Oh, our bodies are aching from the sudden exertion we started expending yesterday in the clean-up of the duplex. We finally worked out the details with the owner and are moving forward on the project so we jumped in with both feet. Marc did a marvelous job on the windows by literally removing them all from their frames and washing them out in the rain on the lawn, blasting away the mold and crud. I have started tackling the stove but after one entire can of commercial strength Easy Off am still not sure if I will win the battle to save it. This is the before picture; you don’t even want to see inside the oven!
On a personal note, earlier in the week we enjoyed a marvelous time with our daughter and son-in-law home on leave from Afghanistan. Daughter determined Marc should show Brandon how to do the barbecued beer can chicken so the guys had fun attending to that. He has to return to duty again on Thursday so their time is precious and short. We hope she was able to put some meat on his bones; in three months in Afghanistan he lost 20 lbs.
