Demolition - Day 2

Demolition Fear Scale: 1 - 10
10 = Hire someone who knows what they're doing,
so we won't knock the house down

Remodeling Tip: Plan and aim your swing with a sledge hammer, because knuckles crunched against mortar don't fare so well. A second mauled knuckle, though, will convince one to don work gloves.

Stones and mortar vanquished from the scene:

Fear Factor: 9

It's Coming Down
Fear Factor: 9½
When the elbow was out, I poked my head into the recess and under the chimney to view the warping which prompted this bitsy project and got an eyeful of chimney dirt to go with my flayed knuckles. Oopsie.

It's Out
Fear Factor: nosedives to 3

Remodeling Tip: Always check the interior parts of the shop vac to be sure the filter is still attached, lest you suck crumbled mortar and sheetrock dust into the hose and blow it out the other side of the vac, creating cumulus clouds in the adjoining room.

Is it pretty yet?

Fear factor: 2

Hope factor: 7 - stay tuned...


The LORD is compassionate and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. He will not always strive with us; Nor will He keep His anger forever. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. ~ Psalms 103:8-12
