Much needed weekend

Moss Point,  MS

We are currently near Cullman Al visiting son and family.  It was a long drive up here yesterday - 355 miles.  We will return to Moss Point tomorrow.   Tonight we will take the family out for dinner.

NOMADS know what they are doing by having us work only 4 days a week.   Not sure about the rest of the crew but our bodies just could not handle one more day.

From left Lynn McClleland from Tn,  Leonard and me,  Wayne and Edie Mahan who are fulltimers like us, Paul Hope who is overseeing various projects through Community of Hope here in Moss Point and Earl McClelland from Tn.

What a church!   The church was founded in 1875.    There is something going on all the time.

We are working on two homes in the community.    In one house we are installing and painting both trim inside and out.

Completing and re-installing the washer and dryer in the laundry room.

Enclosing the hot water heater that sits outside on a small platform.

Hanging and painting  new T1-11 siding on the back wall of the house.

Eventually we will remove a decayed deck and replace with new steps leading into the house.

At the other house we are removing ceilings due to massive roof leaks and lots of black mold.  What an ugly job this is.  

Yup, good to have three days off!

Hey lady - you be really careful of that black mold - bad stuff for the respiratory system!

Glad you got a long weekend off- but driving that far is not very relaxing!

Hope to see you soon on the travels :)

Love ya!

Wow! that's a long drive. We think Rotorua is far enough 254km/145 miles. Of course we do longer drives but I really dislike being in the car more than 5 hours on any one day.

Thanks for kind words and thoughts. It has been an amazing weekand it's kind of hard now as we settle back into the reality of everyday life.

That is a lot of work. People like you and Len make for a better world...But then again working helps you to keep Len out of trouble :-) too bad y ou have to get the aches and pains too, but he doesnt even realize the sacrafice you are making to keep him on the strait and narrow.
