Day 14 of the 'Annie' mural

 Here's Dakota, our vigilant mural painting companion, on this our 14th day! He stays put, unleashed, well mannered and friendly to everyone who comes by! What did we do to deserve such a dog!!      
     Well, a few moments after this picture was taken, the scaffolding lost a wheel and tipped over!! Thankfully we weren't on it, and it fell upright against the wall! It was a little too heavy for Ed and I to right it and replace the wheel..Just then, as we were wondering what to do, a young man, who had stopped earlier to admire our work came walking by again, and with his help, Ed was able to lift the corner up high enough for me to insert the wheel into its place!!  We thanked him, and learned that his day was spent all morning walking from his home to a job interview there in town. Ed offered to give him a lift home and he gratefully accepted...we're hoping he gets the job!  
 Here's my day's progress, a real challenge getting those windows to look right! This in addition to Ed laying on a second layer of white to the two white horses, and the rodeo rider's shirt! So far, we've put a few hundred $ worth of paint on the wall, spilled some of it on the parking lot, and of course we take home quite a bit on our clothes and hands!  It seems the further along we get, the more I see needs to be done, but I'm guessing now, it might be really close to the end in about 12-13 more visits!
          And speaking of visits, thanks for yours!!
