Re: Thanks!

Wow,  interesting color choice. Although, living in the deep south, lots of
people paint their doors and trim "haint blue" as in, scare away the haints,
evil spirits, whatever. lots of voo doo here. I've thought of painting my
back door blue, but for completely different reasons. I just like the color.
