I have friends, two sisters, Daisy and Ann. Both in their 80’s. When in Anderson, SC, Steve said Daisy needed a fire place cover. With my hearing I had no idea what he was referring to. So we finally got around to going by Ann’s house on the way to Daisy’s.
Some background. Our home church here in Belmont had a cake auction. Ann always bakes delicious cakes and gives them up for auction. Sherry has bid $200 for one of her cakes. (she does this as a donation). Anyway this week she came home from the auction with a back seat covered with cakes. Two of them were Ann’s cakes, they had cake covers, so we needed to return the cake services (is that a good term, I am meaning the covers for the cakes). Anyway that is why we stopped by Ann’s first, to return the STUFF. Ann rode with us to Daisy’s house.
They insist on paying, Seniors are a lot like that, we want to pay our way, don’t we?
Anyway what Daisy needed was something to cover her fireplace opening since she never had a fire, the house heat goes up the ‘damper less’ chimney.
(I took Daisy D. and Minnie M over to see Daisy)
Sherry and I checked at Lowes and they wanted between $300-$400 for a professional cover I knew Daisy would not go for that. So after a little-bit I told her I could make her a cover.
She was very proud of the results. Daisy told me Ann needed some work on her deck but would not ask because I would not accept payment. I took care of the rotted board this morning..
It is a pleasure to work for someone who appreciates it.
Here is the finished product of the Driveway fix at Shirls. Shirl arranged the work, I just got the material ready. That is Shirl’s house at the end of the drive. The house is actually at the end of another street and the long drive connects both streets.
To be honest, I like showing off.
Does every one have a little show off in them?
Dance floor, trivia questions, crocheting, sewing, painting, carving or cooking?
Louis can show off all he wants to on autos. he is brilliant on auto info…
