I got up early and added some flooring then I weighted and waited.

And weighted and waited.

Then something broke loose and I was able to make a lot of good progress very quickly.

I was simply laying floor and making cuts. The tools were just appearing in my hands. The glue slops were being cleaned. Weights were being distributed. Boards were being pre-inspected and sorted depending on the damage if any. New boards were coming in and being mixed in with the other boards.

The “something” that broke loose was a beautiful young daughter named Victoria. Something is different about her lately. It’s called maturity. Yes she is only 12, but she never complained once and she was “Victoria on the Spot”. She more than doubled my productivity. I was able to move quickly and focus on doing the job right. She is my princess and she deserves a little time with the old man. I think she wants to see the Lone Ranger. She’s got it!

How cool is that!
Way to go Victoria on the Spot.
My son is also 12 and sometimes he will jump right in and hand you just what you need, like he almost read my mind.
