VAC Training Center, Fort Des Moines, Iowa ~ July 1944
« on: February 25, 2019, 11:33:45 AM »
Good Morning to all.  I am still breathing.  My platoon work is coming along, be it slowly.  Thought I'd share my WIP.

The red shows you about where I am at this time.  I've been up all over the picture more than once, between finished up on another home project.  The hardest part, to me, is the slow and tedious clean up of the uniforms.  The water damage looks slight but not when you bring it up to see close.  Anyway, the electricians are out this morning to put up a bathroom light so, here you go and here I go.   :hug:

Yes, Lynn, it has been.

These women stepped up to support their country during a time of war.  Each one has a story to tell.

Wait until a another picture that comes up that I favor and until then, Shadow, I will finish the closet area in the master bath. More has been done since this shot. This week I hope to finish it.

Bite your tongue, Lynn.  DIY, while rewarding on many levels, is a hard task master while doing it.  I'm ready to be done.  lol

Great job Candy!  (both photo and closet)
I won't ask you to redo mine, although I wouldn't mind it if you did...  :halo:

Wow Candy. Looking really good. Wish we had you with us last week. Folks had a plumber out to redo their bath and his assistant cut through a pipe without turning off the water. Needless to say, ALL the spring cleaning is done now  ::)
