Installing Tile Floor on Sun Porch: Part 2: Sat. Afternoon

Tom did all the placement of the tile and laying of grout and Rob cut all the tile. During the entire afternoon it was all cutting, and laying of tile. The first photo is from 3:41 p.m. and the second picture is from 7:41pm when we called it quits for the day after almost working 12 hours. All of the tiles except for 29 (along the fringes of the room) were installed. We saved those for Sunday... considering the sun was setting, our backs, knees and hands were sore and we were tired.
 - The dogs enjoyed the outdoors most of the day and came in from time to time to get into the air conditioning.

3:41pm 75% of the tiles were cut and laid down.

7:41pm all of the tiles were cut, all except the ones on the edges were adhered.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
