About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Rental property repairs

My brother R intsalling basement window at my Franklin St. house. 
I own a rental poperty on Franklin St. in Watertown, NY.  It has two apartments, one up, and ne down. When I first bought it I went to work and re-did the ineterior. I updated the electricity and plumbing, put in new kitchens and other odds and ends. About two years ago I put a new roof on the house. Other than that I have nit addressed the exterior. Mostly it needs painting and some minor exterior repars. So for the past two days I have been replacing the lattice work around the front porch and my brother R replaced one of the basement windows. As you can see from the photos the building needs to be painted. I plan to get that done in the next week or so. The window cost $60.00 and I paid him a hundred for the installation.

New lattice work on the front porch of the Franklin St. house. Next I have to fix up the railing and paint the house.
The lower apartment has been vacant since June. I may have trouble renting it because a large number of new rental units have come on the market in Watertown.
