Got an early start this morning and painted all the edges where the trim boards will touch the paint. The thought was that as soon as that dried this afternoon, I could install all the deck wood, then finish the deck painting this evening. Well, the goddam paint decided not to dry today. Frustrating, especially since that meant I had no excuse not to go in the house and do the taxes.

Late this evening the paint seemed almost dry. So I set some of the trim in place for an interim picture:

Everything that appears white in these pictures will be the color of Grey Poupon tomorrow night.
