The top of his head is at the wall, beak going to the right, then down to the neck and off the side.

The duck is just walking across to begin a new artistic effort.

That would be awesome. Somebody wrote their initials in our driveway when the house was built in '09, and I think it's kind of cool to have them there. Wish I would've thought of that.
We did spraypaint a message or two on the concrete of our floor when we replaced the carpet with bamboo. Also had to build a subfloor in one room, and left messages and a beer in the framing.

not to get the thread side-tracked but how do you like the bamboo flooring? I have been thinking about it - I like the the look and I'm getting tired of dull, boring tile.

And I'm stealing the beer idea when we do remodel.

25. I am be the only person in the world who is not that fond of bamboo. . .

we put it in our kitchen, we have an island with stools, they kind of scuff up the bamboo. Not so much that anyone notices but in the morning when the sun shines in you can see all the shine is gone off of the places where the stools are.

I'm not sure I'd use it again unless I was assured it wouldn't happen again. If I were doing it over, I'd consider the tile that looks like wood. I've seen some pretty ones. Or, the cool tile I put in my bathroom, has a bit of a texture to it, very high tech. I'd also not do shale again. It is very hard to keep clean and trust me, I'm not a clean freak by any stretch of the imagination.

Did I tell you I love the tile in my bathroom

All I thought of was shoots. I was hoping to get some free shoots for cooking lol....

I drove by a bamboo farm in Savannah one time and all I remember is that they looked neat and wondered if they'd make good plants in lieu of hedges or other plant life around the lot...

73. There are some miniature varieties that are beautiful

A friend had regular bambo in his yard and it grew out of control. He ended up paneling his basement with foot-square boards with lengths of bamboo attached to them. It turned out very nicely.

My friend had served with the Marines as a Corpsman in Vietnam, so he was kinda nuts anyway--but very creative.

86. Consider ornamental grass

We use something called oriental feather grass as a screen between our house and the road. In the spring, it quickly grows into a dense hedge and it puts out tall seed stalks in the fall. In November, we cut it down with hedge clippers and dump it on the compost pile. Next spring, it grows up again. It does seed itself into the lawn, but is easily kept in line with a lawn mower.

Best of all, we started the whole hedge from about $5.00 worth of seed.

my mom's generation did cement floors and stained them. That was 50-60 years ago. They are still beautiful. I'd also do cement counter tops. Of course, I'd have to divorce my husband to do it...easy come, easy go (kidding, we'd done our whole house and had to compromise on everything. Neither of us got what we wanted and it is all kinda blah as a result)

We haven't gotten to the bargaining/compromising stage yet - still all in the wishful thinking stage...I imagine I will save all my credits for gadgets and let her have all the decorating wants.

87. Our bamboo is great

we really love it. It does scratch, so you have to be careful when moving furniture around. We don't have young kids or dogs either (only grownups and cats in the house), so it doesn't get the wear and tear a lot of floors get. We did all of the non-wet areas of the house in it, and tile in the bathrooms and kitchen. Really happy with it, easy to maintain, wasn't too difficult to put in, cheap and sustainable. Wins all around. Having no carpet in your house makes you realize how dirty carpet gets!

Another beer can story--my brother and his wife had a painting party at their house one year, and my friend and I were painting some built-in bookshelves that were on either side of the fireplace (a typical late 70s/early 80s sort of fireplace). The shelves went all the way to the ceiling so we painted an empty beer can the same color as the back wall of the shelves and put it at the back of the top shelf. It was there for something like 3 years before they noticed it. Pretty funny to get a phone call from my brother asking "did you put that beer can there?".

89. Another thing that lets you know

how dirty carpets get is renting a steam cleaner. Bleah. And yeah, that's exactly why we are looking at wood. We'll probably get a couple good sized area rugs just for coziness though - I already have a pretty cool Persian rug my brother brought back from the middle east years ago but we've never had a good place to put it...

Been there and done that. One day we were doing a parking lot for the local hospital and this older gentleman drove about 50 feet across our freshly placed concrete and then when the boss hollered at him to get his blankity blank ass and car of there he got in the boss's face. I still don't know if the man ever knew what he did. Luckily for us the concrete was just freshly lain so we were able to remove the car tracks. When the sun is just right and if the concrete is wet you can still see the indention of where he drove.

68. more than likely just cut out the part that was damaged and replace only it

Most tow truck drivers wouldn't make any more of a mess than what was already there. If they were worth their salt that is
concrete is pretty forgiving up to a point then from then on its a lost cause. At any rate someone had to work their asses off more than they already were going to have to that day.

I mostly only know that there's a short window between mixing and pouring (as I recall, 45 minutes.) I don't know if the newer formulas take longer to begin setting up, though.

57. Obvious:

If it feels like mud, it's MEANT to be walked (Or waddled) on.

65. After they put in a new walk in my empty neighboring house's yard,

the concrete guys left. I wasn't outside. Later that evening, I went outside and noticed that another neighbor's 4-year-old boy had walked the length of the new walkway just before the concrete set. A neat row of very shallow tennis shoe tracks were left, and it was too late for me to get a trowel out and fix it. The concrete had set up fully.

Those tracks are still there. The person who bought the house just shrugged and thought they were cute. I think so too, and would have left them if it had been my walk, too.

Kids and wet concrete have a strange attraction for each other, somehow.

66. That might just piss me off too, except for one thing...

 

On the 20th anniversary MLK march on DC in 1983, we walked 10 miles down Rt. 1 to get there. On a corner near DC we found a sidewalk block that someone had "ducked" with "Jesus shit; God shit". (We found the semicolon to be significant, but then again we were stoned).

The only thing that bested it was the spray paint on a lock-down door that said "RECTAL HORROR". I don't even want to know what inspired someone to write that.

The walk down wasn't bad. The walk back was terrible. Ten miles is a LONG way to walk. Twenty is double that and much worse. I think I slept for three or four days after that trip.

70. Wait, I think that duck is spelling something.

Capital A, then the next letter is an F... Looks like he only has room for another three letters after that. Hmmm... Any guesses what this duck is spelling out?
