Don't tell your DW, Johnnie. I'm sure the mosaic is absolutely, positively heron-like in person.

I would take a second look at the pictures, but I can't. In fact, I think I've now been forever blinded to an objective view of any bathroom remodeling pictures by unhealthy visualizations of gymnastic shower entry techniques.

I hope I don't end up in therapy. There's no treatment possible if I start having dreams about a man and his trombone, Don Quixote and a glass shower enclosure.

Love the walk-in shower and the colors you chose for the tile, Johnnie! I have a never-used soaking tub in my master bath. It's sole purpose seems to be to collect dead flies, dust and hair. Fortunately the builder installed a separate walk-in shower fitted with a nice shower head and a bench (never sit on the bench but it is great for holding my assortment of shampoos).

My parents had one of those benches. I think it can be very useful to older people. I am starting to try to think about these issues.

Also it is nice when you are dead tired and need a shower. Just sit there and let the warm water beat on your head.

Thanks! We added a corner seat also but DW has it loaded up with bottles of stuff. Why do women need four different shampoos and three or four conditioners. Most of the bottles are half full.

No tub at all. That is correct. Your one remaining tub should be enough unless you have a dog assembly line to wash at your house! Ha! That process would make a funny utube video I am sure.

Don Quiote? Let me be the first to say that y'all should go easy on the "medicine".
