This’ll be the day the Mormons show up…

Sure hope you’re happy…

Shook up this can of water sealer yesterday evening, read the instructions and was dismayed to see the “Don’t walk on it for 48 hours” instruction, which would have given me pause back when LB lived here. Fortunately I can cope with the back door’s still-improvised stairs more easily than he could.

But don’t you know, this’ll be the day I get visitors clueless enough to go around the blocked steps and insist on knocking on the front door anyway?

Also should have looked for a smaller can, because it looks like I mistakenly purchased a lifetime’s supply of Thompson’s Waterseal.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Well, you can use it on stuff you might not have considered preserving before . . . like that nifty table.

    And of course, the “permanent” decking you will install whenever.

    And perhaps the steps, if not too late. Never hurts, ya know.

    And the cows. Can’t hurt to make them “waterproof”, can it?

    Actually I did roll some on the table, since it was sitting right there…

    And if the Mormons show up, put them to work. If they want to bend your ear, make them earn it.
    There has to be trenches to dig/back fill, roads that need repaired, post holes dug for that fence to keep the cattle at bay or wood that needs split.

    And in return you can waterproof the soles of their shoes. Whether they want that or not!

    Where I live, similar to where you live but higher and with worse weather extremes (sometimes in one day), no one will use it because it doesn’t last. So you may be re-coating the deck, stairs, table, whatever every few months and use it all up in about 18 months.

    No worries Joel, at the rate Thompson’s needs re-applied it’ll be used up shortly.
    I think pissing on the deck might last longer heh heh

To the stake with the heretic!
