St. Marys and Baddog Creation

I'm heading for St. Marys this week.  It's time to make Spring repairs to the little yellow house.
I made a repair to the front porch two Springs ago. With all the tromping feet along with the damp sticky coastal climate, wood has a tough life here.  I wish I had a photo of the finished repair. I did a GREAT JOB! Used power tools! The repair still looks good, (zoom top pic for the amazing results) but now everything's rotting away around it! It's getting down right dangerous around the edges. 
So, the carpenter will meet me there on Tuesday to replace the whole porch floor along with new heftier posts and railings. I'll take pictures as we go. You'll see the results of the hard work when I return home. 
Other news...
Last week I painted another Good Baddog.  If you're interested, I started with a base coat of light khaki, then threw on some raw umber for texture. I drew on the pattern and started with red. I love red.
Hunk a burnin' Elvis. 
Mona Lisa hair.
Mangy, but getting there.
Almost...
Done! This Good Baddog now lives with a very nice crazy lady in New York. Thank you, Martha!
Have a great week, y'all! See you when I return.
Love, 
Ronnie
