Productive Two Weeks

The last couple of weeks have been very productive in Clark’s Cemetery thanks to Rob Surabian, of Gravesite Preservation.  He has been leveling bases, and that allows us to follow behind him and erect headstones.  Sunday the Cemetery Restoration Partnership was able to erect six headstones and unearth two bases that will be leveled by Rob this week. It is very hard to keep up with Rob.   Below are the links to their information.

A Day Messing About With Boats

Today I got to spend sometime at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. There were two friendship sloops in the creek. Venture homeport of Beverly and Maria homeport of Essex. The boats are the kind that make people dream of sailing.

Good Times

If it were not for the pictures I’m not sure I would remember the party.  Terry Fuqua brought cherries that were soaked in Everclear.   Fruit and grain alcohol are always a good gift idea.

Bombona Heater

Our house in Spain did not have a heater, except for our bedroom.  We bought a butane heater called a bombona heater.  With the arctic temps we had here in Bella Vista.  I converted it to propane to supplement the fireplace heat that is ducted  throughout the first floor and the garage.  The garage was at 41 with just the forced air from the fireplace.  My work area got to 70 with the bombona.

Puppy Sitting

Well the gang is out for shopping and lunch.  The only sound in the house is a clock ticking off the seconds.  I stayed behind to make sure these two did not get in trouble.


Time for me to join in the nap party…
