B.B. King & Lucille

85 years old and still performing 300 nights a year. I have seen B.B. King several times and never been disappointed. Even at 85 he is still entertaining and a true Gentleman on stage.

I had the pleasure of seeing him last night in Vancouver, B.C.

The Lucille saga begins with her in the winter of 1949, when King – who turned 85 on Sept. 16, 2010 – was playing a Twist, Arkansas dance. A fight broke out and the burning barrel of kerosene that was used to heat the room spilled, spreading its flaming contents. Panic ensued as the fire began to cover the floor. Everybody, including King, fled. Once outside, he realized he’d left his prized guitar, a $30 Gibson acoustic, and returned to retrieve it.

The next day King learned two people had died in the blaze, and that the fight triggering the conflagration was over a woman named Lucille. He renamed his Gibson after her that day, as a reminder to never do anything as stupid as fight over a woman or enter a burning building again.

I've been floored!

I'm so excited! The floor is finished, except for a couple of coats of floor finish after the rest of the construction is finished. This should be the end of the dust storm that has been happening in the house. These photo's don't do the color justice, it is much more even and deeper than these look. The square are cut at 3' centers and are grouted in. I am so excited, now I can clean the windows as I wait for the cabinets to be painted and then installed.

Kitchen Ceiling Update

Here is the ceiling ready for lights and speakers to be installed, wall color should be going up today as well!

This part of the project was very time consuming, it always seemed like there was one more layer of trim to go up be fore everything could be painted. But what a difference when it was done.

Penny for your thoughts

I was looking through some flooring ideas tonight and I came across this article. I don't think I will try this one at home, but I kinda like the effect on the walls, might be nice in a larger walk in shower. The nickels are interesting too.
