She found it at Big Horn Quilts. I ordered a couple of yards immediately. I checked the site again today and could not find it again. Perhaps I bought the last of it. It will be perfect.
Our front door has been leaking for about 10 years. We’ve tried all sorts of solutions – new thresholds, more caulking, new weather stripping, new under-door sweeps. Nothing has worked. Several contractors have told us we needed a new door (they recommended steel). I just love our wooden door, which I bought on sale 25 years ago when the house was being built.
Casey started taking the whole frame apart and pulling up the threshold. He was preparing to put on a new under-door sweep when he found a soft spot in the wood. Robert probed the spot and found wood-rot. They pulled out the soft, splintery wood and there was a big hole.
I figured we would have to buy a new steel door. Casey thought perhaps the rotten spot could be cut out and filled in with a patch of new wood. I said, “Why not cut off the whole bottom of the door and replace it with a new board?”
The guys thought that was a good idea. Robert got the wood and dowels for the replacement while Casey cut off the door bottom.

You, Joe the Plumber, say you will to be paying for your business for many years to come and at the same time your profit (income) will be more than $250,000. Your gross income may be 250K, but I doubt that your net income will be this high. Your payments on your business loans are deductible. After all your business deductions -- employee salaries, rent, trucks and gas, machinery, parts and supplies, upkeep, utilities, and other costs of running the business you may have a profit. On the amount above 250K that is pure profit, you will pay 39% instead of 36% in tax.
You might want to tack up the little sign on wall in your shop, Joe.
