    WOW! Wonderful! Wow!

    Go Ross Go! Very cool to see your colour scheme coming together. Also I love the scaffold, not unlike what the original painters would have used!

    It looks so nice…I can’t wait to see the south face completed. What a wonderful difference!

    Wonderful! Whatever became of the ‘second click’ feature on the picture which allowed a super massive image for our viewing pleasure?

    • Mike on May 9, 2020 at 8:06 am

      I noticed that too, Anthony; I think it went away when the SEARCH feature was added. If you are on a desktop/laptop, right click on the picture and open in a new tab; then you can massively enlarge. Not sure about if you are on a mobile device 🙂

    Your progress is fantastic, Ross!

    Wow weeeeeeee!


    Yay Ross!

    I envy your persistence. I keep getting distracted by all of the different projects on my house. I keep making baby steps on too many projects and then get distracted and work on another one that comes up.

    • Mike on May 9, 2020 at 8:13 am

      Aside from the weather and grant deadlines, Ross also has the advantage of being (almost) totally in control of his time and projects; my wife is constantly insisting that I drop whatever I am doing, or change my plans for my day off, and do something else. Usually by midday, she will think of another job that absolutely MUST be done RIGHT now, and by the end of the day we have started four or five projects and none of them are more than 25% complete. Drives me mad…but after 32 years of wedded bliss, I have learned that “A happy wife equals a happy life”…and a million unfinished projects! LOL

      • Stewart McLean on May 9, 2020 at 8:17 am

        Glad to hear that you have a happy wife and life. Unfortunately, fulfilling as many of ones wife’s requests does not always make a happy wife. It also doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for one’s own interests. You are a lucky man.

        • Mike on May 9, 2020 at 8:41 am

          A sense of humor doesn’t hurt either, Stewart…LOL. Last summer my wife went to Chicago with her mother to visit her aunt for a week and I got more accomplished in that week than I had in the previous three months. And as for the 32 years of bliss, we have been married for 36 😉

          I’m a wife and I actually agree with you, Stewart, I hate that “happy wife, happy life” saying. It makes me cringe when I hear it. It makes the man look weak and the wife look mean.

          • Mike on May 11, 2020 at 5:02 pm

            Bethany, I am not weak and my lovely wife is not mean. We have been keeping each other happy now going on four decades, so we must be doing something right 🙂

    Now that is funny!!!
