Forgot to mention that the new "used" engine for the truck arrived when Sweetie's brother came for their mom's funeral. Thankfully, Sweetie still has use of the pole barn (actually 1/4 interest in it now!) and today was spent hoisting the engine into its new home.
I admit there are times when I moan about all his tools, parts and "junk" strewn here and there but, by golly they got put to use yesterday and today! And, among all the things he was given for cleaning out a garage, the propane heater came in handy. It is -6 degrees here with -15 forecast for tonight. Brrrr............
So someday next week we should have wheels again! Yippee!!!
In other news, my son bought another fixer-upper for $1,200. Three bedrooms, one bath, glassed in front porch, village lot that backs up to DNR property, and lots of beautiful woodwork.
Sweetie's mom's house will be shown to a prospective buyer Saturday. Maybe this financial log jam we're in will have a little movement.
Well, not much else to share. I'm aching and grimy and look like I've been mopping black grease off the floor. Time for a soak! Treesong
