It was a long, good day. It was funny to see how a project like this brought all the neighbours out of the woodwork. Everybody walked or drove by and said, “Looks great!” “Great job!” “Congratulations!” At one point, when the porch was about half taken off and there was lumber everywhere and windows hanging off the house, one of the neighbours drove by and said, “It looks better already!” The sad thing is that it did.

We were lamenting with our next-door neighbour about the painted green brick, and she replied, “Well, anything’s better than it looking like a tar-paper shack!” Yep.
