So much paint. So little time.

Well, I decided it’s finally time to get to all the hail dents on the Toronado.  Except for the fact that nobody around here sells the right color of paint.  If I were smart I would have stocked up.  But no.  I’m not smart.  Luckily Biebs was able to score some for me from Home Depot in Hays.  Saweet!  So I was looking at maybe starting the sand and fill the MANY MANY hail dents this weekend.

And then I’m heading over to drop of my rent check and the landlord is there.  She says, “Hey, here’s that paint you asked for to paint the house!”  Hooray!  Which I am also excited about.  Finally get some paint on the gawd awful trim on this house.  So that’s gonna take priority.  Except that I don’t have a ladder.  Gotta get a ladder.  Only its hard to haul a ladder home in either a Toronado, or a Mustang.  If only I had…oh…an El Camino!

But they’ll both get done.  Hopefully before the snow falls.  I hope.

  1. Well when i was checking out at Home Depot i asked if there was a number or somthing i can call to complain i had called before hand and asked if they had it. the guy on the other end didnt sound much like a winner and told me no they didnt have … but as you can see i found it right where it was suppose to be the price tag on the shelf ever read “gloss almond” not to mention it says that right on the friggin’ can!

  2. Found this on the Home Depot website. I say drop ’em a line!

  3. So I was excited to read you’re getting things all fixed up and knowing you’ll have a good time doing it UNTIL I got to the point about “If only I had.. oh… and El Camino!” HOW SAD! Hope you get a latter and get to have lots of painting fun! Don’t sniff it!

  4. Since I got my eye fixed I am thinking about taking you up on the offer to paint my car! WOW, it looks BAD!

    Oh, wait, you didn’t offer to paint my car! ha ha
