Funny Trim

We have slowly, but surely, been working on the trim work around the house. We have also been building shelves for the pantry. Last night we put the finishing touches on the pantry, but today I will need to do some sanding and painting. When it is done, I will post pictures.
In the meantime, here is a photo of the trim over the front door. Notice that the door is in the corner. Toby could not do the cute little overhang that he had done on all the other doors and windows. Instead, he only did one side of the overhang thang - making it look a bit like a pointing finger. When Jesse came in and saw Toby's work, she went in to her Inspector Kemp from "Young Frankenstein" impersonation with his stiff arm. We all got a good laugh, but really what else was Toby to do with the trim? Then last night after working all evening, we finally sat down in the living room to relax a bit before bed. I looked over at the trim on the door and in a streak of meanness told Toby that I was going to paint,"Mexico - 500 miles" over the door. We both laughed and laughed. Maybe we were just tired.

Maybe I could come up with something more unique - like Kalamazoo - any ideas?

Andy said...

Heh! I love the idea, Lou.

It put me in mind of the old MASH episodes where they had the signpost with mileages back home from Ko-rear.

You weren't just tired...that's worth laughing about.

I was thinking that Pam would probably paint (and, she's artistic, too), "KITCHEN 40 FEET." Or, maybe "LAUNDRY ROOM, 60 FEET."

I think you two would really like each other. Gots lots in common...

Heh! Word verification: exturado

...why don't you come to your senses?...

Maybe we need to have a blog-meet.

Exturado - Ha!

In re: ideers. Mebbe later. I just woke up.

Andy said...

Lou, I will start posting links to your posts on my Facebook deal.

Pam is a Facebooker, and I know she'd enjoy reading about what's going on with you.

Don't know why I didn't think about that before.
