a DIY painter

This gentleman has got what it takes to paint his house.  I wouldn't even want to climb the ladder never mind the setup in the street plus I hate painting.  I give him credit, he did a fine job.  It took him parts of two days.  I don't know if he finished the back or the other side.  I only saw him do the front and the street side.

 I never seen this kind of  setup before.  I was concerned about the wheels at the bottom and didn't want to see him on a rolling platform heading down the street..  He actually climbed up and down many times before he started painting and it never rolled.  Glad there was no problem with the brakes on the wheels.

adding another piece to the puzzle.

 The update on the solicitor's building that was being painted three weeks ago is that they chose to keep the building the same colour.  It was probably cheaper to keep it the same, oh well!

lough swilly

A view of Lough Swilly from Buncrana.  We were there last Tuesday and the beach was quiet and peaceful.

I passed this window on the way back home and thought it looked great with the colour and branches so I pressed the button.

moville fire station

The official opening of the Moville Fire Station was in December 2008.  It houses two fire trucks as you can see inside the door.  I don’t know what the town did before they got this station but they probably had assistance from a nearby town when there was a fire.

The church in the background is Moville Presbyterian Church.  This photo was taken at a later date than the first one.  The engines just left a few minutes before I came by on my way to Centra, one of our local grocery stores.
