..............I`ve come to the conclusion that those guys who clean a stove, or at least the ones who do a thorough job, definitely earn their money. I disconnected and cleaned all the motors , impellers, and the pipe too. Of course I`m getting on in years (69). Seems nothing is as easy as it always used to be. I`m kinda beat from getting into those contorted positions. Well, anyway my son is coming over to put the brush down the chimney. I can get on the roof OK (2 stories high), but coming down is a problem since I had both my knees replaced. The wife and I will be all set for the year now.
