Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #448 - Staining the Deck with Dad (again)




Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #448 - Staining the Deck with Dad (again)

Hi Mom, Dad and I had to stain the deck again. We did this Saturday 1609.24. We power washed Friday 1609.23 in a little rain.

We considered the previous iteration to be "primer" ad the grey resulted from a catastrophic miscommunication with my wife.

Here's the link to the previous work: Hey Mom #357 Work Days with Dad.

It's a special blessing, a gift, to be able to get with my Dad and do this work together just as we used to do when we lived together, starting when I was a young boy. We should commemorate one work day by seeing a film after as we did the day Dad took me to see Jaws after working all day, a film I did not think I would be allowed to see due its graphic violence. That was 1975, and I was very sensitive and impressionable 13 years old.

And so we're work, and I treasure this time with Dad.

And now the boring photos.

First, power washing.





Then picking out a color and making sure Liesel approves.



And then we start to apply stain with edging and railings.






And then we begin to roll on the stain.



And then I forget to take a picture midway through rolling, so we're done!





There's some spots I missed but you can't see the big one on the post.
Also, there's a little grey peeking through on board edges. It may stay that way unless it drives me mad.







Thanks, Dad, the Big Guy.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
