May was the target but the deck looked horrible with deteriorating wood and old finish that was peeling and looking like an F-4 Phantom had flown by and dumped a load of napalm.

I tried to strip the deck and I did replace some rotting planks but at the age of 69 I was pissing into the wind as a solo.

I did what I could and then prepped the deck with scrapings, some sanding, the middle finger and 4-letter words before laying down Rustoleum 10X to get by the summer of 2017.

Hey, it's still spring. All that's left to do is to hang the bug netting, hook up the lights and start drinking heavily out back with teenage girls from south of the border after the wife takes off for Ireland in a couple of days.

Maybe not. During the warm summer months it's nice to have shade on the deck and a roof over the deck for the cats that spend time here.
