...two sides...

Hello. It is sunny and beautiful in Chester County, PA this morning. Yesterday my client's three young boys took great care in playing with my three boys. They have a creek running through their back yard and all 6 came back tired, wet and happy. I am helping them to turn their basement into a family/media room and they have enough space to do pretty much whatever they want. For years they looked at the basement as nothing more than a storage area but can now see the practicality in refashioning it into usable living space. On this day in 2008, by winning the Men's 4x100 medley relay, Michael Phelps became the first Olympian to win eight gold medals in the same Olympics. Last week he was pulled over for driving without current information after apparently downing a beer an hour. Some try to paint a 'two sided' portrait of this Olympic winner as a beer swilling, irresponsible man. A beer an hour in his body size doesn't raise any red flags over here! Keep swimming and forging ahead. There may be someone out there to try and take you down. Staying on topic, on this day in 1998, U.S. President Bill Clinton admitted in a taped testimony that he had an "improper physical relationship" with White House intern Monica Lewinski. Perhaps you have already heard about this. On the same day he admitted before the nation that he "misled people" about his relationship. He also did some good things for our country but will probably be best known for the uhm, well, that. Back to the basement. I want the floorcovering, a faux ash toned wood, to continue through every area so as not to break up the flow of the plan. The laundry room will be open to the rest of the rooms and the client has an old three paneled folding screen. I will construct inserts for each panel making them two sided so that it looks custom from every angle. The screen will also provide some privacy without creating a block. Did you hear that Bill! Two sides y'all. On this day in 1970 a wholesome sibling duo had the top song in the nation as "Close To You" remained #1 and was considered the summer song of that year. Projecting home and hearth values, the importance of family and a drug/alcohol free existance in the chaos of Viet Nam, Watergate and Kent State, Karen and Richard certainly had two sides to their public and personal lives. Have a great day, choose to be on the right side and, like many of us, try to keep the secret side...secret. "Bamboo Rectangle Serving Trays'.
