Working on the dolls house toilet

I worked on the room box some more yesterday, but the thing that had my attention the most was the toilet. I at first tried to paint the tank and the toilet seat black however when I applied the paint it would not stay on. I think the coat underneath was gloss or something so for the paint to stay on it has to be sanded down. I did not have no sandpaper so, I added some PVA glue to the paint to see if it would stick, this worked however I had to keep giving it coats. The paint-glue still is not permanent on the toilet and tank because if I pick at it, it will peal off. So I have to be careful. Apart from that I think it turned out looking very good.

In the heat of the night

I’ve finally watched “In the heat of the night” from start to finish. Usually I watch the beginning and something happens why I never get further then around 20 minutes. Anyway “In the heat of the night” released in 1967 stars Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger and Warren Oates.

Detective Virgil Tibbs [Sidney Poitier]is caught up in the racial tension of the US South when he is arrested after the murder of a prominent businessman. Tibbs was simply waiting for his next train at the station in Sparta, Mississippi and the confusion is soon resolved but when local police chief Gillespie [Rod Steiger]¬†learns that Tibbs is the Philadelphia PD’s number one homicide expert, he reluctantly asks for his assistance. The murdered man, Mr. Colbert, had come to Sparta from the North to build a new factory and his wife and business associates immediately point the finger at Endicott, the most powerful man in the county and the one who had the most to lose if a major new employer comes to the area. Tibbs’ life is clearly in danger but he perseveres in a highly charged and racially explosive environment until the killer is found. [Plot from IMDB.com]
