Jr. Prom - 2008
Wow, who would have thought? I've got a kid going to a Prom already.

Next year he's a Senior and the following year I have to kick his ass out the door.

A Cool New Toy & A Useful Tool
To the left is a picture of our new toy... a Briggs & Stratton 2050 PSI pressure washer. I almost feel like Tim the Tool Man Taylor from Home Improvement... "More Power!"

Anyway, we have a deck. It turned black & green from dirt and mold. Soapy water and a brush wasn't going to cut it so we splurged and bought a pressure washer from (yes that is a real web site).

Awesome tool! Our deck is rather large so we did half on Saturday and the other half on Sunday. After spraying some soap on the deck and letting is sink in for 10 minutes, we went to work. Let me tell you, the crap that came off the deck was gross. The look of the wood after it was cleaned was jaw dropping. And it was so easy!

After I finished the deck today, the wife pointed out that one corner of the house was a little green. A quick shot with the pressure washer and the brick looks as good as new.
I've already got a call from my mother-in-law to do her deck.

Here's a shot of our deck late Saturday afternoon. The left side was pressure washed and is almost dry. The right side is black and green.

Next week we apply a nice water-proofing stain and voila, a nice looking deck.

I'm happily married to my high-school sweetheart and have two sons. I love relaxing down the Jersey Shore. I also enjoy sitting by the pool after dinner, talking to the wife, watching the kids, and smoking a cigar.
