Corvette

My brother Rick bought this Corvette a few years ago and and fixed it up really nice. He had the help of my brother Dave, who owns an auto body shop. When we were visiting my Dad the other day, he pulled up and we were finally able to see it. I gave it a preliminary inspection and it looked real real nice.
It reminds me about his daughter back when she was a little kid. She loved the song "Little Red Corvette" by Prince and she always said that when she got bigger, she would buy one for him. Well, he ended getting one on his own. So now she is free from her obligation....hehehe
While we were busy talking, my wife was busy taking pictures. Thanks hon!
My daughter even struck a pose on this hot ride lol.
No way would EJ let a chance like this pass by, he gave it a once over too.
Do you see the photographer?
Is this good enough for Ruby Tuesday?

God Really Works in Mysterious Ways!

Shifting from medical course into a business course is not really my best personal choice because I love studying about medical stuff but since the job opportunity is not looking good to the course I am taking, I have to shift. In a way, business is working good for me because the school just refunded me some money today for changing my course.

I was in the library today and checking my email when my phone rang, I panicked because we are not allowed to talk on the phone inside. It's my wife, so I answered it. She asked me about the check that we got in the mail from my school today. I told her that I don't have any idea so I went to the Admin and asked them about it. They told me that it was because I changed my course before it ended so I got a refund. I asked them again if I have to return it to the VA and they said no. So I was happy about it since I got ripped off with my book stipend and housing allowance this term.

Bungee Cords

I bought a bundle of these bungee cords to carry in the truck, in the event that I may need to tie something down. Once the weather warmed up, I let the kids play in the truck and they found my stash of bungee cords. I was amazed that they were able to have so much fun with these things and even asked to play with them again the next day.

EJ was getting frustrated here because his Mom wanted him to go inside the house and eat lunch but he did not want to lol.

Have a lovely week everyone!

Basement Renovation

Three years ago, my wife and I decided to renovate our basement because it looked like heck. Our home is an older house built in the fifties and nothing had ever been upgraded. The basement was more like a dungeon with asbestos tile all around. The bathroom was merely an enclosed area made of glazed block and a pipe coming out of the wall for water. There was so much mold and mildew, it was disgusting. We decided that it was as much of a health risk as it was ugly, so we jumped in right away and renovated. My Dad helped me to bust out and remove old concrete and block and my loving wife and daughter helped me to lay tile and paint. Here is the laundry room now.
....and the new bathroom.. The bathroom actually looks much better than the pics show. The lighting prevented any good shots. I still have to install a toilet paper holder in order to finish the job but just haven't gotten around to it just yet...hehehe

I added this shower so that when we decide to take shower after our workout, we don't have to go upstairs, we can just jump right in down here. Pardon for the unclear glass, my wife just got out from shower after her work out when these photos were taken.
We are not done with the renovation yet as we still have to put ceiling in the laundry area. Doing renovation inside your home is fun, I definitely love doing projects like these. My wife and I are DIYers and we always let the kids help. They seem to love it as much as we do.
