Today...ah, today! Twin beds for the guest room are being delivered. "California" length beds, since everyone we know seems to be what Frank Lloyd Wright called "a weed." Shoved together they become a king-sized bed, but we would keep them apart because we don't want to encourage any sort of hanky-panky, do we?

This will create the second guest room (after we get sheets, of course). Pat has (again) vetoed my suggestion that we "westernize" the room with a moose or elk head and cowhides instead of blankets, with a floor lamp made from an old rifle between the beds. She just goes on and on about "good taste" and "over my dead body!".

Since the room's in the basement I thought a dungeon look -- shackles, an iron maiden, that sort of thing -- might be appropriate, but she said something about our friends "not being into that sort of thing." She also vetoed my idea about storing black powder and ammunition in the new guest room.

Now, all we have to do is get a new outside door and get the bathroom renovated a bit. Contributions (in US dollars) are welcome.
