August 7 2006 Painting Newsletter


Hey, there, campers!
What a month! Sorry that I have not put up anything on the site for a while, for it has been rather screwy for some time.
First of all, I belong to a group in Tampa called the Rough Riders. We are a social/volunteer group that dresses up in 1898 cavalry uniforms and participate in numerous area parades. Mostly we get drunk and throw out beads, but we do some good, from time to time.
Back in May we heard of a grandmother who was trying to keep custody of her grandchildren, ages 6 and 7. But her house was in such bad shape that the county was going to take the kids away.
So the Rough Riders stepped in and, over the last two months, rebuilt the house for her.
Cool project, but a lot of work.
If you want to read the article on the project that was in the Tampa Tribune, you can go to http://www.tbo.com/life/MGBI18APFQE.html.

My wife Peggie (Breast Cancer Editor) recently wrote an article about surviving cancer, and buying a motorcycle, so we can ride together. Well, last week she crashed the bike, and shattered her left shoulder and elbow. She goes in for surgery on Tuesday, Aug. 8. And the first thing that she did after talking with the Ortho Dr last week? She went to see
her personal trainer (who spent a number of years working for the Yankees as a trainer) to find out how long it will take for her to get back on her bike!
Just goes to show that you can’t keep a good woman down!

Over the next few articles I will be talking about the Modern Masters Venetian Plaster product line.
For quite a few years I have resisted using “manufactured” product lines, since I was trained in the classic techniques of many of these finishes. But I have to admit that I am impressed by the ease of the application, and the appearance of the final product.
Shows that even an “old” dog, or even a not-so-old dog, can learn something new.

I will be answering some of your e-mails in future newsletters, so if you have a paint question that you need an answer to, just drop me a line.

And remember: Paint is cheap; paint is fun; and if you don’t like it you can always paint it over.
