Our hardwood floors are done!!

Finally! Got the hardwood floors in the living room and finished. There was a bit of a delay since they didn't get the final coat of varnish to match the bedrooms and hallway, but it was just a 2 day wait.

Nailed and putty!


Joining the existing floor in the hallway!

Rearranged the room and I'm not sure about the trunk in the middle. Paul seems to like it so we'll see.

Finished! Need another rug for this side of the living room.


 So, I'm really happy with the way the floors turned out. A couple of years ago we decided to pull up the old carpeting in the bedrooms and hallway and noticed they all had the original hardwood under the carpet. We hired "Premier Wood Flooring" company back then to come and sand and finish those rooms and it looked beautiful. Well, we decided it was time to do something with the old carpet in the living room but there wasn't hardwood under that so we had PWF come and install new wood. It blended really well with the old wood.

A day of fun..

A much needed day of fun after the week we had in MS. Before mom passed away, Wendy and I had planned on going to the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her birthday. We were talking about what time we were going to leave that day when she got the phone call from the nursing home.

So, I can't fully describe the fun we had! One of the highlights was a video of all the inductees starting about 1986 or so. We sang, wanted to dance and cracked up at some really funny parts. It was a great day!!

On our way to the Rock and Roll. Guitars are an awesome addition to Cleveland!

I will ALWAYS be a fan!!
