My New Love (Don't worry COG, I still love you, too)

Be Still My Beating Heart.... The Paslode Cordless Nail Gun. Even writing that musical, beloved name makes my heart beat a little faster.

I rented it, but I want to buy one now. It made possible a project I have been working hard on and which I will show you when I am done.

Here's a hint - a picture of my dining room as it was last week with all the furniture pushed to one side so I could access the walls.

The thing about power tools is they are great equalizers. I am little, weak, and old but with power tools I can do nearly the same work as someone younger, bigger, stronger. Technology is wonderful that way.

Don't forget to use some screws as well to make things stronger.

I am so sorry I've not been accessing any blogs and had missed all your wonderful descriptions of life as a part-time Brightonian(?) The pink couch is hilarious. Out in a week!! Dern white of 'em.

There is a British couple, Wendy and Martin Small, who used to live in Brighton, so I've forwarded them COG's email to me giving his website. If they don't pick up yours, I'll alert them, all those delicious details about British life. --
