Stinky

My house reeks.

We are finally in the home stretch of having the lower level completed – only a few weeks left to go. Right now they’re working on staining the wood, and goodness me but there is a lot of wood down there to stain.

Whenever I think of the word ‘stinky’ my mind goes to the movie Green Mile. They’re all on death row, and the crazy guy in the corner cell starts singing, “Barbeque, me and you, stinky pinky, pew, pew, pew.” Yeah, a little morose. But it happens every time.

Do you connect random things with old movies?

Bobbi Jo offered Tammy and I the opportunity to try this incredible product for a month.… [Continue Reading]
