Had to whack the coffee pot a couple times to get her going this AM. Me thinks it misses Freddy & Marty--I know I certainly do Anyhooo, it's ready, it's strong & it'll get ya going for whatever's on the schedule for today. We've got our annual MAVAC ( Marathon Area Volunteer Ambulance Corps) picnic today. Big doin's for this old guy. Gives me a chance to work more on my social skills Have a good week-end all.
Thanks for making the coffee freetown fred. It does need some work. The real Fred, aka Freddy gave me his supper secret Aroostook County coffee recipe and I hope he won’t mind if I share it with you so that you have it next time he takes off.
Another week almost in the books and I lived to tell about it, but now nobody wants to hear about it. Well, you ain’t missing anything. A meeting this morning and same old same old for the rest of the day, if it doesn’t rain we may cook supper over the fire later tonight and crack open a couple of beers. Comedy and stupidity are sure to ensue so keep your eyes on YouTube for my upcoming snuff film titled “Hey, Watch This”
Imagine, one more week until Labor Day weekend and the official unofficial end of summer. All the little rug rats will be going back to school and campers give way to yellow school busses on the road. Y’all know what that means, cold weather is soon to follow and we can all fire up those coal stoves. Anthracite burns with so little visible smoke that I plan to incorporate about 10% ground tires to my coal this year to at least let the neighbors know that my furnace is working. Details and pictures are soon to follow.
Go and have a good weekend. If not for me, at least do it “for the children”
Morning gang. I got a $12 coffee pot from family dollar after the $80 Cuisinart crapped out a couple weeks ago! I think they have a chip embedded that one week after the warrantee expires, so does the machine! Anyways the cheapo makes just as good a cup, you just have to remember to turn it off after DAMHIK .
Today I'm in the shop building a couple of end tables out of some old barn and deck boards I salvaged out of the burn pile. My second floor deck will live on in a reincarnated state. Also have a bunch of old solid wood doors that have the inset panels. I was thinking I might whip up a sort of coathanger foyer type something bench out of a couple of the doors. Another quirky, but useful way to recycle old stuff around here. It's an awesome day and looks like an awesome summer week to come. Abouty 80 today with low, yep i said it, low humidity! Loving it! Here's a pix I grabbed the other day after supper that exemplifies the weather we're having up here! Have a great weekend.
No freddy back yet? I read about his quick trip home.....then off to the wilderness again. You don't suppose he has an 'IN' on the location of the illusive SASQUATCH do you? I'll bet he squirrels away a few bags of coal each trip for those chilly' Maine Wilderness Nights'. He's earned a few days off, that's for sure! Lots of folks getting ready to take the coal orders now. Plenty of supply, so relax guys, it is in the que.
Ahhh once again the beautiful smell of burnt coffee comin from the Bun burner. Hope the Picnic goes well for you fred! Our county fair starts up here this coming week. Once again I'll be throwin on the DCNR's smokie suit and loosen about 30 lbs. Have a great weekend fella's.
