Wow the damn weekend just blew by on me! Thought I was early for Coffee here and it's Sunday NIGHT!
I LOOOOOOOOVE my new stoker boiler!! LOVE IT!! One less thing to deal with every winter, and that makes me VERY happy! So does a 72° house!! Never been this warm in here in the 10 years we've been here! So THIS is how the other half has been living all these years! I finally hit the big-time, thanks to Jim Dorsey!
Speakin of big-time ... holy crapper DCrane ... that is some CRAZY real estate for this part of the country. If you can afford a spread like that in MA, I can only imagine the ZEROS on the end of that paycheck!! WOW!!!
At least you were able to have a conversation with them - most people around here of that stature turn their noses up at you, unless you pull up in a high-end Euro car plastered with obama stickers ... and "Kill your television" .. BWAHAHAHAAA!!
Oh, want to publicly thank Freddy not only for this excellent breakfast (on Sunday night .. lol) but for his top-notch workmanship and holy s*** great pricing on a custom built ash pan and hopper lid for me new stoker!! AWESOME!! Opened the box, test fit, and painted them up not 30 seconds later with many many coats of primer and Krylon - same as the boiler got. Got to keep that stuff from disappearing down there due to corrosion. I'm letting them cure a few extra days here - been so overcast (and COLD!) that the greenhouse hasn't heated up enough to really bake the paint on there. Don't want the ash fusing to the semi-cured paint. A few more days and I can retire my little shiner bucket! Thanks Freddy!!
Last but not least - THANK YOU to all our veterans - past, present and future. We owe you all a HUGE debt of gratitude!! We shall honor you all tomorrow!!
