March 2, 2016 - Jacksonville, FL

Again, we were up early because Tony, the handyman, was coming back to do more work at the house. This time another handyman named Jonny came by to aid Tony with the French door in the workshop. 

New French Door for the Workshop
Old French Door removed
Tony and Jonny started tearing down the old French door and jambs. We were surprised to see how badly rotten the lower parts of the jambs and sills were. It was due to the rain that got into them. Also, a portion of the tiled floor had to be replaced. We had floor tiles left and there were enough to replace the damaged ones. 

Our friends, Bon and Marilyn, wanted to get together one more time because Edith was sick during last weekend's camping trip and did not get to socialize much. We agreed to meet at Metro Diner for breakfast. Each of us had an hearty breakfast meal and our chats were always enjoyable.  All good things must come to an end, not quite end, but we won't see them until late fall or early winter. We bed them farewell.

The new French door and jambs were already in place when we got back from Metro Diner. Also, a small part of the floor was sawed off and new ply wood was already laid. When we came by the workshop Tony and Jonny started putting in the new French door. They discovered that the height for the new one is 2" shorter than the old one. They had to modify the top part to cover the exposed area. 

Erwin and His daughter, Teena, texted each other to make arrangements for us to meet with her and the family for supper at Chick-Fil-A on Beach Blvd. we wanted to spend time with Teena, Annabelle, Jonah and Isaac before we leave for the Rockies and Pacific Northwest this Friday. 

Jonny had already left for the day and Tony started working on the chimney. He was still working when we let him know that we were on way to Chick-Fil-A. 

We had a lovely mealtime with Teena and the family. It was hard to say so long. Annabelle will be 10 soon and Jonah will be 9 in the fall. By the time we get back from the trip they will be a bit taller.
