You had a big power surge Mac. Might want to consider a whole house surge protector.  Heap insurance.

You can observe a lot by watching.

Got one.
It wasn't connected.

BUT.....there are others on the same line.
Nobody else had issues.

The fence posts I cemented are solid.
Just got back from Home Depot with the plastic netting for the fence.  The guys ripped off the old netting when they pulled down the old fence.  So I had to replace it.  Another $100.  :-[
Today Ill finish the fence for them then get back to finishing things at my place.
Chris is coming out to help.
Ill send him up on the roof.
I need the AC unit vacuumed out and the last stretch of roof seam taped.

Got the fence finished yesterday.
Came out very well
I ordered a wheel for the gate.
The gate is very wide and sags from its weight.
The wheel was only $17 on Amazon and will add a nice touch by supporting the overhung load and allowing the gate to swing easier.
Im heading over there in a few minutes to do a final inspection and lay some topsoil and grass seed around the fence posts and a few bare spots.
Neighbors are gone for a few days but should be happy to see things are finished when they return tomorrow.
Still waiting for the stove parts.  They have shipped and should be delivered this week sometime.
Things are pretty close to being back to normal.
We had a few interested parties come through looking at the place yesterday.  No offers yet, but Im sure it will sell.
Things are almost finished.
If my boat cover is finished this week Ill pick it up and bring out the boat next weekend.
Its been killing me not being able to fish, but needed to finish my work first.
Work first - then youve earned your right to play!

2 good things.
First - the parts for the stove arrived - means I can finish the one last thing that broke.

Second - the cover for my boat is done - means I can take it out with me on Thursday and can hit Erie!!!

Life is good.

Now.....if I could get full asking price for my place, or maybe even a bidding war?!?!

Got the parts installed into the stove.  The clock and timer work again.

Also got the tv connected to the antenna.  No more satellite dish tv.  Streaming and get the locals off the antenna.  Works fine for out here.

Tomorrow Ill install the new FM receiver that I bought on line.  Tunes by the campfire!!

The 3rd good thing would be a full bottle of tequila and a cold beer... 8)

Funny you say that.
We attended a party out here tonight.
My buddys 60th.
I had 2 small glasses of really good tequila and a couple Bud lites.
Also a great meal.

I finished the stereo and TV wiring yesterday.
Reconnected the outside speakers.
That was the end of the work....or so I thought.

It's pouring out here right now.
And the skylight in the bathroom is leaking.
A lot!!!

This has been in the works for a bit now and I was reluctant to say anything and possibly jinx it.
We have decided to be snowbirds.
At least for a few years.
As most of you know, we were prepared to move to Florida permanently.
But our place here at PB on Erie is so phenomenal that we kept wondering, "what if?".
Also, our neighbors here are the best.
So we decided to do it.
It's being built specially for Donna.
She specified everything.
Except the outside colors.
I selected slate blue for siding and navy blue for the shutters.
She picked everything else inside.
The photo below is a good representation.
Currently it's slated to arrive the week of 10/14.
We have given the deck and roof I built 18 years ago to a good friend here.
He and a bunch of us will move it complete with a huge flatbed trailer another guy here has access to.
We are going to concrete the area under the new place and also 10-12 feet on the side of it for a future awning and sitting room.
I also want my parking area concrete.  The cost will determine if that gets done at the same time as the pad under the trailer and awning/room.
We are paying cash for everything and the pile is dwindling so the parking area might have to wait a year or so.
The owners here suggested that I put it up into our storage area up front in the park for the winter.
The boats all get moved out into storage elsewhere and the compound gets locked up for the winter.
It's fenced in with a 8' chain-link fence and has razor wire up top.
This will allow the contractor to pour the concrete for me and allow it to cure and settle before we spot the new place on top of it.
The factory is delivering it directly here to Point Breeze for us.
The trailer place we bought it from has agreed to wait until next spring to spot it and do the setup work.

We are excited to say the least.

And, because we are now going to be here during the summers, I will get a larger boat.
So the Lund will soon be for sale guys.
 ;)

More to come.
I'll post actual pics of it as soon as it shows up.
