Happy Valentine's Day from Barry and Poor House Road

The latest buzz....Burke, Howard and I made a quick recording of the Spanish love song Besame Mucho. I learned this when I played during the Spanish service at St. Andrew's oh so long ago. One of the guys told me every man should learn to sing this song. I did and am teaching others. http://www.poorhouseroad.org/

Poor House Road at the MS Blues Marathon

The latest buzz....Barry, Burke, Howard and Roger played 4 hours at the MS Blues Marathon. It was a lot of fun. Everyone was whipped. Already planning for the next adventure and next year.

Ain't No Tom in That

The latest buzz....Burke and I recorded a new song yesterday: "Ain't No Tom In That." Here is a fun music video to illustrate it.


The song was inspired by a dream Burke's mother shared with him at Thanksgiving that had he and his sister Serena rolling on the floor laughing! It's quite different from our usual style -- more "grunge" rock. Hope you enjoy it.

The New Vanity Is In!

The latest buzz....after removing the old vanity, I had Pulliam Cleaners....well.....take-care-of the site for me.  Not just cleaning, but sawing off the old, galvanized water supply lines that came out of the wall.  (There's not much a good Cleaner can't do.)

Now, we have a Barry-Special-Vanity, with a Barry-Special-Plumbing-Job.

The Ugly Old Vanity Is Gone!

The latest buzz....we removed the old vanity from one of the bathrooms. Time to do some cleanup.

The New Sink Arrived

The latest buzz....the sink arrived and I cut out the hole for it. The faucet should be here in a couple days, but the sink sure fits well.

More On The New Vanity

The latest buzz....Okay, I've added the box that will allow us to install a drop-in sink. I need to get the sink ordered and delivered now. In the meantime, I have some staining and polying to do. The hardest part so far is trying to pick out a faucet....too many choices.

Working On A New Vanity

The latest buzz....It's not really a vanity. It's supposed to ultimately look like a wash table converted into a vanity. Well, we'll see.

The picture of the back shows how most of it is put together, by drilling these neat pocket holes. Judi got me a Kreg jig for Christmas and I am finally putting it to good use.
