This picture makes my little girl look like a full sized lab:
She is still such a bundle of joy and happiness, if only we could be as innocent and happy as puppies are.
Action Painting has the front third floor finished and most of the Mansion facing the Courtyard finished:
Such great people, I’ve had many contractors here many have been good, but I can’t think of any that has made me as happy as Don and his crew. #1 excellent job painting, #2 extremely respectful of my property and people. #4 they’re even doing some minor wood repair as hey move along. Don’ phone number is 423-4036458. They totally clean up each day. A real find if you are looking for interior or exterior painting done.
Yes, i had a minor stroke two weeks ago. I might be the only person you know that’s thankful that I had a stroke, because of it, they did a MRI that showed I had a potential life threatening condition in my right carotid artery. I had the surgery Wednesday. With the Inn being closed for painting it was a good time to have this fixed. They released me from AGH the next day (yesterday, Thursday) and I felt like I was hit by a truck an today I just feel very tired. My neck looks petty scarey. I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. #1 i would like to thank my sister Sue who was by my side through most of it. My good friends Tony and Sue came down from Center County to see me off for this procedure an Dave and Claire came to the hospital to see me through it. Of course there’s my loyal employee and great friend Dee who made me go to AGH when I first had the stroke and has been here since with such true concern about my health and well being. And so many people have called or stopped by John and Jeff walked over from their condo in the Carlyle House with their yellow lab Remi to see me earlier in the week to express their concern and brought me a bottle of wine and pastries to cheer me up. This reminds me of a conversation I recently had with someone when he bought a house and how he said “None of my friends had my back, maybe I need new friends”, no buddy, you need to learn to be a true friend up front like my friend for years Kerry Kennedy from KS Kenndey Floral who’s always at my side when I need something. True friends are worth more than your new house or my Inn. You can’t look at friends for what they can do for you, you need to appreciate them day to day for what a wonderful gift they are to your life. And with that I want to thank those above as well as Jeff at at Peppi’s, Jeff at the Inn on the Mexican War Streets as well as Paula and Lenny across the street. I want to apologize to anyone I missed in the above, my mind is not 100% I see major progress from when I first had the stroke and will will be back soon and better than ever.
Ty resigned without notice two weeks ago and The Parador is surviving just fine.
Thank you all my wonderful friends,
