Capped off the root cellar with a custom piece of concrete. I made a mold and poured a slab with some Glass cubes in it. It is awesome! The cellar now had light pouring into it during the day, and the Mice cannot get in. This was the first thing we did today, and it went perfectly! I thought this would be a precursor to the days events, but I was GROSSLY mistaken.
I bought a Makita Reciprocating saw (Saws-All) today for the Chicken Coup… I was so proud. All I could think about was Uncle “Mary”.
Got rid of the old Chicken Coup at the farm. I decided to knock it off the concrete pad, heap it up and burn it. Well the first part went fine. But the burning almost had me calling 911. I am dead serious when I say that you could not get within 30 to 40 feet of thing when it was burning. It was hot, and out of control!!!!! A huge ball of fire that almost reached out and touched the tree next to the house. Thank God that it started to wane after about 10 minutes! Neighbors were making special trips by my house to get a good look at the “Kids” who moved in! The tree had sap oozing out of the side near the fire… So it wasn’t impressed either!
The plumber has had to make 3 trips out to the house to fix a leak that keeps popping up in the basement. I almost got electrocuted today when I grabbed the copper pipe and started getting a Shocking sensation! Later Linda and Ang informed me of fading/blinking lights that they had been seeing. Its good to be informed people, please tell me these things sooner!
We picked up another cat. This time I could justify it. We have seen all the “Tell-Tale” signs of Mice in the kitchen (That would be dropping to the “Un-Educated”). The cat is the same one that we brought back to our old house last month. He should do fine now. By the way… His name in “Mr. Newt”. Please open your hearts (And Wallets) to Mr. Newt. (Mr. Newt is a compassionate conservative, and is still working on his personal “Contract with America”)
And just so my Punk brother Dan knows… I do listen to other things than 80’s stuff. I have been playing stuff by a band named “Guster”. So there!
