Walls all finished and Something To Ponder

Well, the walls are now painted and I pulled the stove back out and experimented with the floor paint. Did 3 coloured squares and it seems to have worked! Now to figure out how to block off each section from the animals as I attempt the rest, a little at a time. The fumes were strong but with the windows open and the ceiling fans on in the hall it got rid of them quite well. I`ll do a bit more today at some point. Pictures will follow when the room`s all done, though that may take awhile yet.
Below is something that I had saved because I liked it so much. the "Battle of Life" drawing is from a Charles Dickens book.....

"First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me."

- Martin Niemoeller, Berlin Lutheran pastor arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Dachau concentration camp in 1938; the Allied forces freed him.
