Opening Day 2012
As he already reported, we arrived at Shangri La only to discover that we had forgotten pillows, towels, socks and underwear. Much better than forgetting the keys, though, so there's no need to complain.
I had a deadline to meet, so I spent much of our Saturday down in Brattleboro writing an article and searching for underwear while The Vermonster framed out the back deck. He also installed the hose thingy in the picture above. Now we're ready to host Shangri La's first annual fundraising car wash and sprinkler party.
Hopefully over the next few trips we'll be able to finish off the deck, prime the bathroom and install the vanity. Despite the fact that the sink isn't hooked up to the water yet, I consistently try to turn it on to brush my teeth and wash my hands. Old habits die hard.
