Dad’s Birthday Present

On May 21, 2007 my Dad turned 80. What to get him for his Birthday Present? Yep I'm going to paint his front bedroom. What a surprise it was to him and my mom that they would be getting their bedroom painted. Yesterday, Friday May 25 I started the painting. When I arrived around 9:30am I was surprised to see he had the closet emptied, and everything covered ready for me to arrive. Mom said he has been working on the room a little each day getting it ready for me.

Today I finished the painting of the bedroom. Two coats were applied to the ceiling and walls. Including the closet. I have to say I did a pretty good job, knowing how picky Dad is. When I told them it was done they both headed for the room. I was kind of expecting some criticism here, but heard nothing but praises and happiness. He did say as I was leaving that it was the best present he has ever gotten. Now if you would know my Dad, that statement took allot for him to say. He has a very hard time expressing his satisfaction with anyone. I smiled as I looked him in the eye and said as I departed, maybe I'll be able to do this again. I know he knew what I meant.

Tomorrow if the weather clears I plan on working on the Motor home. Getting it ready for our vacation. It is in need of a good cleaning and wax. Now, lets hope the weather will not let me down.
