Looking at the New Old Days

What I'm reading: 7th Heaven by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro; Crime Scene at Cardwell Ranch, by B.J. Daniels; Colby vs. Colby, by Debra Webb

First: Catherine Kean will be announcing her winner after 5 PM today, so there's still time to read her post, leave a comment, and be entered in the drawing.

This is a very short post today, as we met with our realtor last night and he said we need to have the house ready to show before the Memorial Day weekend. As I type, the painter is working up his estimate to do the interior painting required to make the house presentable. It's turning into more work (and money) because the realtor also said that our walls had too much "stuff" on them, which means if we take it off, that leaves nail holes, which means we need a lot more painting done. Since the walls haven't been painted in years and years, there's no way the same paint color is the same paint color -- fading, etc.

So, as we scramble to get things ready, I'll leave you with a couple of cartoons that actually triggered my thoughts for Monday's Good Old Days post.

The first is "Pickles" by Brain Crane

The next is "Mutts" by Patrick McDonnell

Don't forget - read and comment on Catherine Kean's post by 5 PM today. And check back to see if you're the winner.
