That would not be a problem, I am getting away with inviting all of the neighborhood ladies to come see the towers bedroom project. ;~) There is an elderly lady 4 houses down that brags about me inviting her to come to see "his" bedroom. It is a lot of fun seeing their faces when I invite them to the bedroom. ;~)

Did you see that step stool??? LOL. Symmetry was a big factor, those will probably be back up storage and or stuff that might be seasonal.

While I made a 2-step stepstool to reach up to otherwise inaccessible areas, it lives in the mudroom on the "park side" of our house. In the kitchen on the street side we have a kickstep roll-about stepstool that we special-ordered through Goodman's Hardware before it sadly closed (pancreatic cancer of owner).
To me, well worth the investment - lightweight, sturdy and you can kick it around when you have your hands full, as when putting away groceries.

You're one of the few men in the country whose wife will let a set of steps or ladder get anywhere near their PROTECTED AREA, the kitchen. You should feel grateful. <titter>

I keep a 2-step folder in the utility room next to the kitchen since I use it very, very seldom.

I hear tell that Baldy had his feet bound as a child. He missed going to Geisha school by || that much!

Everyone shares the household chores (like laundry) around here. As my shop is just off the laundry room, it's an easy thing for me to handle.
The kids do their own.

I think you'd enjoy my chili better than most of her food. No complaints, just a remark.

The first time my wife made chili for me I thought it was hot dog relish. She is from Tonawanda, NY.

It's likely sacrilegious, but I got a recipe for vegetarian chili, originally aimed at participants in a summercamp - definitely not ritzy. I did change the original 3 tbsp of cayenne pepper to 3 tsp when I tasted it. I also added browned sweet italian sausage or spiced ground meat. I did like the garbanzo beans, so they stayed. My daughter and her family come running when I say I have a new batch ... If anyone is interested, I can copy the recipe ...
