Grand Isle, LA – RV – Feb. 11-17, 2024

Grand Isle, LA – RV – March 12-18, 2023

Work is progressing at Miss Joy’s home.  We did a lot of mudding, sanding, sanding, sanding and painting this week.  By the end of each day there was considerable moaning and groaning from stiff, achy arms and legs from we “older” people. ...

Grand Isle, LA – RV – March 5-11, 2023

Work progressed this week on Miss Joy’s home.  We mudded and sanded until we were dreaming about it at night.   It was a joyous occasion when we were able to prime and paint the first bedroom!  The weather has turned warm and humid and without...
