Remediation, Habitation, Confrontation


Hello

Today we are going to Muse about Remediation, Habitation, Confrontation.  If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

Remediation, Habitation, Confrontation

Remediation

It is the holidays!  What better time to do remediation?!

Yes, we discovered mold in the kitchen.  It now looks like a war zone.  Or, so I am told.  You cannot see it because the work area is sealed off.

The work men enter through a zippered opening.  And the house is pretty much in disarray.

This started last Wednesday.  Bummer.

As I write this, the inspector is here checking the site.  It looks like all is well.  No sign of mold.  So we can move on to the rebuild.  The cabinets , sink, dishwasher etc have been taken out and need to be reinstalled or in the case of the cabinets, rebuilt.  This will likely go on another week.

We had to move out last Wednesday taking Teddy with us.

Habitation

Fortunately, close by in the historic Grandview Heights Neighborhood, there is Casa GrandeView.  This is a collection of fourteen properties with eighteen units.  It has everything from one room suites to two storey four bedroom homes, properties that date back as far as the 1920’s.

We stayed in a two bedroom bungalow, part of a five unit property.

The neighborhood consists mostly of small homes.  Most are well kept and there is an obvious seasonal spirit.

Confrontation

Good weather for a tournament

Good weather for a tournament

While this was going on Jeanette and I played as a team in a Doubles Six Wicket American Rules Croquet Tournament held at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.  This was a singular experience.

Never have I played so badly.  We lost every match.  Or, as I said, “We came in second”.  I suppose the combination of stress, disruption, and not feeling well took its toll.  By the third day we were out of the contest and we were able to relax as spectators.

CHAMPIONSHIP FLIGHT:  Danny Huneycutt and Bob Chilton
FIRST FLIGHT:                       Missy Chilton and Diane Sadowski
SECOND FLIGHT:                  Bill Sadowski and Gerry Kagan

Congratulations all.

Now it is time to gear up for the Holidays.
