She's the primary bread winner (I'm retired! 27 years Navy, 10 years teaching high school!) so I do most of the hausfrau work, in addition to the farm chores. My 24 y/o daughter, who lives with us while in college is, however, brilliant on the coal furnace. She was always a little pyro anyway, even as a little girl making bonfires outside, so if for some reason I can't tend the coal furnace, she can and with excellence!

cant keep something that doesn't want YOU anymore, but she sure can fire up the stove good!
