BIG Day Here!

Got the new vinyl windows installed today!!  Woo Hoo!!  They are beauties!!  Double-paned and slightly tinted.  Tomorrow is the french door install.  I’ll have some painting to do, but I’m happy happy!!   Should save us some $$ on our energy bills….. gas and electric!
 
One problem….  we had our house ‘termited’ a year ago and our window guy found termites eating their way through away!  So we called our termite guys and they were here within the hour ( it helps to have have a warranty and a great company to call!!)  They immediately treated the window and then found a tree stump where the evil colony lived!!  so they treated that too!  And we found THIS!!!

OK!!  Kidding!!  But they DID find THIS!!

And tomorrow, our window guy (beleive it or not) is going to dig out that tree trunk with a chainsaw , an axe and a shovel!!  The cost???  $50!  Go for it dude!!  Hell!!  I wouldn’t do it for less than $250!!
 
Here is a pic of our window guy!!

He kinda looks like Randy Quaid!!  And I love the hat!!  LOL  But he’s a GREAT guy!!  He did our garage door and our back door!  Our neighbors want him!!  For his work, of course!!  I’ll get a better pic tomorrow!
 
We are going to have him do some work on our cabin too….  Doors, windows, etc!  He can pretty much do anything!  We had a long talk today and his hobbies are surfing and scuba diving!!  Back off ladies!!  He still has work to do here!!  LOL He also has 2 GREAT dogs that sit in his truck most of the day napping, but all of our dogs get along!
 
Mrs S took ‘before’ pics and I will take ‘after’ pics tomorrow!!  I’ll have better pics of ‘Randy’ , er, Larry, tomorrow!!  Ladies??  He’s a Superstar!! 
 
Well, enough about him…..  this space is all about ME!!  ummm…….. right???Embarrassed
 
OK, Ok….  I’ll get his email addy!!  Sheesh!
 
I have to go!!  I have peeps to comment to!!  I am WAY behind!!  But I DID work on those pesky unread emails today!! 
 
I will post again tomorrow and kick Mrs S’ butt for not posting something!
 
Changing songs!  I think you will like this one from 10 CC, even though I’ve played it before…

    You are really getting everything in shape.  Did you visit my main page and listen to my Willie song?

  6. Jaysey says:

    I am so jealous, considering I just lost the money in my window fund!!  Lucky you!

    Oops. Can’t see the pics. If they were of termites, maybe it was for the best. We need to do our front windows – water damage. What can you expect from a 100+ year old house?

    When I was in college one of the security guards on campus claimed to have been in 10cc.  Scary.

  10. Jade says:

    you actually had him pose holding that window huh!I wonder if he realizes how many ‘available’ women are gawking at his pic today-lol!

    I love getting things done on my house, but always have to balance it against the hope of ever retiring.  With luck I can die in a falling down hose while still working.  The one thing I am glad to be away from in CA is the termites (also the traffic, crowds, lines and a few other things).  They don’t seem that much of a problem here.

    Strike a pose… lol . Thats funny how you even got him to pose for the cam like that….Keep up the good work around the house..  It shows. 🙂
