The Blog

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

Our Other Employee

Oh, I’m sure that you all think that being a hardware store owner is a pretty cushy gig.  Just sit behind the register collecting other folk’s money all day and then loading it all in a wheelbarrow for the trip to the bank.  Well, let me tell you that sometimes it’s not all it’s cracked

It Couldn’t be Planer

Just yesterday I came across a project that illustrates one of my beliefs in life, that 90 percent of everything is @#$%&!  Of course what I mean by that is that when there is a problem with any machine, the problem is usually just dirt, rust or general neglect.  Paul, the fellow that works for

Spring Fever! (Or is it late Winter madness?)

This time of year can be pretty tough.  Winter is almost over, but Spring just isn’t here yet.  Winter hasn’t actually been that bad this year.  It’s been cold, but not too much sub-zero, snow, but only a few real blizzards.  But it’s sure been long.  Here it is St. Patrick’s Day and the temperature

Let There Be Light (Steam Powered, Of Course!)

Well, for those of you that aren’t keeping score, tomorrow is the first Sunday in March.  In Burton that means just one thing, PANCAKES!  Actually that’s not entirely correct; it also means STEAM at Hill Hardware.  You see, March is the only time that Hill Hardware is open on Sundays (thank the powers that be).

Hill Hardware 10K

Hill Hardware 10K?  From the title of this article, you might be tempted to think that the store is sponsoring a race or something, but that’s not the reason.  In this case the 10K does not refer to 10 kilometers, but the number 10,000, items that is. First let me explain a little.  Somewhere, a

Vintage Lighting

   As you know, I’m a fan of all things vintage. Today I had a chance to work on some vintage lighting. Lots of folks are into vintage chandeliers and desk lamps or such, but this was something different, vintage fluorescent. I know I just heard everybody groan, “But I hate fluorescent lights!” Well I
