The entertaining part of doing the staining was trying to explain to Katie that she couldn't help, because I really didn't want her covered with Golden Oak Minwax stain. And that was what was most likely to happen if she did help. *sigh*
Having spent all this time in the back yard, we grilled steaks tonight. I've become very fond of the $3.50 / pound top sirloin at Sam's Club. I don't think I can buy chuck roast for that price at Jewel.
