Morning eveeybody. Rain and wind up here on the Maine coast. Looking like it's the forcast for the mext 4-5 days or so. Not enough for me to light the new Glenwood though. The Jotul, is on and if need be I'll put some wood to the cookstove. I want to light the Glenwood MO116 once this season. And that ain't yet.
Good on Ya Freddie for taking in the family member. In the older days nearly everyone lived at home with the fam till they died. I have my 82 yr old Mum with me and she loves it. The old gal is still doing pretty well to although she uses a cane and her balance isn't all that great. This is a big house and I'm glad to have her. No nurcing home for her if I can possibly help it. Crap weather for camp though. Light up that stove and break out the cribbage board!
Rob, I'm with you on the damp and cold. The past month or more, it's been the best part of the summer. No bugs to speak of, excellent weather, two new cats (1 1/2yr old Mommy and her 5 month old lad) making themselves to home here and entertaining old Mum. They are quite a hoot.
I really get miffed at the gas prices!
Last time gas was $4 a gallon around here was 2008. At that time the price per barrel was $140. Now, close to $4 again and the ppb is $100? Can anyone say Price gouging, or am I missing something?
Smitty, again excellent job on the roof. Your wifes scaring the heck out me with that through the pocket training though!
Just don't seem right when I think about it so close to the family jewels
For me that is.
Welp, another cuppa french roast and I'm up on the second floor painting a little hallway between the bath and my bedroom. For such a small space it's quite a PIA what with pipes and breaker box etc.. runining through it. Kim wants a linen towel closet in there so you all know what I'll be doin this weekend.
