    While slaving at my job this morning, I knew that at my earliest break I would be entertained and delighted. You didn’t disappoint. Paul is a genius on figuring things out. Question: How were you ever going to fit a king sized bed in that space?
    The film is brilliant. Congratulations.

    You would be so much fun to live across the street from. I could just sit in my house drinking tea, settled in for the show, saying, “Look at what those nice Barneses are up to now. A headboard on the roof. Who woulda thunk?”

    And yes, Paul is a mad genius.

    You are the “Lucy” of the blogworld…no one else could ever come up with these hair-brained ideas and then somehow make all of us “Ethels” love watching you (and Paul!!!) make it happen. She (and you) are still my favorites.

    The video was worth waiting for!! Loved it. Can’t wait to see it all put together – especially since it isn’t made for a queen sized mattress, lol!

      *I appreciate that.* Building the ramp/pushing/pulling headboard took maybe about an hour? I would be afraid to calculate the amount of time I spent editing.

    I look positively reasonable and perfectly sane (as long as you’re comparing me to Victorica Elizabeth Barnes) …. okay, there was that time I bought a steel framed box springs that couldn’t be carried upstairs and had to lean around in our guest room for several years until we built a dormer onto our house and handed it thru the now queen size opening. When we move someday, we’re selling the house with a free steel frame box springs.

    Another awesome post that left me in tears….laughing ones! I not only read your blog but now I read CL regularly and look for things that I see “potential ” in. Haven’t been brave enough yet to make that first purchase but if I had a husband like Paul I would jump right in and not worry about such things like how I’m going to get it home etc. Keep up the good work and funny escapades. . . .

    “I am only the finder.” I read that line and ended up with soda coming out my nose! Thank you for all the times you’ve made me laugh! Now I get to show it to my Paul when he gets home, because it’s always more fun to laugh together. Enjoy your bed….looking forward to seeing how the mattress will be made to fit.

    That was the cutest video and too ingenious! Well done too you both (I say getting up there on the roof and providing dance moves to boot is plenty of help 🙂

    Hey VEB-apropos of nothing I was googling your name just to see how famous or( infamous) you had become and ironically the first reference that was available was arrest record. This just cracked me up- or maybe I’m just a wee bit cracked me-self. By the way you are famous your name brings up oodles of references.

        Zounds! Your next Video -two tall gorgeous characters -suitably garbed all in black…..berets set at a jaunty angle accompanied by a ? is that a cat? penetrate the locations of the worlds great treasures and abscond with them all! I don’t see any holes in this plan at all. It should definitely involve homemade ramps and a safety harness for you.

    If the house across the street from yours ever goes on the market, please drop me a line. I would contemplate buying it just so I could have a ring side seat to your adventures. Heck, with advanced notice of any of your upcoming escapades, I could sell tickets and we could split the profits. Its a thought, just saying…..

    The math teacher in me was delighted to see that the diagonal of the rectangular window was the perfect size to accommodate the kingdom headboard. Three cheers for the hypotenuse!

    I love your husband’s ingenuity (and of course, your unrelenting awesomeness). 🙂

    Next time my husband tells me something can’t be done, I’m gonna show him this video and say “Well this guy figured this out- I’m sure you can come up with something this genius too!”

    I’m sure I’ll work like a charm. 😉 Thanks in advance.
