We had a very productive day today. Greg Crow, who is assisting Operation Hogar, led us to the home in West El Paso this morning, and got us started. All of us surveyed the exterior and interior to see what needed to be done, and Pete and Bob took measurements and notes to determine what needed to be purchased.

Irene and Pete went to Home Depot to scout out kitchen appliances, and Greg took Bob to Ace Hardware for drywall and doors, but they didn't have any.
Meanwhile, Gordon, Mary, and Suzanne started working on fixing windows, scraping stucco walls, and painting. Later we all got into a painting frenzy, and painted walls and ceilings in bedrooms, kitchen, and bathroom.
Tomorrow, we'll patch a drywall ceiling, pick up and install kitchen appliances, finish painting the rooms, paint concrete floor slabs, and install new doors.
