Paint brushes, scrapers and sandpaper!

The house is busy with volunteers as we inch our way closer to finalizing the “lil red house”.   Our walls are being painted, kitchen cabinets, some furnishings and windows being put in place of nasty old boards that have hidden this little treasure for some time.  Between James & Darla, Ed, Tom, Jack, Cory, Rob & I we’re seeing light at the end of the tunnel.  We’ll have more professional help this coming week to finish drywall, plaster and shower so we can get this little gem “occupied”.  Been a long stretch and it will be a great anniversary present to be done by June 12th with glorious gardens in the back.

Had a knock on the “V” around 9:30 and opened the door to two officers asking about “activity” going on in the alley.  I told them the only activity I see is me taking Kayla for a doggie walk before bed.  It’s been relatively quiet, or I’m a very heavy sleeper.  Lots of questions were asked and normally I wouldn’t feel a need to answer them, but I liked these two guys and I want to think they get what we’re doing.  They mentioned having a meeting with Luis Velez (Chief of Police) about doing some work together, especially with the kids. The more we support one another the better off we’ll be.  We should try to figure out what the needs of the community are, or what needs to be done and work on it together.  There’s no doubt we’re in an area that needs something.  But we think it’s something different, something around music, art and things that make everyone feel they’re a part of the community.  We also think it should be engaging and inclusive of the (more…)
