What a pleasant surprise to find out that the trim paint we bought and started using over 11 years ago can still be used! Thanks to Debbie at the Salem Lowe’s store for the meticulous job she did pouring the paint into a new container and mixing us up a sample with all the new numbers for future purchase, saving us at least $40. It really does pay to store your unused paint properly, especially if you plan on continuing with that particular color anywhere else years later.
My contribution to #TBT (throw-back Thursday) … an elaborate practical joke we played on a co-worker almost 20 years ago. Found by my (now retired) Bobbsey Twin as she was cleaning her office. Rick Zirkle, Leo Bicknell, Phil Benchoff and a few other co-conspirators should remember this well, as we moved some heavy furniture from one of Gay’s storage rooms to her house to keep Phil occupied while his office doors made the rounds.
I am not affiliated with the Montgomery County Friends of Animal Care & Control (FACC), but I promised a co-worker I would help spread the word.
On Sunday, October 20, 2013, the FACC is sponsoring “Bark in the Alley“, an afternoon of family bowling fun at the NRV SuperBowl in Christiansburg. The event takes place from 1pm – 3pm. Funds raised through this event will support their continued efforts on behalf of shelter dogs. A flyer with more information is available HERE. If you are looking for something different to do, consider being a part of Bark in the Alley on Sunday, October 20.
