Tony is doing some work on his daughter's new house. Actually, it's a very (1800's) old house that they just bought and it needed a LOT of work before it was liveable. So he's spending a couple of months doing renovations to make it so.
I did go give a hand one other day, helping install drywall on the ceilings. Yesterday the job was plastering concrete on the inside of the 18" thick stone walls. I did really well for the first few hours, but by 2:00pm I was running out of steam! These are some pics that Kelly's boyfriend Paul took with his iPhone.

It's coming along.
Me, hard at work. Notice the sun shining outside?
So here I was hard at work, on probably what was the best day of weather we've had since we got here. Actually went back home at 5:30pm or so and there was blue sky all around us! This morning has been back to cloudy and we've already had a sprinkle of rain again, but now the sun is shining again. Weather forecast: variable. Temperature is about 20C (68F).
We did enjoy a cold drink or two when we got home.
Kevin, Ruth, Helen, and Tony. Oh, and Chester the dog!
Bought some nice steaks for dinner on the BBQ tonight. We normally would take Helen and Tony out for a meal towards the end of our stay with them, but this time we are making them a good home cooked meal in keeping with our philosophy about restaurants being too expensive for what you get. The steaks were £5.00 ($8.15) each, so they better be good. They sure look good! Will get some pictures of them cooking this evening. Mmmm. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Three more sleeps until Czech Republic!
