“Lionel Hampton, the one I know, isn't a famous jazz musician. He's a house painter in Wilmington, Delaware. He begins by visiting your house. He discusses with you what you want done and then tells you what it will cost. Some people want to buy their own paint. After you settle on a price, work begins.

“My house needed lots of work. It was built in 1909 with at least two modifications since then. It needed exterior paint when we moved in. Eight years later, Lionel painted it, one side at a time. Much of his work was preparing the surface. On our house, Lionel had to scrape almost everything, patch rotten wood, and resurface cracked plaster.
