and going and going and going. You may recall my nemesis, which has been staring me down for a while now. I am spending some time here and there scraping paint off. It’s coming along! But I have discovered I need to use the pneumatic scaler — which works great but is SO loud you can only use it for short bursts. Tuesday night I hit it with some Zip Strip and in true I-will-never-learn-my-lesson fashion, ended up with a nasty nosebleed yesterday. Zip Strip makes me ill– that stuff is TOXIC. So no more Zip Strip. And I will keep working on this beauty till it shines!
