And once again I add to my remodeling column without talking about remodeling. I need to do some serious work on this column, don't I? The problem is, I'm having too much fun writing. My newest book, "The Gnome-inator," is about a 15-year old girl who disappears. She becomes a statue when she kisses a replica of Michelangelo's David, and is whisked into a parallel world of garden gnomes who are under the stern rule of a group of renegade Greek god statues. It's been a joy to write, and so far I've sent one chapter to "Asimov's SF Magazine," as a stand-alone short story, and entered another "Dear Agent" contest, where I try to get a literary agent to look at the first 10 pages of my book by submitting the first 200 words. The contest can be found at http://tinyurl.com/pcmopmq, if you're interested in it. I'll let y'all know how I do on both the short story and the agent contest. The good thing about both venues is that they make me hone my work. But enough about writing, let's move on to remodeling.
If any of y'all have small jobs you want done this spring, you need to let us know ASAP. We're getting about as filled up as I want to be with work--for several months, anyway.
One of our best customer couples, Jay Croft and Frances Ralston, are selling their house, and for several more weeks we'll be working mostly for them. If you want a house near Huntingdon College, in the historical section, you won't find a nicer one than theirs. We've rebuilt all three bathrooms, and are now installing hardwood throughout the house. A few years ago we remodeled their kitchen into one of the prettiest kitchens we've ever worked on. B.J. Teal helped, of course, and the job is a testament to B.J.'s skills. I don't have any photos of their kitchen on this computer, so I'll take some today and post them later. I need to get this blog outta here. have a great day. Earl.
