I have to finish painting the walls and scraping the floor tomorrow. We will be spending our weekend installing the upper cabinets. Hopefully I can get the flooring down on Monday and start on the base cabinets and the dishwasher.
Wish us luck.

After walking around the gardens we had dessert. We had 5 different ice creams to choose from. We had a nice relaxing time. We both felt rested and went back to work today. Me back to Wally World and Chris back to the darn kitchen floor.

Today, Laurie and I decided to take out the old flooring. (bad idea) There was 2 layers of linoleum and what looked like a layer of tar paper under that. We had to scrape the tar paper to get it to come off.
I cut the linoleum into pieces and pulled it up. (with a crowbar since it was stuck to the tar paper)
Underneath the 3 layers is hardwood flooring. We don't know why someone would have covered them with tar paper. (Maybe they used it as a vapor barrier back then) We had thought about refinishing the hardwood, but the tar has gotten into the wood grain and we aren't sure if we would be able to get the finish to look good. It looks like new linoleum will be going down.
We are off to watch the race now. (Our normal Sunday activity)
Go Jimmie #48 & Kasey #9

It's the hometown of a TV legend and this weekend fans are flocking to Jamestown for a big celebration.
Three blocks of third street in downtown Jamestown are shut down to set up booths and rides. There are many food and craft vendors lined up on third street. We have a lot of activities that go on downtown during the summer so we have to try to remember dates or we may not be able to get through downtown.
Windstream is our phone company and had a huge display set up.
There are a lot of activities going on this weekend for Lucy ~ Desi Days. Check out the website by clicking HERE.

The flavor, Stephen Colbert’s AmeriCone Dream™. It is a decadent melting pot of vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. It’s the sweet taste of liberty in your mouth.
It is the yummiest vanilla ice cream ever. The caramel is sooooo.... creamy and the fudge covered waffle cone pieces are crunchy and delicious. Have we talked you into buying yourself a treat yet? You can visit their web page by clicking HERE. The web page will tell you where the closest store is to you that has it.

We went to dinner last night at our favorite restaurant. We have gone to LaScala for our anniversary dinner 11 out the 13 years we have been married. The only problem is our anniversary seems to fall on prom weekend. Laurie usually has problems at dinner, especially when there are 25 prom girls there all wearing perfume and all their dates wearing dads cologne. (she has chemical allergy's and she sneezes non stop from all the perfume.) This year we decided to something different. We went on Sunday night instead. What a difference.
We only go to LaScala for our anniversary. We really don't know why we don't go more often except that our dinner is really special then. Take a look at the special board. It isn't because it costs too much. They always have great specials. We had crab stuffed mushrooms, salad, fries and Prime Rib (the prime rib melts in your mouth!!) and the bill wasn't even $30.00!

This green bee came to visit us while we were working also.
We hope you had a good weekend.
