Truth in blogging

I hear there's a move to require bloggers to reveal when they have received something back when they have promoted something. So I feel I have to reveal that in exchange for talking up the caboose restoration, they have allowed me to strip copious amounts of paint.

I feel a lot of weight off my chest.


  1. I wish someone would give me yarn I can talk about.

    That's quite a job you've done there. Do you have any layers of skin left?

  2. Well, this is mostly the before picture. I try to cover up as best I can to lessen the possible exposure to lead, and to not drag it home or to the restaurant were we dine for lunch. It's all over my head, literally and figuratively. I put on goggles, respirator, hat, and gloves, work 10-15 minutes then my arms get tired and I take off everything and take a 20 minute break, then do it all over again. They like me, they really really like me!

  3. Wow! I didn't think about the lead. What a project this must be!

  4. And I must reveal that I love a sentence which uses the word "copious" and is NOT referring to any bodily fluid. Strip away with a clear conscience, my friend!!
