More Things New…

This is the second installment of the “what’s new at Hill Hardware?” series of articles.  These will be pretty short and possibly low on the entertainment scale.  Hopefully they will make up for it with high information content by informing you about new or possibly just “new to you” products that we have added recently

As in Doctor Who of course.  For those of you aren’t familiar with the “Doctor”, Doctor Who is a long running British science fiction show that has been on the air since the early 1960’s.  The Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey.  A two-hearted alien, who can live for hundreds of years

Something New…

This is something new, as in “Something old, something new, something borrowed,” etc.  It seems like I’m always writing about old things in this column.  Whether it’s actual old stuff that I own, or the as good as the old time products that we have at Hill Hardware.  Well I’m trying something new this time,

Ol’ Kiss Of Death

It seems like sometimes I just have the luck (bad that is).  I suppose that everyone feels like that sometimes, and this week it was just my turn.  I wrote before about my buddy Lou’s new fishing boat up in Geneva.  It’s been running fine since we played musical batteries in it a couple weeks

Farewell Aloha

Last week I was complaining about having too many motors to keep running.  Well this week we did a little something about it.  I’ve always been bad about getting rid of things, and old cars have been one of them.  In fact one of the reasons that I moved to the country in the first

What’s The Charge?

Motors, motors, motors, last week I had fuel trouble with my Gravely, this week was electrical trouble with my friend Lou’s new boat.  Hobby boats have been described as a hole in the water, surrounded by fiberglass, that you throw money into.  This wasn’t quite that bad, but you get the idea.  Lou bought a

Gravely Mayhem

I know that last time I said that I’d write another blog about window screens this week, but I was just kidding.  I actually want to talk about how I spent my day off on Wednesday, putting in my garden.  Before I could plant it though, I had to till it up.  That required the

Why Does My Screen Take So Long?

Well, today’s blog might sound a little defensive, but I’m just trying to explain a little about one of our service jobs here at the hardware store, fixing window screens.  Like anything exposed to the weather, window screens don’t last forever.  Sooner or later they all need to be replaced.  That is where we come

Getting Some Air To It

Well, it seems that Spring has finally sprung here in Burton.  It’s been over 70 the last few days, and in spite of a strong wind storm that roamed through the area yesterday, it’s time to open up the doors.  There is some kind of unknown stimulant in the Spring air that works wonders on

Camp Cookin’

Now that warmer weather is finally here (off and on, it’s 37 degrees out right now) we’ve been able to get outside a little to get some chores done.  Last weekend we drove up to the storage lot to bring my buddy Lou’s pop-up camper back to our house to do a little work on
