The question about paint for a tractor recalled my memories of working in a paint store.

Many years ago, back when the antiquing of furniture was popular, I worked in a PPG paint store, and in time, I became known as sort of an expert on antiquing, especially without buying those kits that were so popular at the time.

One day a lady came in and I explained as thoroughly as possible the steps necessary to a good finish. She said she was working a project with her neighbor, each having a project at hand. She cheerfully bought everything I had suggested, paid, and left.

Two days later, she came in with her neighbor, both bubbling over with glee, and both clad in old clothes and paint-stained smocks.

With her neighbor in tow, she blurted out, "You can see what she's been up to!"


Her neighbor was very obviously pregnant.

P.S. And I kept my composure.

Hi,

You're a better man than I am, Bob. I'd have been splitting a side... ;)

Speaking of paint have you checked the prices on quality paints now that they have to have low volatility?

Paint is expensive, but the performance is better, and it's still the cheapest way to redecorate.
