Last Christmas my wife and I went out for a walk. I asked her (again) about putting a wood stove in the basement. Her (agitated) reply was "Fine, put one it, but if I smell smoke I'm moving out." That’s “YES” isn’t it? The stove went in this summer. Well, here it is a year later and what does she and my son get me for Christmas? An Ash Vacuum. Yippee!
