Bigness has been working on the big renovation since September, off and on, and since January in serious earnest getting it ready to rent. I didn't take any before photos, because I am unable to record such nastyness. Like Miss Lois, Bigness is a hands-off-landlord. He expects 3 things from his tennants, pay your rent on time, keep the place clean and in good working condition and don't freakin complain all the time. (the last one is something I try to work on a daily basis) The tennant prior had lived there or 3 years and I have never seen such nastyness except in the ghettos of downtown Detroit. Holes knocked in walls, garbage stewn everywhere. So all that aside, he has been a miracle worker making a silk purse from a sow's ear and transforming it into the largest beachfront luxury rental on Caye Caulker. Wow what a lot of work. I picked the colors, made the bedspreads and curtains and decorated, that was the easy part. At a certain point the project looked so big I thought it would never be finished, but he kept working and working and working.
So without further ado... ta daaaaaaa!

I wish I lived there.
Maybe someday I will.
He promised me that our side of the house would be a nice as this, but didn't say if would be this century or next.
IS HELL FREEZING OVER?
My mom emailed and wants to come for a visit. She's bringing Aunt Doris, which is good. Aunt Doris isn't my real aunt, but has been around our family since before I was born. Aunt Doris keeps my mom in check and is the kind of lady that, even if your baby is "illigitimate," she'll still crochet you a baby blanket.
