My wife told me I am cut off till I get my stove and or boiler up and running tonight. So I am planning on getting the stove fired up tonight when I get home. Even though I like the cooler mornings. :D

Hey Fred, did the dogs approve of the early Hitzer firing? :D My two dogs sure love that coal-fired heat.

I need to light my boiler soon. Its getting too cold in the house!

40 deg low for tonight forecast. Last week we had a 35 deg morning with light frost.

Probably light it this week or weekend for certain.

I mowed my last hay field for the year tonight 3rd cut. Nice hay. Always a bit disappointed when the haybine cut thru the last field though because that means SNOW, COLD, and INSIDE for the months ahead... Darn.

I love my boiler but I would like to get a nice Hitzer type stove for in the upstairs of the house for this time of year... would be nice. Anyway.

Well, I didn't get to go on the flight....It was scary windy on Saturday & fog along the way, Gary went alone. He said he never would have flown that day other than he had a mission and he didn't want to risk a friend having a lousy, rough, scary ride. He did get Linda's ashes scattered over the island, but visibility was so poor he didn't get any photos. Gary said at some point he will take me for a ride.

That is better then scattering a friend named Freddy all over the island. Have a safer and nicer ride sometime.

With that I agree! But, I think Gary (the pilot) was more concerned about spreading Freddy's lunch all over the cockpit. :)

Its crazy how quickly the leaves have changed in VT this year...last week this time, it was nearly all green, now it's pushing towards peak in the next 7 days or so. Very fast with all these brisk mornings. I'm up at a bit of elevation on the western slopes of the Green Mountains and its been damn chilly in the mornings.

At least a quick peak season keeps the idiot leaf peepers at bay--I know that's good news here on the hill. Our daily road traffic of 4 cars/trucks usually jumps to six or eight-- yeah, I know--crazy ain't it! :woot: :clap: toothy

Now if only you could hook me up with a couple of Salmon streams, Fred, I'd come visit.

Hell I'd even bring some coal with me. Coal on ride up, fish in cooler on ride home....... Same weight load either way.
And I wouldn't need much heat, I spent many a night up on the little Sandy near Mexico or further in Polaski in only a sleeping bag.


Damn, this pot is getting strong. Can't wait for the fresh pot coming soon.
