Yesterday was demo day. I was so happy to see everything some together! These fine young men tore everything down in 6 hours! It had taken a regular crew 3 day's.
It was so nice to see these young men come out and support the veterans. I don't think they all volunteered, but they all had a good time.
I kept them wired on Monster and I fed them, so what more could they ask for.
Amber and Nikki volunteered to come out and help and they both did an awesome job. Amber was on camera duty and Nikki .....well she got shoved out of her job.
Nikki was in there sweeping and the marines would always take her broom from her. Then Nikki got a tile scrapper and the marines took that from her. I found out later in the day that one of the marines who was in charge told told the other marines that if they saw Nikki working that they would get in trouble.
We had one older gentlemen show and no one knew who he was. this gentlemen showed up with his tools and just started working. So I went up and introduced myself. It turns out that someone down at base sent him the e mail about what we were doing and he wanted to come out and help, since he was a retired marine.
Today I am still sore and I have a ton of house work to get done. I was lazy all weekend and gone yesterday, so everything has piled up for 4 days now.
I have managed to get our entry way, the living room, and one bathroom cleaned. The laundry is started, and there is still a ton of other stuff to do.
Today I am sending most of my calls to voice mail. I just have so much that I need to get done. I told Rusty that I would actually cook dinner for him, since he has not had a home cooked meal since last Wednesday.
I need to get busy and I am still sore from yesterday. Here is the link to photobucket account that I set up for demo day. So if you would like to see Americas finest at work go check it out.
