I was at an after-work gathering of business people recently, and a person I don’t recall ever meeting stopped me when she noticed my last name. She asked if I was “Ray’s son”. As you know, my dad has been gone for a number of years now and it feels great when somebody mentions him to me. She said that she and her husband bought their first house in the Reservoir Triangle. She attributed their success with improving and maintaining their house to my Dad. I guess he provided them a lot of advice over the years.
My dad never threw anything out and fixed just about everything himself. So, when he was giving a customer advice, it was from personal experience in doing the job.
Well, that knowledge has been passed down a couple of more generations, so you’ll still get the same sort of personal advice at Durfee’s.
I’m still working on my porch in-between rainstorms. I have decided to go crazy and try to avoid this porch from needing work in the future. The boards around the edges were rotted away because they were installed with their endgrain showing. I decided to re-border the whole edge with a wide oak board, and leave the pine in the middle. This way the oak will see most of the rain water, which will hopefully stand-up better. I used my router and bits I had from other jobs to tongue-and-groove everything together, and it turned out great! My daughter then sealed the whole thing with semi-transparent wood stain I got from Durfee’s when it was completed.
I find that I only end up reporting on about half of what I get from Durfee’s because I go from memory. My memory isn’t the greatest, but I find that I can depend on computers. I took a look at all my receipts on the store account, so I could give you all a real list:
