Good, it's about time she made an honest man out of you.
You know how lucky you are to have found her.

And we have no idea about what to do for a honeymoon.
There are plenty of instructional videos on the net, but where to do it is a huge problem.
Hey, that can wait if necessary, the getting hitched is the best part.
Well that and the happily ever after.

I want to come and wave from a distance like a street urchin peering in through the window of the Baker's shop.......

That's in the running....

Thanks y'all! Some day we'll have a regular party and get some locals to come....

Seems like everything you hear begins with, "in these unprecedented times... or uncertain times..... "

All times are unprecedented. All times are uncertain. Always have been. It's the only real constant.

Might could set up a Zoom on a tablet or my chrome book, and set it where those interested could observe the actual ceremony live....

Yeah... I think I may do that.


Also, back stairs are 95% done.



They had shitty carpet on them when we moved in. Carpet deleted, we had issues.



100 yr old heart pine:


10 year old home depot pine.


Big difference in color and grain.


Fixed that shit

nice, but you're only supposed to carry her over the threshold, not up the stairs!

I filled the gaps in the landing with wedges of 1 yr old home depot pine (at Amanda's suggestion{or so she claims, at least} ), and chiseled and sanded... Then I stained the new wood with dark Trans Tint dye and water, cured. Then I sanded that back. That left the hard grain dark and the soft grain light. Then, fire.

I torched the hard grain, and lightly sanded that back. A coat of old antique maple Trans Tint and some mixing of the amber to level the color... I gave the older wood 2 coats of the maple and a jot of amber..... Got them close enough to not be noticeably different.


Then 2 coats of triple thick poly, steel wool satin finish.
We're pleased with the result.

Oh yeah. And we painted. Amanda did the risers and side trim, and removed the railing. I sanded and painted them, and cut and sized and shaped and painted the 27 little side moldings... I just have to nail the trim down, and Amanda will clean up the little bleed throughs of paint on the steps.

That's the other 5%
