From the “God help us — now she thinks she’s Bob Vila” files: I successfully replaced the drywall in Unit Five today. I only messed up one piece before I figured out that it worked better if Joey helped me hang onto the big sheets while I installed them. It wasn’t really hard, but it was time-consuming, and I had to work slowly and measure things carefully to make sure everything came out right.
I could lay carpet tomorrow, but I think I’d rather replace sinks. (In case you were wondering, I wield a mean faucet wrench.)
In the interest of making the Tumbleweed the best it can possibly be, I have a question for my readers: What is your favorite motel on Route 66 (or anywhere else, for that matter), and what little details make it special? I’ve come up with a pretty good list of stuff I look for in a motel room, but I’d like some input from other people. Any ideas?
