Good morning everyone!
We had a light dusting of snow last night, its been steadily cooling down, from the 40* temps at the beginning of the week, high today forecast
to be about 20* with a low of 9* tonight.. mostly sunny tomorrow, high of 20*..
At least the wind is very light..
my AA boiler is very happy, it's been making dusty powdery ash and clinkers all season so far. The load of uAE coal I'm burning is one of the
best I've every bought. Too bad that mine and breaker is closing.. i have a lot of UAE coal stored, but I'd like to have more,, I might see if
they will make a TT load of pea for me. I don't even know if the mine is still open, I'll have to call.
I had a friend in my Antique car club, the Pierce-Arrow Society send me 2 # of fresh Lobster meat. So I'm having a Lobster feast for a few
friends tomorrow,, Lobster Bisque, and Lobster Fetichini Alfredo.. or something like that..
I sent him a part he needed for his car, and refused to be paid for it.. He needed it and I didn't. and I still have a spare or two..So he decided to
send Lobster meat.. I didn't want live lobster in case I can't get it consumed, I can freeze the cooked meat.
I've done a minor 'fluff up' on the old original bathroom in the 1849 part of the house. The bathroom cabinets and counter top have been untouched since i bought this place in '97. The countertop is a piece of pre-molded KITCHEN countertop/backsplash, so it's 25.5" deep, wihicis 3" too deep for bathroom cabinets.. And the sink was a $5.00 plastic sink from a motor home i think.. A bathroom on the cheap.
So i removed the sonk and countertop and found a counter top memnant at my cabinet shop, they cut it down and cut the hole for my 'new' sink..
The sink and faucet wer given to me, I have a friend who raids the discard piles at Lowes and Home Depot on a regular basis, he picked these up for a song, he refused any payment.. The faucet was a display-only item, it didn't have any copper supply lines soldered in,, so I had to finish building the faucet, but it works and doesn't leak..
The sink is a bit different, but I like it.. and I really like the price.. free! .
The whole job cost $110.00 !
Another bathroom on the cheap'.
I hope it lasts as long as the last one!!
Have a great weekend !!
