Bear with me for a bit of backstory, k?
Daniel Hudson (DHuddy41) is a pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He's a nice guy and one of my favorite players. This is Daniel Hudson in action:

Careful What You Wish For

Authors: JayneCharlie came home from work early on Friday because of rain. So early, in fact, that I was still sound asleep. He made fun of me because I was still sleeping at 10 a.m. and I made fun of him because he says that half the day is gone by 10 a.m. He stood by my bed and said, "Get-up-get-up-get-up-get-up!" until finally...

That Is The Question

Authors: JayneTo beadboard or not to beadboard? That is the question. You can't really see it in this crappy pic I took with my phone last night, but the walls are pretty yucky-looking in here. Not, however, as yucky-looking as they used to be...When I bought the house, this bathroom had vinyl flooring nailed to the walls about...
Yard of the Month

Authors: JayneThe Garden Club will be over any minute now to award me Yard of the Month.
It's a good thing Charlie mowed yesterday and I stacked up the bricks and cinder blocks so neatly.
Too bad the ladies of the Garden Club don't have any place to sit and have a nice cold glass of sweet tea...since Flint came over and took the patio out this...
The Serenity Prayer Bathroom

Authors: JayneThese are the things I hate about the bathroom at the back of the house:
1. It's 4 feet wide and 11 feet long.
2. The vinyl flooring is kinda not pretty.
3. The vanity is ugly and falling apart.
4. The only outlet in there is on the fixture above the vanity.
5. There is no HVAC back there.
6. The shower...

Authors: JayneCharlie came over to my house after he got off work yesterday.
"What're you doin?" he asked.
"I'm lookin for Louis so I can put him in the house before I go to work," I said. "I've been lookin for him for 20 minutes and I can't find him."
Usually when I'm looking for Louis Cat, I step out into the alley and yell, "Louuuuuis,...

Authors: JayneOver at The Coal Miner's Despair, Charlie and White Trash Bob are rebuilding WTB's porch. (I don't really know why Bob calls his house that, except that it really was built by a coal miner sometime in the 1890s.) The porch wasn't horrible before, but it did need some help. What they've done so far looks fabulous.

Authors: JayneFriday and Saturday we finally got some rain. Lots of rain. Lovely, slow, steady, soaking rain that turned everything green again. Because that rain came from the edges of Hurricane Isaac, there was also a lot of wind. I worried about Mean Little Marie out in the rain. (I don't know if I told y'all this or...

Authors: JayneWay back in May, I bought picture rail and painted it. Charlie said, "The next time it rains on a day that neither one of us is workin, we'll put that up." Who knew it would be September before that happened??
So yesterday we hung picture rail all day. This is the only in-progress photo I have:
