The Power Show, A Family Affair

    I was pretty busy this last week, as I was getting ready for the highlight of my Summer, The Historical Engine Society’s annual Antique Power Exhibition. They hold it at the end of July every year at Century Village. It keeps me busy as I always seem to be not-quite-ready for it. I like

Mystery Flower – Take 2

    I’ve got another out of the ordinary post today, it’s “Mystery Flower – Take 2”. Awhile ago I posted a different mystery flower from the yard of our cottage in Fairport. The winning guess (I guess) was by my friend Toby (and others) who said it looked like a Saffron Crocus. I looked it

More on Fishing

    Well I finally had some luck catching fish. Unfortunately it was during a “Fish Pond” game with my grandchildren, Owen and Clarabelle. They had their first solo overnighter at our cottage in Fairport Harbor a couple weeks ago. They are pretty good kids and we had a lot of fun with them.    As

The Tall Ships

    Well it seems that Fairport Harbor is the happening place this Summer. Last week we had the Fairport Mardi Gras, and this week we had a visit from the Tall Ships tour. “Tall Ships” are the old-time sailing ships such as schooners, barks, brigs and full square-rigged vessels. It wasn’t that long ago (about

Fairport Mardi Gras

   Now that is is festival season, it seems like I will have plenty to write about. Last week was the Ashtabula Beachglass Festival, then this week was the Fairport Harbor Mardi Gras. The Fairport Mardi Gras is actually just a parade and carnival, so I don’t know where they get the Mardi Gras name

Beach Glass Festival and Old Friends

    Last weekend my wife Mary Anne and I went on an adventure up to a place I haven’t been to much before, Ashtabula. It’s located on right on Lake Erie about an hour East of our cottage in Fairport Harbor. I’ve been there before for a couple of auctions and sales, but I’ve never

Fishing 2016

    Well, as I talked about last year, I’ve started to get back into going fishing a little bit, which I haven’t done a lot since I was little. I only got out once last year, but this year we have gone out a few times. It took a while to get the logistics straightened

Our New Cottage

     I just thought that I would show you a few pictures of our new cottage – just kidding. Last weekend my wife Mary Anne and I attended a charity event sponsored by her work, Paul Moss Company at the Wolstein family’s Ravencrest estate in Hunting Valley. The event was to support the H.E.L.P.

A Tough Nut to Crack – Part 2

    As I started to tell you about last weeks, I have been working on my new (old) farm discs. I got the first axle apart and back together, so I figured that now that I knew the parts and how they fit together, I shouldn’t have too much trouble with the other three. WRONG!

A Tough Nut to Crack

     Yesterday, I had the day off, so of course I was at home working like a fiend. My project for the day was to rework the set of cultivating discs that I bought at the farm auction a few weeks ago. It was complete, but it had been sitting, so the axles were
