I can't do the Gevalia but I can do the ham and eggs! Bought a ham steak at the farm store yesterday. Last night at 1am I told myself DO NOT have a fried ham sandwich with mustard! It was delicious and led to dreaming about a snowstorm and heartburn
. No snow here this morning. I fired up the Sears 10xl and plowed the coal ash into the woods yesterday, then rinsed the mud and coal ash off the machine.
I remember seeing Freddy's uncle's house for sale, could have been my chance to make the big change; no guts no glory...
I finished fixing a backyard shed for a lady, big tree had leaned on it in Sandy and partially crushed the roof, knocked the roof rafters off the top plate in back 6", popping the sides off, and pushed the whole shed a foot to the west. It sits on a slope and got knocked off its cinder blocks. I replaced siding, sheathing, busted 2x4's, pulled the roof back in place with a come-along internally, patchen in roof shingles and outside trim, and jacked the shed up with a floor jack to replace the cinder blocks.Struggled to level it and finally set it down intact again. She had a section of vinyl railing knocked off her deck too. I took the top railing that had a busted chunk out of it, made a mold out of plaster and stuck the good end in a coffee can full to get the profile, cut the mold off it, taped it around the break, and poured epoxy in. Got away with it looks acceptable.
Went to the diner with the landlords last night, had to hit the supermarket afterwards, and saw some extremely irate guy screaming at a kid in front of the "Villiage Wireless" phone store. The guy was going ballistic on some kid and quite a few strangers were calling the cops. When we came out of the Kings no cops no irate guy. Must be the full moon.
Coal fire is OUT and it's 28* outside, so I better rekindle it. Dump the ash, put some cardboard in, some scrap wood on top, light it, put in some coal, and get warm again!
