Still impressed he's managed to keep the white sweater stain-free! Though that mug is in a precarious position...

The lighting in this is terrific.

Love his jumper, and he looks so world-weary at the moment.

I like his disreputable old warrior look.

The mug is, sadly, empty at this point, but the sweater remains free of stains!

Thanks! It was one of those "Take 50 to Get 1" situations.

Yeah... the holidays aren't always the most cheerful of times for everyone.

Yes, this is turning out to be a fun figure to play... I mean work with.

Janie tackles a stopped-up shower head, starting with heavy tools

"Now it should come loose by hand. Well... it should!"

"Okay... I think I've got it loose!"

[Image: december26d.jpg]
"All clogged up with rust! No wonder it wasn't working very well!"

"New shower head - five bucks at Walmart!"

[Image: december26f.jpg]
"And there ya go!"

[Image: december26g.jpg]
"Five bucks, five minutes! Too bad all projects aren't this easy... or successful!"

After the second picture I was ex-pecting the next one to be all blur as the camera lens got blasted with water.... xp LOL
They've been awfully busy!
I hope you're getting some time to relax in between all these projects.

28 December - Nice Bass; or, Three Little Fishies

Taxidermy display of largemouth bass. What would you do if you found something like this hanging on the wall in a house you moved in to? Seems strange that the former owner's family didn't have any interest in dad's bass. Apparently the large fish weighed in at 7-1/4 pounds when it was caught back in 1988, according to the brass plaque mounted to the display.

Boom Boom Diddum Daddum Waddum Choo!

Wow. Fish would be borderline, but I would probably have to sell any taxidermy displays -- "heads" for sure.

My, how music has changed. This was a blast from the past... reminds me of my grandparents' records. They had some stuff like that although I never heard this one. What's that one about the rooster, out on the town...? I could find it if I looked. I always thought that was funny when I was little.
Anyway, this tour of your house by vignettes continues to be interesting!

It has to be the Andrews Sisters version. That’s the only proper one.

The girls are so industrious. Well done of replacing the shower head.

And hopefully the porch roof is an easy repair too.

I dont know how you do it. I get too lazy to even post to Instagram and that is pretty easy. I have new dolls and projects I have finished but I am just bleh...

Your outside shots are really nice. I cant beilve the roof one! The wigs look a little wind blown for the windy day! Cute!

Yes, this was my grandparents' style of music, too. I remember them talking about the "Three Little Fishies" song. I'm not familiar with the rooster song, I'll have to search for that, see if I can figure out what it is.

You are correct, of course, and that's what I should have posted. The Kay Kyser version is earlier, but the Andrews Sisters version is much better remembered today.
(I've been watching old movies on television starring the Kay Kyser Orchestra whenever I see one on. They featured in several films. They're a pretty funny group, actually.)

At first it looked like the porch roof would be a major challenge. Then, on closer inspection, it appeared that relatively easy patching would work. On closer inspection still... I dunno. I'm leaving it up to Janie. She's the pro.

LOL This made me laugh... a lot!

Yes, okay... we'll say it was the wind, rather than how rarely I brush their hair. I'm good with that.  LOL
