It Was Wild!

    Now that I’ve covered the railroad potion of our trip down to Cass, West Virginia, its time to cover the other cool thing we saw. I was perusing the pamphlets at the West Virginia welcome center (as I always do as we travel). Among the fliers pushing Gravity Hill and the world’s only Moth-man

Steam’s Up Again

    Last time I wrote about our great trip down to Cass, West Virginia to ride the Cass Scenic Railroad. Of course we rode behind (or in front of) the steam locomotives. These were special logging locomotives called Shays, after their designer. While I touched on it last week, I would like to explain a

Steam’s Up

    For those of you that are regular followers of my blog (bless your little hearts!), you may have noticed that I didn’t write anything last week. That’s because my wife took me on a special weekend trip to Cass, West Virginia. Why Cass, you may ask? That’s easy, that’s where the Cass Scenic Railway

Let There Be Light

    Now that the seasons are changing again, it’s not only been getting colder by the day, but it’s also been getting darker too. I especially notice this at the store, all Summer it’s still light out when I leave, but in the Fall and Winter it starts getting dark earlier and earlier and the

Fall Fun in Burton

    The scarecrows are out, the pumpkins are in and the food is cooked, it’s time for a Fall celebration in Burton! I came up about 11:00 this morning and had trouble getting through town there were so many folks around. I had forgotten that this weekend in Burton brings the Oxtoberfest, the Apple Butter

Fall Fitness

      Now that Fall is officially here I have decided that it’s about time to get into better physical shape. I’m not much of a runner, and I hate calisthenics, so I’ve decided to get into cycling. I found a classic 1960’s 3-speed cycle under one of the falling down sheds behind the farmhouse and

Hocking Hills

     If you came into Hill Hardware last week you might have noticed that I was conspicuous by my absence. Paul was ably manning the store while we took a few days off and went on a great vacation to Hocking Hills in southern Ohio. If you haven’t been there, the Hocking Hills are

Fair Time Again?

    Am I the only one, or does the end of Summer always seem to sneak up on us? It seems that school starts earlier and earlier every year (hint, hint – it does!). When I was in school we never started until after Labor Day, but then again we almost never got snow days off

American Quality

   Since this is Labor Day Weekend, it seems fitting to talk about one of our quality American-made tools that we sell here at Hill Hardware Company. We have carried Enderes brand tools here for decades. Enderes makes chisels, screwdrivers, screw extractors and nippers. They were founded in 1896, the same year that my Grandfather

Kayaking Adventures

    Last weekend, I had one of those events that made me feel very grateful. My wife, Mary Anne and I like to go kayaking on Lake Erie when we get a chance, usually up at Fairport Harbor where our cottage is located. There is a nice beach with a breakwall there, so conditions are
