We sure have had our share of rain lately. But it is necessary, as the plants and trees were in dire need of a good drink before their long winters nap. Highway 522 is picking up a bit these days with lots of campers moving around. The temperatures haven’t been all that bad so far, but we have had to turn on our oil furnace for the past week. We don’t need it on long, just in the mornings, long enough to warm up our old bones, along with taking out the dampness in the house. Feels good too. We haven’t had to burn any wood yet, which is a good thing, as we like to keep it for January and February when it gets real cold. Occasionally we burn a bit in December. Another reason is, it gets to hot in here if the temperatures are not that cold outside. It wasn’t always that way, but now that we insulated all the walls and under the eves upstairs, things are much warmer. It was a good investment that we made a few years ago. It took my wife and I all of one summer to do everything. Saved a lot of money doing it ourselves. We are also happy we did it when we did. As we wouldn’t be able to do it now, with the price of everything. There is some crazy prices out there today and there is no reason it should be this high. They think they have us by the short hair, but they are wrong, as people now are not buying things as they once were. Eventually they will have to drop their prices … or go out of business. Once that happens, you will hear more … crying the blues wanting more of the working mans money … saying they need it to stay afloat. It’s a crazy world we live in right now. But … we the people still have the upper hand, all we have to do is put our money away until things comes down in price. That’s what we are doing and will continue to do, till the country comes to it’s senses. Of course that might take awhile knowing the mentality of a lot of folks these days.
On another note with the rain and all, my lovely wife and I have been working on some projects here in the house where it is warm and dry. Today by the looks of things we will do the same.
It’s good to vent, now and then ... releases the pressure. Ha ha. Good to laugh too.
In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You Well.
