Dash Splash

Took a break from painting and worked on my Jeep a little this weekend. I decided to shine up the Dash. Used a littel rubbing compound and it came to life. Really looks nice. The speedometer is not accurate because of the oversized tire so I decided to take the GPS with me to figure this out. (speedometer is 10 miles an hour slow) I was going to remove an old braket off the dash, but decided to use it. I had to do a little welding and fabrication, but now the GPS is mounted. It is neat because it has a compass and shows your speed both at the same time - not to mention a road map when needed. Also did some welding on the spare tire rack which solved a couple of little issues.

Beck's paint

Progress on the Master bathroom is coming along nicely. Becki has been busy painting and I put up some new lights and towel racks. (New towels are coming). May even have an option besides green. Just in case you forgot I added a picture of the old look. Next...tile floors in both bathrooms.

Little things

I can't help myself I have to work on something. Today I changed out the steering stabilizer. It looks good and should make a difference.

Moving on..

Now that we are driving the jeep it is time for one of Becki's projects. We (Becki) has been stripping wall paper in our master bathroom. I don't know how we lived with this hideous paper for two years, but it is coming off. It is time to get rid of the "GOLD" fixtures also.

This is going to make such as difference!

4th of July

This was a great 4th for the Bean's. Alan and Marie came up from Austin and Andy came up from Lubbock (TECH) to celebrate and visit. We all spent some time in Miami. We had a nice steak and visit with Mom and Charles. Late in the evening we went out North of town and enjoyed a perfect evening driving around in the pasture. Had to do some shooting of course and check out
Charles' new barn. Saturday was a fun filled day in Canadian - Parade, sight seeing, Movie, Rodeo, Fireworks and Dance. Canadian is looking great with lots of new businesses and homes. It is amazing how pretty it is once you get to Miami and Canadian! Photo courtesy of Marie Bean

We had a fun time "Tailgating" at the park waiting on the Fireworks and Dance.

Me and my Dog

This evening Gracie and I went on a ride to the creek. She really likes riding in the jeep and enjoyed playing in the water. When we got back I washed the jeep and Gracie. Becki even took the jeep out for a spin.
