    Well the Contractor just picked up the Excavator. Now he needs to Roll out and crush the Stone base. Then, if the weather holds, he can deliver 2 truckloads of the topping.

    Went to my second Rail Road Retirees breakfast today. It is good to see old friends after 30 years in my case and swap old RR stories with them. We all loved that job and had a lot of fun working together. Most are older than me and some aren't in good shape but it is good seeing them once again. I guess that means I am officially an old man now. I used to thing old men sat around telling old stories and now I am doing it. A lot of them have passed on both young and old and that is all sad to hear about. I think I am the youngest of the ones that attend that breakfast. It is 52 miles up the road but worth it to me to make the trip once a month. I wish I would have know sooner that they have been doing this for 30 years. I moved out of town a few years after I was laid off and never gave it another thought. Thanks to FB I got in contact with one of the guys and found out about the breakfasts. I will go as long as I can find someone to watch (babysit) boy did I get in trouble from another care taker when I said that the first time, my wife while I am gone. Thank goodness for some good neighbors.

    ATW? The reason for the rock underneath is so you can drive on it later?

    Took out a whole section of pine pantry cabinets. I cut them up and carried the wood to my burn barrel. One of my neighbors came over and told me that her husband said it is okay for me to metal detect on their property. She said that there was once a barn on their land but it is long gone.

    We got rid of the rain for a week or two here starting yesterday. Got up to almost 50* today and sunny. Wind starts tonight here for a few days. Going to be cool for awhile now.

    Yep,, it rained all day here and was a little on the chilly side.
    Taking down some wood panels that will allow me to open up and join some downstair spaces. I want to reconfigure the kitchen, laundry room, mudroom, and install a full bathroom with a fancy shower instead of a tub. I may also eventually install a pellet stove. Well in taking down the wood panels I discovered that the wall I'm removing was once an exterior wall and it is packed with fiberglass insulation.
    Tomorrow I will go into town and pick up a few extra heavy garbage bags, some tyvek suits and some canisters for my respirator. I'm also going to borrow my neighbor's shop vac.

    You are certainly jumping right into being a home owner. Good timing too if you get it done for the spring thaw. Then you will have some more swing time.

    Yep, cleaned out fiberglass fill, removed panelling on reverse side and exposed what was once exterior lapstrake or clapboard siding.
    Tomorrow, weather permitting, I'll cut everything away from the loadbearing columns. ( studs and clapboard siding)
    Then everything that can't be salvaged, gets cut to size and taken to the burn barrel.
