I had this idea to commemorate my anniversary of working on King St. (on November 17)

Nursery shots: east wall

Here are a few progressing shots showing how the nursery came along - more shots to come, of course.

Step 1 - green paint first - we didn't bother clearing the room of furniture. Will it come back to bite us? Stay tuned and find out.

Step 2 - add blue paint to the walls. Nice - the colours look great! The mixer at Canadian Tire deserves credit fixing one of the Rona paints. They look great.

Step 3 - the closet was an unspeakable ordeal. But it looks good from this angle. Let's leave it at that.

Step 4 - furniture was phased out for the flooring to come in. That carpet's life is short-lived.

Step 5 - see! No carpet!

Step 6 - JC starting the laminate floor. How's the hockey pool going!

Step 7 - The twins do a great job, eh. Lookin' really good.

Step 8 - they set up shop in the nursery to finish the floors in two other bedrooms after they finished the baby's room (you'll like the name - but we're not saying anything until the birth). - - unless of course my wife already told a bunch of people.

More pics to come!

Tomb of the Undead update

This is really exciting because it's the beginning of the second half of Act ii, which is a bit of a milestone. It took a long time to get here, about a year to get to the halfway mark - perhaps by next year, this story will be told. Let's hope so.

There is some seriously awesome stuff coming up - I would imagine it's entirely unexpected, especially if you're having difficulty reading the pages or haven't read it yet.

PLUS - check out my Jesus. He's a handsome devil

LinkHere's a link to the latest scene for Tomb of the Undead, called Lazarus is Charged:
The mythology of this story is revealed a little more as Jesus visits Bethany days before he is betrayed by Judas in Lazarus is Charged.

Nursery shots: south wall

Here's the north wall of the nursery, step by step, as we worked along. There are a few updates to come, but here's the progress so far.

Step 1 - remove trim, test the colours, and detest the existing paint.

Step 2 - tape and paint the green walls. We're tearing the carpet out, so we didn't cover it while painting.

Step 3 - Get that blue paint up, too.

Step 4 - Move most the furniture out - I couldn't move the big stuff on my own. Had to wait for backup.

Step 5 - Here the flooring has already been laid, and it looks good.

King St. Capers - ep. 5

This really isn't an "episode." It's more of a motivational poster for teenagers to slap up on their bedroom walls - 'cause Mr. Minestrone has some serious angst and attitude that you can only hope to emulate.
