    I was hoping to get through early before Ray and Wanda got here but that just didn’t happen.  I hired them earlier in the month to come and strip the paper off the stairwell and paint it. They got here at 8:15 a.m. I can’t keep myself from jumping up every few minutes and trying to help. My computer sits in the kitchen about 20 feet from the stairs going to the basement.
