On Halloween, some brave (and perhaps tortured) souls were transported to another dimension. A dimension where a house had unpainted interior walls. This house, being built by Habitat for Humanity on North Cherry Street, needed interior primer. Wanda Brown, Barry Davis, James Harper, Tim Mitchell, Chelcie Rowell, Bill Kane and Craig Fansler spent the day priming the interior of this house.
It was fun. People who don’t normally work together visited and found out about each other….we talked shop, sports and beer. Marvelous conversations abounded while we rolled and cut in white primer on sheetrock surfaces inside this new home.
I believe we went through three 5 gallon containers of primer. Some of it was used legitimately…for priming the walls of the house. Much of the primer need up on us from head to toe.
When you are doing something for someone else, it feels good. When you are doing it with people you like, all the better. The universe was in perfect alignment and we managed to sing a few Johnny Cash songs as well.
