Instead of doing what Betty told me to do (replace a bulb in a light strip where the bulb has two little prongs you have to blindly fit into two little slots, then push just so, then twist just so, all while stretching up to the limit of my reach), I finally just replaced the whole damned light strip with a 3 foot LED fixture. Now she can tell what she put on the stove.

It’s nice you went that extra mile . :)

but I was right when it came to the colour of the letters on the sign. The first thing our friend mentioned about the sign that they could not read some of the words from a distance…. The only letters that stood out were the ones painted in white.

With that sign, that would work better if "Wife" was ALSO painted in white.

But then it would read ..."If Doing Your Wife" LoL I'd rather the friends walk over to the other side of the pool to read it. ... bear in mind English is not the first language of many of our friends LoL... Our Dutch friend would put 2+2 together and make s5 and our Portuguese friend would be totally non-plussed and as for ... God only knows ... sigh. I'll sneal out in the dead of night and paint it myself ;)
