On June 20th, I posted about a guy near my house who was selling his car and had written the phone number from the inside of the car so that it showed up backwards.
Just to keep you updated: as of yesterday, he still hasn't sold the car.
He may want to reconsider his business model. Or write the phone number the right way.
In the meantime, the remodeling continues. They've got the bathtub, kitchen appliances and cabinets in, though nothing's hooked up. The new bathroom tiles are in, but not grouted yet. It's encouraging to see some progress, though the lack of a kitchen and shower is annoying.
It's a big improvement over this:
I dealt with the last of the flood damage. There was some sad news-- Kim lost some cookbooks. One of them was a family cookbook that had some sentimental value. She also lost some clothes.
I was, however, able to save her Motorhead t-shirt. It was the first gift I ever gave her. I know-- ever the romantic.
I did have one pleasant surprise: my landlord had been wrong. My yearbooks weren't soaked. I found them safe and dry in the plastic bin I stored them in last year.
