Garage Time

My brother came with Dad during his visit - a first for him - and brought a dartboard with him, something which entertained the kids to no end the first night he was here. He taught them "cricket" and I even found a nice online-webpage to easily keep score. It was a truly brilliant move on his part.

I never imagined the unspecified motivation for cleaning out the garage and installing a music station would have turned out so serendipitous as we we spent all weekend out there drinking beer, throwing darts, and playing track after track after track of great tunes - the latter was especially fun for my brother, who took everything to the next level and organized the ENTIRE GARAGE in a matter of hours the next day.

I was flummoxed:

WOW! I have never seen that garage look so good!

What a fun visit. :)

Ain't that the truth. Thinking about painting the wall with the dartboard on it, then hanging a fullsize fabric-covered sheet of plywood on which to center the dartboard.

SPEAKING OF! How many yards do you think it would take to cover a sheet of plywood?

slightly less than 5 1/2 yards.

What color will you paint the wall? Although any color will be an improvement. :)

Thanks! Possibly sports turf green - the same green I was thinking of paitning downstairs when we were going to put the ping-pong table downstairs. GBZ is thinking it should go in the garage instead, and of course sooner rather than later, too.

Oh yeah! I can see that. :)

Spent a lot of time playing ping pong in the garage with my dad. Very cool!
