Why My Neck Hurts

We're moving the groove west and going to Marathon for Thanksgiving tomorrow, but I wanted to post a few pictures of the job that is to blame for my neck "condition." This is why I can't turn my head to the right, and why, apparently, my arm falls asleep several times a day. I suppose I wasn't exactly "in shape" when I agreed to climb scaffolding two stories in the air and paint a ceiling off and on for two weeks.

Pretty wild, huh? The ceiling is actually above the second floor, but the only way to get to it was to climb from the first floor on scaffolding. The client originally wanted to differentiate each section of the octagonal design of the ceiling with black pinstriping, which I'm quite sure would have killed me.

Here's a photo of the ceiling above the entry. It also added to my neck and shoulder situation.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. My neck needs a vacation.
