THE PAINTING HAS STARTED

BUT FIRST THE WEATHER UPDATE

This morning it was 0C/32F – as of 9:00AM.  The HIGH today is going to be a whopping 5C/41F and right now there are those tiny white things flying through the air.  SNOW !!

There is hope on the horizon though as the forecast is saying on Monday it will start to warm up.  By Wednesday it will be in the High 60’s !!  YEAH !!

I’m about one hour North of Toronto and there is at least a 5 degree (Celsius) difference in the temps.

Yesterday I took the loaner car and took Bennie to the Groomer.  So he’s clean now (for awhile anyways ! LOL) and showin’ off a new haircut – ready for the warmer temps.  While waiting for him I went to see my buddy Jo and we went to the Golden Griddle (one of my favourite restaurants) for a late lunch.

Here’s the progress as of yesterday.  These are the two last compartment doors that got the most damage.

01

It will be interesting to see how they manage to get the three colours back in these doors. The red arrow in the next pic shows that these doors have a light grey; a dark grey and a little bit of the red swirl in them.

SIDE

Thankfully the bottom part of the back is all one colour.

Jenn said they are doing the smallest colour first.  So I’m guessing the parts exposed are the areas where the dark grey is.

An awful reminder of why I’m here !!

That’s Paul, the Painter, way down the back there.

It’s going to be a L – O – N – G weekend.

    1. Bob, I keep checking the forecast - it's supposed to warm up next week. That will be nice !

      We have to get together before I head out again.

  3. My guess is that their colors will be right-on. That's what I'm hoping for your too. Bennie probably wishes he had waited until it was warmer to get his hair trimmed!

  4. The RV is looking good! Bennie probably needs a coat now. He is so cute.
