Finally finished remodeling my kitchen.


It's amazing how much difference raising the ceiling a foot and a half makes in how roomy a kitchen looks.....

Wow. It's really amazing how much your kitchen now resembles the interior of the chapel at Christ Church College in Oxford, England. Uncanny, really.
It's also amazing how you did all that in the past week....
:)
I'm glad you enjoyed the picture CD I burned for you. FYI: the pic of you in the car isn't sepia (sepia is that old time browny look); I merely faded all the colors so it looks like an old print from 1972 or so. Sorry it turned your car black, but I thought it looked cool anyway. Feel free to post it if you want.
The pic of you standing on the old railroad bridge is also done with faded color.
If you want a true sepia pic, try the one of the English porter in a bowler hat making tourists stay off the grass in Oxford. That's sepia.
I think I also put in a sepia one of an old house up at This Is The Place state park.
The one of the stove in the Porter Rockwell cabin has been color-enhanced to make it look that way.
And all the pictures on the CD have been cropped.
I love playing with iPhoto 08. Unfortunately, my laptop is too old to handle it, so it means using my parents' computer to play around. Still, if it inspires you to redecorate your kitchen, I guess it was all worth it.

Yeah, I kinda knew it wasn't full sepia, just kinda sepiaish. But either way, and actually because of, the picture looks great with the car black. When and if I ever repaint it, I just may go for black. Which was the actual color of Steve McGarrett's 4 door hardtop. It was actually a Mercury Marquis, which really just an LTD sold under the Mercury badge. But I digress. The picture looks really cool, brings me back to the days of my youth....

Oh, did you see the picture of the spare room since it's remodel? On the front page? I always wanted my own office...

Ah, yes, that faded Poloroid look...
Glad you liked the car black,
Wish I knew the rest of what you were talking about in that comment, but remember: I'm in the remedial auto class, and you have to explain things slowly....
By the way, Dad told me that one of the gizmos on his new Cadillac tells him the exact air pressure in each tire and any given time. Something tells me that Dad will just take out an air gauge anyway.

Ok, the remedial explanation: My car in your picture looks just like the car they drove in the old Hawaii Five-0 series.

Oh! Perhaps if I had ever watched much of that show, I would've recognized it!
I do better with Gilligan's Island, but there weren't exactly a whole lot of cars in that show.....

Yeah, just that one car, but I think they made a bunch of chop-sticks out of it for the going-away luau.
