Lynn and I stopped off at Home Depot to get some flourescent tubes for our kitchen and bathroom. Just enough to replace the burnt-out bulbs, because we expect to replace those fixtures in a year or two.

At the folks' house, you can see the Ikea "BENNO" CD/DVD towers being used for DVD storage. Dad has divided the alphabet into eighths - so additional "A" titles will go on the top row, etc.

Bookcase in Dad's office. Books on the desk. Also newspapers, but they are today's paper.

The dish drain is lifted up at one end by a cutting board made from the countertop material. Until Mom needs it, it's as good a place to keep it as any. When she does need it, she might want to give it a quick once-over first, but for now it serves to make a steeper rake for the dishdrain.

Jocelyn Baden, Lynn Baden. There's a phone on the dresser on Mom's side of the bed.

Kitchen counter, by the time we left. Receipts do not belong sitting on the counter, neither do owner's manuals, warranties, tools, or extension cords -- they all have drawers assigned to them in the kitchen. The material to the right is all "Jay-land" waiting for Jay to come over and deal with them. Lynn Baden standing, Jocelyn Baden seated.

View into the kitchen. Still need that under-sink cabinet door. Note that there's a toaster oven next to the toaster now.
