    I'll have to get clearance for a closeup.

    Fossil, That was arrival by retired NYPD Launch 5. We were involved in the Coast Guard Auxiliary at the time.

    Hey, you don't want to burn a leisure suit. That's like burning 4 tires!

    One word, my young friend...eBay. Trust me, I know from personal experience that there are people out there who will go into a frenzy bidding against one another for your "junk". It's fun, profitable, and empties the closets of all that old stuff you'll never use again. There is a buyer for everything. :cool:

    Dang, can't find leisure suit larry! It's pretty bad anyway - trust me. Although, as a hippie, I always preferred anything to the BiznessMan Suit.

    I am amazed at how few pics I have of the wifey and I......plenty of me, plenty of her, plenty of the kids, folks, etc.....but I guess someone was always taking the damn pic! This was probably taken by the photog at one of those Pocono Resorts we may have escaped to for a weekend.

    I was a young and an incredibly handsome man before I got here. Now, I'm older, arms are scarred from drunken stove loading, my back and knees are twisted pretzels of knots, blown tendons, and bridal spinal disks from moving over 2,000lbs of stoves across 1,500 miles, my clothing is covered in soot and charred burn holes from obsessively adjusting splits in a box of fire, I walk with a hunch from carrying untold amounts of firewood, and I have developed obsessive compulsive disorder when it comes to keeping the house ridiculously warm. Just one more split before I go to bed. Just one more.

    But, with the right amount of liquor, I can still convince anyone that I'm incredibly handsome. It just takes more liquor than it used to...

    How very true . . . whether it's the patience with the significant other in not saying anything while we spend untold hours scrounging or cutting, splitting, stacking wood, etc. . . . whether it's the significant other helping to run the woodstove while we're away (or sound asleep) . . . or whether it's the significant other helping to cut, split or stack the wood . . . running the woodstove is much easier and more successful in my mind when you have two people working together.

    Funny because when I installed the stove a while back, dear wifey threw a fit! She grew up in a home that heated exclusively with wood (an old smokedragon) and she was convinced that our house would stink like smoke, just as her house did growing up. She literally CRIED when I installed the EPA stove, she absolutely did not want it. Fast forward to the present, shed probably SHOOT me if I took it out! She absolutely LOVES the heat and the cozy factor, and virtually NO smoke smell EVER!! And to ice the cake, she's a great firetender.......she's got more scars on her arms from the loading the stove than I do!!
