New House.... -- 3/10/2014

Willie:  Herb, I have been thinking of rearranging the furniture in the living room.

     Herb:  OK.

Willie:  I would like the TV to be on the north wall toward the Laguna Madre.

     Herb:  Willie, the TV is built in to the entertainment center.

Willie:  And your point is....

     Herb:  You cannot just move the entertainment center.  It is large, it is                     attached to the wall, and it will not fit between the windows on the wall you selected.

Willie:  So?

Herb:  Willie?

Willie:  Oh, I get it -- let's get the cabinet guy who built it to come dismantle and fix it like new.  Now what was is name?     Also, I would like to have the living room furniture moved to the west side of the great room and the dining room moved to the east. 

In preparation for the work to begin, Herb and I unload all the books, DVDs, games, camera monitors, keepsakes and whatnots onto the kitchen counter, as well as onto the beds and floors of the two guest rooms.  It looks like hoarders!

Phillipe, the cabinet maker, comes to assess the project and promises his crew will be here manana.  A couple of hours work and the entertainment center is in several pieces with the TV module is installed on the north wall toward the bay.  Amazing how well and quickly they work!

Jose Cuts Access

Herb calculates where the wire should enter under the entertainment center in its new location and drills a hole in my tile floor!!!  Yea!  He measures correctly!  Now just a little repair work on the baseboard and a little paint and it is just like new.

Dining room furniture moves from one side of the great room to the other.  
We take two leaves out of the dining table to make ample room for a cozy dinner for six in the east side of the room.  Living room furniture moves to the west side.   Rearrange, and then rearrange again.

Rugs relocate or go away for a totally different look.

I think I have a new house, and I like it.

Cozy dinner for Sam, Myrna (Herb) Inez and Bob
