New Happenings on Our Property

We are trying to make things easier around here. The Mister can no longer work so hard at getting the portable generator in place, hooking it up and storing enough gasoline to run it for several hours -  especially in sub zero degree weather. Winter power failures will definitely cause frozen water pipes. We can't have that!

It's definitely exciting to have these different and new things. "It's so nice to have some men about the house!" Their job was completed in one day!

  1. As I mentioned in my last blog, Arlene and I would love to live someplace quiet like you do. That's in the future though. It's so expensive around here. Maybe someday...

  2. that's awesome! i know it must be easier, too, to concentrate work and improvements on one home, again.

  3. It must be reassuring to know you will be taken care of in bad weather - nice addition.
