Lonely At The Top

I'm almost there! I did get that piece of metal trim put up around the stove pipe where it passes through the eave and also got the painting done as far as I could reach. I hope to move the pick board up one more time and then I can paint the very top of the gable and be finished with this part!! I had a couple of spots to patch on the rafter tails and this and that, so I ended up working on this all day but looking back it doesn't seem like there was that much to do! Oh well.

Not much other news. Oh! some chance of snow for here tonight! Everybody is going nuts as usual. The state has screwed up my unemployment payments so looks like I might be doing a little yard work or something to get a little money. Maybe it won't take too much time from the house.
Well, maybe I'll have something a little more excited to post next time. Oh yeah, to those who subscribe to my blog: if i go back and edit any old posts, does your service send you a notification when I repost? I need to go back and label some old posts but don't want to drive everybody crazy with ya'll getting 50 posting notes in one day. I have no idea how those things work.

Dang, you are making some mighty fine progress on your house! I really hope nobody gets notified when existing posts are re-published, because I am a freak about editing posts right after I post them. Again and again. For some reason, I catch things I want to change only after I've posted, even though I've had a chance to preview.

Hey Jim! thanks a bunch! i think that trim color looks good too.

Hey Pea! i think Richard is correct about the posting, unless you change the date it doesn't show up again. which is good, cause I always forget something or think of something to change too!
