I was watching a documentary movie about Keith Richard, Under the Influence, very nice stuff about him, who influenced him, even some of his very private family life. I got a nice quote from him, 'No one wants to get old, but no one wants to die young either.'
All the rain we got last evening and night was a sprinkling about 4:00 PM, so the Diamond Brite was able to set and harden up in great fashion. On with today's activities.
A not too unusual occurrence down here is stores running out of things just when you wanted or needed to buy it. Case in point with our project. The sky blue paint color that we are using on this project. It comes from Sherwin Williams paints in Corozal. They're out of the pigments needed to mix it (it's in their computer), and we need another gallon. Can't do anything about it except wait for it to come in. SW says probably this coming week. There you go.
Case in point again. Diamond Brite, the coating we're using as the final cover for the pool itself (the white stuff), comes from Island Pool Supply over in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. IPS says they'll be out of it for two weeks. Can't do anything about it except wait for it to come in. There you go (Didn't I just hear that somewhere?).
Luckily, we have another minor project for them to work on in the interim. Our fence at the very back. It broke due to the same issues that affected the pool. Mario's boys will be fixing that along with patching the dock hole and the remains of the ditch in the garden adjacent to the fence.
So, what's going to be happening this week is finishing the Diamond Brite edging on the pool, at least till it runs out, sealing the deck and ramp floors, hooking up wiring and plumbing for the waterfall motor, hooking up the new water supply for both the house and the pool, a small light above the waterfall, ramp railings and pump house door, and hooking up the deck lights and speaker, and screen doors with doggie doors for either side of the deck. I think that's about all the little stuff that's hanging fire.
Here's what happened Friday.
