Painted Red

A few weeks ago Dawn started the "Big Move" by getting together with her friend Paula, who now lives in the southern part of Miami-Dade County, and my ex, Claudia who lives a few blocks away from me. They're all friends. The girls had a "painting party" and we now have a magenta kitchen. Then this past weekend her friend Tom and his son Morgan drove down from Tampa in his extended cab F350 pick-up truck towing a trailer full of some of Dawn's furniture, boxes, and a stove that actually works. I was down to one functioning burner on the old stove, but with a microwave, an electric fry pan, a toaster, a coffee maker, and a toaster oven who needs multiple burners, right? Well, it seems that women actually use stoves for cooking!

We had to take the oven door off the old stove to fit it through the back door of the house. Somehow the oven door didn't make it out to the trash pile. It was still on the back porch next morning when somebody made off with the old stove.

Another of Dawn's kitchen remodeling ideas was a fancy light fixture to replace the ceiling fan, and here you can see Tom taking down the fan as his son Morgan hands things to him. A couple of shadeless table lamps supplied the light until the fixture was installed. Tom also replaced a light switch so the front porch light now works for the first time in months.
