The remodeling begins

Miro decided to begin his home remodeling project by bringing a lamp crashing to the floor. Fortunately, the noise of the breaking bulb startled him into jumping back as I crossed the room in a single bound to keep dogs away from the glass. I don't know what he had against the lamp--my late husband's childhood bedside lamp--sitting quietly on a desk. (The photo shows what's left of the broken bulb. The paper shade suffered dents.)

Outside he conducted a Big Dig in the gravel, scratching his way into cement-hard dirt. Being broad but shallow, the excavation doesn't really show in the photo but here it is anyway.

He checked the dishwasher for necessary repairs.

Then he re-arranged the living room.
It's too bad the photo can't convey the true obstacle-course feeling.

Miro is quite proud of his work

but Alanis is ashamed to be seen in such a mess.

  4. Good work Miro,
    Lamps are good, so are the plug ins, like saws, TVs...
    That really gets uprights flying, then they gotta go to the Hardware store and that creats work.
    Which we love to see them doing something other than the love of the picture box.

  5. What a crazy puppy! Fasten your seatbelt ...
