO GRAVEL which means you are NOT supposed to drive jeeps or trucks there... just my 4-wheeler. Can you believe that??? The man is nutty sometimes. AND... did I tell you he did all of this going SDRAWKCAB ???? That word says backwards, in case you couldn't tell. Yep, he BACKED up the side drive, then went through the GARDEN... and down along the side of my SafetyFenced Area, and he ALMOST hitted my fence too, butt... lucky for him, he missed it by about 87 smidgeons. I don't know what gets into that man sometimes.

Butt, the very much GRRRRREAT news is that he got everything all put together, even my RAMP. Now, I just have to get them to the big city to buy the carpet. I think that may happen today!!!!
Soooooo now YOU have a job to do. In this folder I have some pictures of the RED sun and some more of my yard thingys to show you. Don't let me forget... hehehe




Tomorrow I will show you some more of my Yard thingys... If you're really good, I may even show you my flag that has something very special on it... or else one of my fountains. IF.. you're really good, that is.

Your porch is really looking nice so far, Frankie! Even if your dad's being a little, ahem, incautious with some of his methods. I hope you're out there watching the world go by soon!

P.S. Are you sure they eat dogs in China? Why would anyone want to do that?

A MilShelb Mom said...

Wow! Your Dad is doing a great job with the porch. Our Mom says our Dad is no handy man. We always have to get our Grumpa to come help with things.

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Frankie
When the porch is all finished, can we come over to sit with you on the swing?
Love Ruby & Penny

Frankie Furter said...

Yes Ruby and Penny... Of course I would LOVE to sit on the swing with you. It is big enough for all three of us to stretch out and relax after we have some zoomies.
I am all shivery just thinking about it.

Remington said...

Lookin' good! Do you have your tool belt on to help?

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Frankie
We thinks Old Spice is for shaving. You're not thinking of shaving your furs are you?
We'd prefer the strawberry creme rinse.
Love ya
Ruby & Penny

G'day Frankie,
my what a lucky little man you are, the photos brought back many happy memories for me, the first time I sat on your porch everything was green like it is now, the last time I was in your wonderful country it was all white.
I see that your mom still has the green table at the end of the porch, Your Mom, a friend of ours and myself, sat there for many hours, talking about all sorts of things, With your Mom drinking endless cups of coffee, Dad should put a power point there for her so she can make it fresh.
Thanks for the memories. will see you again in the fall, when everything will be a different colour again. Your aussie mate Barney is not happy about being left behind again, but it is just way to far for him travel, even if your country let him in, when I came home his own country would not let him in.
Look forward to our next meeting
Hugs from
Barb and Barney

I'll be good, Frankie. I'll be good not because you threatened me just now but because you bring the best out of me! I don't know why, but mommy laughed a lot with the 50 year comment, but I didn't get it. I'm sorry your dad is not sharing his syot!

Hi, Frankie!
Looks like your Dad has been having fun!
Hmmm.... and working too!
Glad your porch is almost finished!

The Thundering Herd said...

We find helping the dad on projects with tools is always appreciated. We usually even get to go outside and play while he finishes the project. Can you imagine?

Sandra said...

Well...I don't know about being good...what about just not being too bad? Teehee. Hope they are able to get everything all set up for you soon. Then you can take a picture on your new porch and add it to the picture collection. That would be fun.

Dory and the Mama said...

Wow, that porch s pretty awesome!! I can't wait to see the carpet!!

OH...and the yard thingies too!!

Smileys!
