Holiday Horse Parade, Then Tiling

I’m nearly becoming more of a tiler than a cyclist.  At least it seems that way.  I sort of like tiling, but not enough to want to do it constantly, like for a job.  I like it because it takes a bit of intellect and there is always a small quirkie problem that needs to be addressed.  Plus, you can see your progress easily.

I don’t like it because of the time you end up spending on your knees.  Even with really great knee pads, my knees are mad at me.  I am going to to today off.  12 hours yesterday was enough.

Before tiling, there was a Holiday Horse Parade in downtown Lawrence.  I think this was the 22nd year for it.  That is a pretty long run.  Anyway, it is a really great time.

It wasn’t a great day for a parade, kind of cold and damp, but that didn’t seem to keep people away.  Mass St. was jammed.  I’m not sure how many different horses and wagons they had, but it was just enough.  It lasted about 45 minutes and everyone had a great time.

It is still damp, but it is supposed to be in the mid 40’s, so I’m going to try to do the “winter rule” and get in a little over 2 hours.

These little horses seemed too small to be pulling this big man and wagon.  It is a really nice wagon.

Bromont wasn't all that interested in the horses.  He is more into birds and little small critters.

    Nice tile work, Steve! I’m a contractor and work mostly with wood, but I agree with your tile assessment; it’s satisfying in that you get to see progress. I also agree with the havoc it plays on your knees. I’m about 8 years younger than you, but I tiled a dining room for some friends a few months ago and my knees hated me for a good week. I, too, had some of the best knee pads they offer…still not enough!
