The photo-shoot subject for today, 05 February, 2013, is:
Things Around Here That Are Waiting To Get Done!
These are just a few of the items of work that need to get done around here. I limited myself to the first floor only today but there are many more upstairs not to mention the basement, oh my. We won’t go there. I figured that if I document some of these things here, and just get thoroughly embarrassed by putting these photos out there for all to see, maybe one or two of them will get fixed, repaired, put away, or just left…who knows?
(Note: Hovering your cursor over a photo will give you the description of it, and clicking on a photo will enlarge it.)

The photos below aren’t really things I need to do, but I’m putting them in for my friend, Bill D. in Yorkshire just because we were talking about them earlier:
So there you have it, cobwebs and all. I don’t mind my little house/cottage when it’s just been cleaned, but that little luxury doesn’t happen all that much around here. Mind you (and this is aimed at friend Mary…) we plan to do a bit of cleaning before you come over tomorrow, but we still can’t guarantee that if you wear black trousers, you won’t go home with dog furs all over them!
Let’s face it, we are country folk living in a city world! I’d feel more at home back in the day when they took their monthly bath on the first Saturday of every month and called themselves clean…

“The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog…
He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world…
When all other friends desert, he remains.”
