He’s Back!!!!!

Larry ‘ The Hunk’ that is!  Our handyman.  It was crazy in my neighborhood today but unfortunately it was at my house!!

When we bought this house, 27 years ago, it came with a really cool kidney-shaped, ground level spa/hot tub.  But it was fiberglass and slowly deteriorated.  Here is what’s left

Yeah, we had it cemented in.  Filled it with dirt and old lawn furniture and let the concrete flow!  But the old heating and pump equipment was still there…. Until today!  That’s where Larry came in!

Larry 001

What a mess!!  Note the leaning walls!  But he worked hard.

Oh yeah!  The electrical was still on!!  This was the FIRST time he got shocked!! LOL!!

Larry 006

He started filling up his truck.  Nice truck too!!  Ford F350 V10!!

Larry 007

As usual he brought his two Australian Shepherds.  I call them ‘Itchy’ and ‘Scratchy’!  Nice dogs and my dogs love them.

More loading!!  I bought him lunch, gave him water and stayed the heck out of the way!!

Larry 013

This was the second time he got shocked!

Larry 014

Lots of ripping things out and hauling

Here are the final loads…

Larry 018

He only charged us $300 plus an $85 dump fee!!  Between Larry and my gardeners, WOW!!  The electrical is still live’ (just ask Larry!!), but our electrician will relocate power to our outdoor lights.  Also, we now have natural gas there so the plan is to have a concrete slab laid and place a new grill there running off that.  No more expensive propane!!

Here is what it looks like now, after the dogs stopped ‘marking it!!


He’s returning tomorrow to begin work on a new microwave enclosure.  Larry is a great guy!!  House on the beach, surfs, works out and eats healthy. 

One question… Does anyone else think he looks like Randy Quaid???

‘HUMP’ day!!  Hope it was a good one!!!  Same Trisha song tonight…

    Yeah he does, I was looking for the motor home and snot in the background. LOL My hubby’s cousin IS that guy straight from Lampoon’s Vacation. He’s AMAZINGLY similar in action to that character. Hubby has another friend that’s as dull as they come, so when they both are visiting I tease him that dumb and dumber is here. (Mean I know but if you spent 10 minutes, no 3 minutes with these guys you’d think so too!)
