Yesterday I helped Vince get the tarps down under the deck and today he’s going to start staining.
In the spring Vince got one coat of stain on the deck boards but he wanted to get another coat on them, and stain the spindles and hand rails so .. the plan is that he will start working on that today.
He had someone that was going to stain the deck and the fence but then Vince decided “we” could do it ourselves. Not so sure how much I can do but I’ll try.
Oscar was not happy about walking through the door and having to step on the blue tarp that hasn’t been there before but he knows he gets a treat for going out so I pulled a treat out of my pocket, said “Go pee!” and like a brave dog, he walked across the tarp! For the next few days, we’ll have to make sure Vince isn’t working right above the door when we go out.
Many, many years ago a friend was painting some part of the outside of her house. She was up on a ladder with a bucket of paint and her dachshund was running around. I’m not sure how it happened but the paint fell and the dachshund ended up covered in paint. Let’s hope nothing like that happens with Oscar.
