This Has Absolutely Nothing To Do With Fishing

Off and on over the past weeks I've mentioned the remodel of my wife's sewing room. Last Saturday my son Ken and I installed the laminate floor. I would have done this post earlier, but I'm still recovering. Just kidding.

If you've never installed a laminate floor there are two things I suggest. One, don't try it alone and two, don't try to do it all in one day, unless you're feeling like Superman.

We started about 0900 and got most of it done by 2:00 pm and then I had to throw in the towel. The old body just won't take that kind of abuse any longer. I did manage to finish the last 6 or 7 rows Sunday morning, but that also took a toll on the body.

Late Saturday morning help did arrive, but it seemed to be help in a supervisory capacity. This little boy stood outside the window and watched supervised for a good 20 minutes.


Keep working
With the floor in and the wife off to IKEA tomorrow morning, I'll be putting in the base boards and the door casing. Once I get those two done, I'll do a short post with pictures. Once all the furniture is in I'll do another short post with the finished produce. Maybe one of these days I'll get to go fishing again.



  1. I give you a great deal of credit doing that remodel yourself....I'm all thumbs. Curious little spike.

  2. I'm surprised with those types of skills that you ever get to go fishing!

  3. With those eyes watching you I'm not surprised you got the job done.

  4. Thank God I have ZERO talent in the area of remodeling! And no plans to learn anytime soon.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving Mark!

  5. Hi Mark....Happy Thanksgiving.

    Those are pretty cool pictures of the deer.

  6. I’ve done the same install, not fun. Your friend looks like he’s ready to rumble? Hope he doesn’t do the rut on the window! Cool Photo. Happy Thanksgiving.
