Range, range for the home…
The washer in the basement – a piece of junk Maytag according to all Internet posts – broke. The motor burned out, which according to many messages on the Internet is a known problem with that model.
So, I have to get the upstairs one ready and working. This means building a 3’x5’x1′ platform for the washer and dryer to sit on. Well, it is built and now I just need someone to help me carry it upstairs, and move the new washer and dryer into place.
Another work project is this door…
This door is the door to the cellar at 212 E Main Street. My tenant has been stuffing plastic bags between the foundation and the door frame to keep the cold out. Upon closer inspection I have come to realize that this is really a mess of a job. Plus, look at that pipe on the right. What’s up with that? The door has the corner cut so this pipe can go outside. (My dad use to say, “A job worth doing is a job worth doing right.” There’s no excuse for a pipe being placed like that.)
A few doors down is this alley…
Main Street Alley Near Mark’s Pizza
.. I think I hear it calling, “Photo shoot right here!”
A walk in the garden this morning found this guy hiding in a corner…
The bunny must not be phased by him because the bunny is still eating my plants. But, there is enough to go around and I kind of like the idea of a little cotton-tail gracing the yard. (Although, next year all tomotoes will be in the greenhouse, and bunny will have to find something else to eat.)
I’m not sure what type of berry this is. My daughter suggested mulberry, but we have muberries and they are more like a tree and not stickery like this. She also suggested blackberry, but I haven’t seen any blackberries shaped like this. Also, the fruit is quite hard.
We have quite a variety of lilies in the yard. This is just one of them. Also, I have noticed a lot of farmers plant lilies like this at the end of their rows of corn. I don’t know if there is some agricultural reason for that, or if they just do it because it looks nice.
P.S. I want this stove for the kitchen in the mansion:
