I have a couple of news feeds on my website. An article came across one entitled, "Why Paint Your Porch Ceiling Blue?" Intrigued, I read it! You can see it here. Read my comment also!
I think he's writing about me! At least in part.
Why? Because a couple of years ago I wrote a blog which I posted here entitled, "Why To Paint Your Porch Ceiling Light Blue." It's also on my website here. His title varies slightly from mine. Well, you can't copy everything!
As you know, my blog was entirely tongue in cheek! It was a joke, making fun of a circumstance I ran across at a home inspection. I even included a thermal image of a "ghost" I ran across on the roof there, because the house had a white front porch ceiling. The horror!
And look at him! You can almost see into his cold, cold eyes and heart!
After making a number of undocumented, and incorrect, statements presented as facts, he says this:
"Others in states such as Virginia believe that the blue paint will ward off evil spirits. I read about one home inspector down there who will advise his clients during their home inspection to paint their ceiling blue so as to rid the home of any evil spirits."
HA! I think he's writing about me! He made my day!
Rest assured, there may be FOLKLORE "in states such as Virginia" about blue porch ceilings, but not BELIEFS!
And for sure, THIS HOME INSPECTOR doesn't "advise" his clients to paint their porch ceilings light blue to "rid the home of evil spirits"!! Maybe I should!
I emailed the author privately, but he hasn't gotten back. I'm not sure why.
But I have to say, he sure gave me a good laugh! He probably had a good laugh too, thinking I was serious! If he actually laughs. Do you think he laughs? They do laugh up there, right?
