May I suggest to Maria Cowell, to go back to her gentle picnics in the park, and leave the remodeling to someone qualified to do the job. Her winning formula was, to say the least, "tacky, tacky."
Maria you can't have your cake and eat it too! Those "little old men in the smocks at the hardware store" are getting fewer and farther between. I can't believe you took advantage of them and then bragged about it. They are not here as a public service. They need to eat like you and me, and have probably never seen Hawaii or Baja.
Next time you are at the discount home center and can't get any service, please remember, you get what you pay for.
