Frost Park Chalk Challenge Central

I need a bath!!

Hello Tacoma, 

It's been hot this weekend, and someone fried an egg on my sidewalk but left it there to fester.

I heard some folks walking by today say that the weather is supposed to hold until the weekend with rain expected on Monday, so would a few of you be willing to come out this week and give my sidewalk and walls a scrubbing so you all can cover them with chalk again this week?

I'd appreciate it. I know that Joel guy who work in Seattle often drives by around 5:15 or so. How about some of the others, maybe that one guy with a key to the spigot, the one with the face that's slick as an onion? You know the one right? Or how about that other guy with the worn down brush, he always does an awesome job of getting the Prang off. Man that stuff leaves a mark.

So? Who's stepping up this week?

The park wash up is an art form and adventure in itself!

...and there is no ban on glitter.

I will try to get out of work in time for tomorrow.

Sadly this stubble-faced individual can't make it either evening due to work and show conflicts. I should, however, make it next week without a problem.

Anyone plan on scrubbing the walls this week, or can one of the extra Scout keys make its way to FP so I can fetch some water?

Dave can you call me tomorrow 377-7185 and remind me - I have to go to Bellevue at 1 pm but I should be back in time to give you your own key.

I'd help but I'm hella busy and I haven't cleaned my house for almost 3 weeks - gross - and I'm working on three large commissioned paintings for a wellness center in Gig Harbor and oh yeah getting ready for that wedding thing - if lightning doesn't strike me dead first!

Three large commissioned paintings – NICE! I think that thesis on Tacoma artists missed input from a large segment of Tacoma artists quietly putting out work, who would have been worth the legwork required to seek out. You know that little wedding-thing seems to have been sliding by a little too far under the radar… though I truly wish the lucky couple much happiness. I brought in a bucket of water for the big wall (I got tired of seeing my stuff) but I will call.

@Dave - I can come help out after 4PM. When would you like to scrub?

by Joel 413 on 6/11/2009 @ 10:28am
Or before 3PM..

by Dave_L on 6/11/2009 @ 10:35am
I probably won't be free until at least 6pm. I think we could slide by this week if need be since I took care of the big wall and the lawn sprinklers washed much of the sidewalk.

by Joel 413 on 6/11/2009 @ 10:52am
Oh did you already do the wall? Cool!

And here I brought brush and bucket with me to work today. Thanks tho Dave! I'll have it handy for next week ('cause now I'm going to get my scooter at lunch since I don't have to worry about carting around a brush and bucket).

Nice work at Frost Park Dave.

It would be nice if the city would put some water in the fountain to make the washings easier and for your boat flotillas.

by Dave_L on 6/11/2009 @ 3:14pm
...or if we looked into accessing a water spigot, if one's there. I keep forgetting to search for it. If there was one, we could bring a hose or that pressure washer I got last year with Dawn's tip.
I didn't clean it that well last night; I just brought one bucket of water down. But it should be good enough for tomorrow.

Thanks for the acknowledgement regarding my art.

By the way my betrothed is the person that I separated from for a year - so we have actually been together for nearly six years and I have matured regarding my fear of commitment and marriage.
