Day: February 24, 2024

Sat. Feb. 24, 2024 – 02242024 – cool here at the BOL…

Thermometer battery died, so I’m not sure how chilly, but chilly. Otherwise supposed to be clear today. We’re on the edge of a planting zone here, so not quite the same as Houston.

On Friday I did my pickups. No drop off at my auctioneer, but I did drop off some stuff I fixed for another auctioneer. He had a couple of estate pipes I cleaned up that turned out real nice. He was happy. He’s a cigar smoker but is trying to switch to a pipe, mainly because it’s a lot cheaper if you like to smoke all day long. A LOT cheaper. And if one was thinking about ‘after the fall’, pipe tobacco will store a long time, much longer than cigarettes and longer than cigars without special storage (other than airtight.)

I loaded the truck and headed to the BOL. Got here long after dark but still had time to have a small fire and tune around the bands a bit. Several neighbors are up this weekend too, so hopefully I’ll get a chance to check in with them today.

I’ve got to get the truck unloaded, then do the normal site maintenance. Before I can cut the grass, I’ve got to do some mower work. I mean, before I cut the clover. Not much grass, lots of weeds.

There is always something that needs to be done. And something that needs to be done before that, and after that too. It’s worth it though.

If you can swing it, having a place outside the city is going to be pretty important. If you can’t, start thinking about where you can go if you have to go. And maybe store some stuff there, or on the way. If you are going to be a guest, be a welcome guest, not a burden.

Stack what you need, make sure you can get to it and take it with you.
