Good morning. Freddy, those stones look very nice. It will probably hold up better than you think. There is a cemetery near my house with stones that are hundreds of years old, and you can still read them. I have one that was uncovered during a water line project
from 1828, it is still legible. Before everyone assumes that we dug up someone, relax...the town historian determined that the woman engraved on the stone is actually buried across the street with her husband. She passed first, and apparently when they buried him they had a new stone made with both names...guess the old stone went in a low spot across the road.
Other news: I had to go get some items I won on an online auction. Pfizer is preparing to tear down a chemical development plant in my area, and they hired a company to list all items online for a 24 hr auction. We ended up with a nice shop vice, huge toolbox full of tools, some nice drum carts, and a pallet jack. Kind of sad walking through the building to pick everything up, lots of paychecks came out of that place for a long time. Huge building, and enough stainless and copper to make your head spin. I wish I had bought a lot more stuff, I could have made a lot of money just by scrapping it. oh well.
Yesterday we took my oldest son to the zoo in Quebec. He had a great time looking at all the animals, but what he really loved was an order of "poutine" on the way home. For those of you that don't know what that is, well...it is one of the finer things in life that must be consumed in moderation. Hand cut french fries, a light gravy, and fresh cheese curd.
