It looks like maybe the wildflower will still be blooming in the Rockies. If so, I'd consider myself double-lucky as I was in the Texas Hill Country during the peak this spring.
Still working on some projects before my departure. Oh, the joys of home ownership!
That's Trent, our chimney sweep, replacing the chimney's rusted chase pan. I do not envy him working on the roof in this 106-degree heat index.
You know, I didn’t even know what a chase pan was until a few weeks ago. Now we are paying $365 for one. Well, half of one anyway - we share a chimney with our neighbor.
Ain't it gorgeous?
Top Hat does a good job; Trent's dad installed a fireplace for us in our old house.
Their work van’s chassis is exactly the same as my GDB – a Chevrolet 3500 ExpressVan. It always amazes me to see a sister Chevy juxtaposed with mine. One would hardly suspect they are identical vehicles. One a working van, the other a pampered palace of pure pleasure!
I have a mercifully short to-do list remaining. One task has been on the list for months – to wash the GDB. After those winter months in the desert with only one washing, it needs it. But it’s just been too brutally hot!
In other news, John and Doris spend some quality time.
