Stripping in Public

Heaven help us, the things we'll resort to.

Even stripping in public. With children present.

I mean, when you've got a 12' piece of baseboard trim and it won't make the turn on the basement steps, what are you going to do?

You put down the tarps and the papers, set up the sawhorses, and strip it on the back porch. With the three-year-old from next door standing on his back porch, yelling over the fence all about the "'Lympics!!" which he's been watching non-stop with his dad, seemingly ever since he was born.

Just the one piece done this evening. The light failed, and anyway, that baseboard's going nowhere till I glue the second cracked-off piece back on. Only have two sets of pipe clamps--and one pair of sawhorses--to my name.

No doubt to the great amusement and edification of the neighbors!
