A funny ~ think you will get a chuckle [Happy New Year!]

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.

She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch,

Home ~ My Cathouse

My Cat[trike]house, or at least it was back in the day…

I’d bet this is not exactly what you are expecting. This little structure has had many functions over the years. My aunt used it as a greenhouse. I put in a concrete floor, added water and electricity. My recollection is that I did not use it as a greenhouse, but, rather a place to store business files, floor tiles, tools, and other sorted items. Now comes time for a different use—a cathouse—nothing illicit here.

I truly is a cathouse, as in Catrike. I’m placing 3 of my cycles here. Two are Catikes: Silk—my Catrike 700 and Fargo–my quadricycle [still undergoing mods at Utah Trikes]. My road bike—a Trek Project One shares the space the the cats. Faye—my RANS Citi Crank Forward still has space inside. Last you saw my bike room, it looked looked like this.

That was November 2008.

Since then, I have sold the RANS Stratus XP, The Velokraft VK2, the Trek 5200 and Trek Y22 MTB. I’ve gone from 7 cycles to three and then added the quad. I digress…


Home ~ My Kitchen [ready for painting]

721 Chadwick3Thanks to the expert carpentry work by Mr. Norbert Mason—I call him a master, the woodwork is complete for the kitchen and is now prepared for my brother-in-law painter—Tim Matthews, who begins his work Monday.

Left are a few snaps of the master’s work.

The last two days the crew is Norbert and Nathan. Sharry is in the office.

Tomorrow, they are back to refinish my hallway.

Thanks guys!

In case you missed it, here is my report on Mason Tile & Construction.

While the Mason crew is busy inside, I continued to work outdoors and put the final touches on the invitations for our Super Bowl XLV Party—”The Artis Party.”

I may have outdoor pics later this week and will mail the invitations January 1st.
