One strong memory from my childhood is when my two brothers -- and my cousin Todd who would spend a few weeks with us each year -- painted the family house. The earliest memory I have is the house being light blue, and then my parents decided to paint it light green. In fact, the garage is still painted that color, only with a dark green door. I was just a little kid at the time so I wasn't allowed to go up the ladders, but I remember my brothers (and cousin) climbing way the fuck up into those peaks, shimmying up the ladder one slow cautious step at a time, with a paint brush in one hand and a bucket of paint in the other. And they were what, maybe 15 years old? Try that shit these days and you'll have DSS banging down your door.
Anyway, I had mi casa painted this weekend. It was the original peach flavored paint from when the house was built in 2000 so it was tired as fuck, and had arch-shaped hard water stains from where the sprinklers blasted the side of the house. A friend of a friend paints houses on the side so in the tail end of last week we picked colors, taped shit off, and gots to rolling. Finished up Monday and I don't think it looks half bad; we stuck to neutral colors so if we do put it on the market, it'll appeal to the most buyers. My neighbor gave me some terrific advice, in that if you stick to the colors on the same sample card, you can't go wrong. And it's amazing how differently the color swatches look when viewed inside with artificial light, versus outside in the sun. So now the bulk of the house is wearing two coats of Nearly Brown with Sand Dollar for the trim, and I think we're going to do a few small accent pieces in Kaffee to see if that works.
So yeah, that and drilling new tapcons into my fucking pool cage is how I spent my weekend. I know, fucking crazy, right? I guess this is what the inevitable decay towards death feels like. At least I still have my cane.
Jerome Lester Horwitz, better known by his stage name Curly Howard, was best known member of the American farce comedy team the Three Stooges, which also featured his older brothers Moe and Shemp Howard and actor Larry Fine. Curly was forced to leave the Three Stooges act in 1946 when a massive stroke ended his showbusiness career. One year later, partially recovered and with his hair regrown, Curly made a brief cameo appearance as a train passenger barking in his sleep in the third film after brother Shemp's return, Hold That Lion! (1947). It was the only film that featured Larry Fine and all three Howard brothers -- Moe, Shemp and Curly -- simultaneously; director White later said he spontaneously staged the bit during Curly's impromptu visit to the soundstage: "It was a spur-of-the-moment idea. Curly was visiting the set; this was sometime after his stroke. Apparently he came in on his own, since I didn't see a nurse with him. He was sitting around, reading a newspaper. As I walked in, the newspaper he had in front of his face came down and he waved hello to me. I thought it would be funny to have him do that bit in the picture and he was happy to do it." He suffered through serious health problems and several more strokes until his death five years later, at age 48.
