Starting tomorrow, I will be gone for 2 weeks to Maine, USA, to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, to help out with some renovation work. Ginnie will stay at home and defend our castle in my absence.....

Maine? in Feb? Well, bring your long underwear and have a ball. It's pretty there in every season.
Picturit: grin... already packed and ready to go, I know I come in on -20C -4F... and there will be snow, later on in the week it will be less cold. Thank you, Bonnie.
Have a good trip Astrid...
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. It will be fun to be on your side of the pond again.
No doubt you'll have fun, and Ginnie will enjoy defending your castle! Safe travels!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth,
Bon voyage et Bonne Saint Valentin !
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Martine.

Men have not cleaned up after their work!
Picturit: They will, Ray. Trust me... and to be honest, the wooden floor and the carpet is in and my son and his family is living there now....
Sometimes I can come up with good ideas, Astrid, can't I. HA! You will have a blast and so will Don and Ruth. Please just stay well.

BTW, this is one outstanding image, especially with your signature!
Picturit: This was a super idea, Ginnie and thank you for thinking this up. I hope that we can do as much as possible.
Thank you according to the signature, this was fun.

Picturit: Thank you so much, Lisl. I already am very happy and waiting on the airport.

That shadow of your name is really clever Astrid. I wish you all the best with your venture. How kind of you to go all that way to help your brother.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. I added the "in-law" to the brother. It is Ginnie's youngest sister and her husband who I am going to help. It will be fun smile.
And YES of course I chose Chad-Air again grin....

You are the right, handy person to help your family-in-law. The shadow of your name is wonderful.
Picturit: Thank you so much, Philine. I hope that I can be of help.
I have a feeling you will be in your element Lady P.
Picturit: Ha, I am, Bill and I get along very well with my brother in law and sister in law.
Mooi gedaan vooral je naam.
En heel veel klusplezier in de USA
Goede vlucht morgen en over 14 dagen.
Picturit: Dank je wel, dat gaat best wel lukken, Marjolein. Een prachtige 'werkvakantie'.....
En tot over twee weken,

Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Dat gaat helemaal goedkomen.
Tot over twee weken.
Would she let you away to come help me too?
Picturit: I think you have to ask Ginnie for that, Care. She thought this up too.

Picturit: I bet you have, Paul.... many requests already smile
Enjoy your time with your brother. Friendship
Picturit: Brother in Law, Ruthie. It is Ginnie's younger sister. I will have a great time.
Have a safe trip each way Astrid, no doubt your castle will be safe in Ginnie's hands.
Picturit: I am confident of that too, Brian. Thank you.
Good luck Astrid, I'll be with you in spirit. LOL!
Picturit: Thank you so much, Marie. I know that pictures will follow in two weeks......
Happy and safe travels, Astrid smile
Picturit: Thank you, Martin. I am now at the airport waiting.

Picturit: This was at my son's house last December, Peter. I helped with renovating there and now I am in between jobs with nothing to do grin..... said the retired person ha.....
Just kidding, I do projects when the come and if they come and maybe I like to ride my bike instead.

On you way back, can you pop in to my place, please? I have a list of jobs for you...
Picturit: I think I will take Ginnie as the supervisor then, Alan, we need at least one responsible adult here. HA?
Bon voyage et couvre toi bien ..
Picturit: Thank you, very much, Claudine.
that sounds like a very nice assignment, Astrid grin i like your signature in this shot.
Picturit: Thank you, Ayush. This was in the house of my son, I helped him out too. We are making progress and might have it finished before I go home again.

Bon bricolage
Picturit: Thank you, JP. Doing good here...
Happy Travels and good luck with the renovations smile
Picturit: Thank you, Cherry. We are making progress and we are having fun. Today a day out to have some fun, like yesterday. Tomorrow sanding......
Werkse en sjouwse zoals op FB
Picturit: Dank je wel, Marjolein. Vandaag nog een dagje uit met de familie en dan morgen schuren en misschien maandag beginnen met schilderen van de trap..... gaat de goede kant op.

Tired of taking pictures and now you go renovating. Great effort that you left for us to stare at while you are living it up, breaking and building.
Picturit: Ha, far from tired of taking pictures, Louis. I try to be outside as much as possible and the family took me two days of touring. We do a mix of hard work and play. Today I will put a layer on the stairs. But before we will make some mist with the sanding. Good thing we can open a door to let the mist/dust out.
The picture was taken at my sons house, they moved in a few weeks ago......
