Dads Favorite Hobby






Hi everyone, well back to work tomorrow. It was a beautiful weekend though. Dad did begin to paint their house. They chose a cafe cream with white trim. My folks live in a log house. Its been red and blue and now cafe cream. His plan is to paint one side every week. His cars keep him busy. Both my parents retired the same day 9 yrs ago. My mom was a hair stylist for 30 some yrs. and my dad is a welder. He keeps busy in the garage customizing cars. He tries to build and sell one a yr. This is the one he just finished up and as you can see he has one already started. My husband and brother also have the "custom bug" they also share the hobby. Ill have to post our car and garage sometime. The neighbors refer to Mikes garage as the (toolshmahall) Well I had better turn in for the night. Everyone have a great Monday. Ive got a crate of Carmel apples to take to school tomorrow. Thanks Pickled Peppers Patch!!

Love the color your Dad used on the house! He really has some cool cars! I would never see my hubby if he had a garage like that!
