Friday updates

My Mike Matheny-signed baseball has a case!


The bedroom/master bath reno is going well.


Don’t you just love the Thibaut “Luzon” wallpaper?


I am hoping to get things semi-put-back to normal this weekend if the painting is finished. Isn’t it going to be great?

The boy and daughter #3 and her  parents are coming over for dinner on Sunday for a Labor Day bar-b-que.

Square dancing will be optional.


What are you up to this three-day Labor Day weekend? You might want to watch a good working-man movie such as The Grapes of Wrath (1940), The Bicycle Thief (1948), 9 to 5 (1980), On the Waterfront (1954)  or the documentary Harlan County U.S.A. (1976).


Bruno and Antonio Ricci consider their options in this classic De Sica film.

I can’t say this is a favorite genre of mine, but these are all excellent movies.

Well, have a good weekend!

Come, labor on!
Who dares stand idle, on the harvest plain
While all around him waves the golden grain?
And to each servant does the Master say,
Go work today.
