Seems like life has just been getting more hectic lately, though I can't really say why. I helped somebody move yesterday, so that consumed pretty much the whole day. Even so, I still seem to miss big events that have been taking place in Detroit lately. While at work on Friday, I could tell by the number of people, as well as the age group, that something had to be going on in Detroit. Yet I couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was.
I picked up a few newspapers yesterday, because of the front page headlines in regards to Tiger Stadium, and that was when it hit me. The Vans Warp Tour was taking place in downtown Detroit, at and around Comerica Park. I've never hit that conert tour before, and even had I known about it ahead of time, wouldn't have made it this year. I'm glad to see that it was downtown though.
Another show, which was unknown to me until reading about it online today, was a national model train show at Cobo. I would have simply LOVED to check this show out. Model trains are something that I'll never out grow. There is simply some sort of facination with them, perhaps its the small world/environment that the true enthusiasts create with their layouts. Anyways, yet another event that I'll miss out on.
I'll be spending the Sunday working on the house yet again, though I have the crew of mom, dad, and grandma coming up to give a lending hand. Last weekend I tore the wallpaper off the walls in my dining room, leaving one less room with flowers plastered all over the place. I still have half of my bedroom to do, as well as the bathroom, then that is all there is in regards to wallpaper, thank God!
I'm going to be concentrating on scraping paint on the outside of the house, hoping to get some more painting done over the next few weeks. I'm having all new gutters installed on my house and garage this week, so hopefully the fuckin' scrappers will stay away from my downspouts on the alley side, as they are notorious for stealing them. I also have a new grill sitting in the box out in the garage, which I may get around to assembling today, since my current grill is on it's last leg with a rusted out burner, heat shield, among other isues.
The weekly car progress will have to wait a few more days, but I will continue to put forth an effort to start reassembling the car, which I will report on my automotive blog. So, it's out to the yard for me to get started on today's list.
