The $1000 Truck

Consider this the Beeb's car.

Sent on the go from my Sprint Q

It's not you, it's me.

It's not that I've lost interest in posting to the blog, but I've been at the house every night after work until about 10. After I get home, blogging is the last thing on my mind. As I'm pretty busy at work, I can't even abuse the internets like I want. This sucks! I'll try to post some pictures from the worksite soon.

Also, there'll be an article in the T-P this Saturday.

The Beeb's cousin?

Sent on the go from my Sprint Q


The foiling of the house is almost done, and wiring will soon commence. The foil is to serve as a radiant barrier that is supposed to cut down on cooling costs. This is good because we also now have our AC units installed. All they need now is power and we'll be living in climate controlled splendour again. Hooray!

Check out this interesting article.

Quotable Quotes

Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been working on the house and have no energy left by the time I get back to the apartment. Anywho, here's something I saw that is helping me keep going...

I’ll sleep next to my hammer drill if I have to. There’s a story in this house, and whether it happened over a hundred years ago, or it’s happening now, it has to keep being told. It’s New Orleans culture and I’m just a page in the book.

They must be stupid.

Why would you place one of the world's largest and most important financial centers in a flood zone? That's just dumb. I just hope they don't expect a handout from the government, oh wait, they've already gotten one already.

The deck and Charlie's dog

The construction continues. Our deck is probably going to be finished shortly, and I will post pictures of it pretty soon. It ended up bigger in reality than we had envisioned it. It doesn't really dominate the yard, however, so I think it will work well. The electrical is up next, and we should be laying out the plan this week.

Also, here's some reading for you if you'd like to see Dollar Bill squirm. Again, I thank you JP west bank.

Most is well.

Turns out it actually *was* an Entergy problem. I guess I'll send them the bill. We were able to spend last night in the apartment with AC and hot water. Hooray! The Beeb was a little more rambunctious that usual, but settled down and napped on the floor. I think she's starting to really get into a routine now, which is great because she was really starting to tax our patience. Well, as much as a dog that cute can.
