Construction on Paragraphs has proceeded to a point where there are some important decisions to be made. John (the architect) and BJ (the contractor) had mentioned that it would be a good plan for me to make a trip to the Island the week of the 4th so we could select a stucco color and the corresponding color for gutters and trim.
I did not relish the idea of heading to SPI over the 4th, and of course we were also to be in the middle of this meandering trip back to Denver. What to do?
I explained to John that there is a restaurant in Denver, Bonefish Grill, which has a sophisticated-looking color scheme and the manager had agreed to give us the details one time when we were having dinner there. So, it seemed like a simple matter, just give the restaurant a call, get the name of the colors and relay this information to John. What could go wrong?
Well, after getting a somewhat lukewarm response from the manager, who seemed to have had a sudden attack of amnesia, I telephoned the corporate headquarters which are located in Florida. While sitting on hold, waiting to be connected to the construction department, I kept looking at my hat, hanging over the seatback in front of me. Finally, I was connected to the Bonefish construction offices and was informed these color schemes were strictly proprietary.
With this bit of news I was faced with the need to become creative, quickly. Suddenly, I was struck by the color of the brim, on my canvas, Grand Lake, hat. This led to a search for a Post Office or UPS store and the loss of one hat, temporarily.
John, confirmed that he received this unique color swatch, yesterday. I hope it will give him enough information to match stucco colors!!
