The Big Show at Lawndale is a multi artist show where each of many artists show one or two pieces.  Lawndale is a non profit with the mission of helping local emerging artists.  Deep Eddy Vodka is made in Austin, TX and is available plain or flavored.  The cocktails were free.  You may recognize the redhead.

There isn’t much I can say about Louisville, Kentucky. It’s a sleepy town on the Ohio River where the main attraction happens to be Bourbon distilleries.  Rand Paul represents them in the US Senate for whatever that is worth.

I don’t have a building permit yet, but now have an appraisal high enough to get the project permitted.

Demolition is complete.  The place looks like a war zone.  Monday they will spray fungicide.  The house has dried out, and it is odor free.  Getting to this stage cost about $10,000.  I don’t have an estimate of insurance recovery yet, and a building permit is at least 4 weeks away.

The weekend has been difficult.  It’s another two days with no progress.  Air conditioning is running at 70F/21C to dry out the place.  There are three dehumidifiers running as well.  Last night was the first time I went out in the evening since returning from Amsterdam.  I must have PTSD.

Workmen ripped out some Sheetrock and insulation in my home yesterday.  Demolition is less than 50% complete.  This morning a heavy trash truck picked up debris.  Halfway down the block there is a pile of rotting, fly covered garbage.  Most of the flooded homes are vacant now.  There will not be much activity for about a month because the permitting process is difficult.  Many homes will not be repaired.  They will be torn down and replaced with elevated structures.  I am living in a half flooded house.  Once the kitchen is torn out, I might move out.

The adjuster was here yesterday, but I will not receive his findings for a few days.  A contractor who did major work for me in the past has been hired.  Tuesday he will bring out some dehumidifiers, a few days later baseboards will be removed.  Please entertain yourself with these photos.
