I know A Perfect Painter In Nanaimo

Due to the fact that we have no more room for ‘stuff’, I gave my husband an Anniversary gift of having the main floor of our house painted. When we first moved into our home, I had 12 different shades of grey that became more blue as time went on, so I picked out a beautiful colour (one only) and then tried to find a painter.

A lot can be learned, some come right away and it looks like you have made a commitment with them, and NO, you never hear from them again, or the quote is so high, it becomes laughable. My daughter said “call my neighbor, he is a professional painter and has been for more than 30 years. I did and I am so glad I did.

Out he came, walked through with me, gave me a quote (which I thought was too small, upped it and we had a deal. He showed up (as he said he would), did his prep work as he went around, three rooms took 3 coats of the new colour and the balance was two. He is clean and never leaves a mess behind.

On the 4th day, when  he would have been finished, he walked around, touched up the things the first painter had not done,  did his final walk through, and left.

I highly recommend him and if you want, I can tell you how to reach him. Our only thing is,  and I guess most people don’t, we fed him lunch, offered him treats once in a while. He is totally professional, honest as they come, and very pleasant to have in your home.

His name in Kelly, and if you wish to contact him, give me a nod. Then call him if you are truly needing a painter, and don’t waste his or your time by not being honest about what you want.

By the way, our home is now brighter, fresher looking and I am thrilled.

Harbour City Optometry ( Costco), Nanaimo

We all need our eyes tested from time to time and more often as we become the “Arctic Blonde” group. Don and Kelly were pushing me to get my eyes tested and Don insisted it be at Costco.

Well,  people don’t wait….make that appointment. they have the very best staff and Gurinder Jassal did the testing on me and, after actually listening to what I was saying, found the problem exactly.

I was so thankful for his care and concern because no one has really ever figured it out before.

We came out and tried looking for new frames….hahaha! I think we drove Julie crazy trying on almost every pair they had…sort of! I kept saying “this one” and Don kept saying no. I asked him why because I liked one pair more than the others. His reply “because I have to look at you”.

We found a pair, sat down with Julie while she worked to get everything exactly right.  I was very impressed. She did not make me feel like I was just another sale. Job well done and thank you one and all.

So……go to Costco for your eye testing and know you are in the very best place for the very best care.
