The Blog

Ol’ Blue (and Red)

    A few weeks ago I mentioned in my blog about rebuilding my wrecked Ford Escape (It’s doing fine, thank you) that I used to have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler. It has been one of the most favorite cars that I’ve ever owned, and undoubtedly one of the more practical (taking in cars like the

Lake Erie Lake Effect

    We’ve really been having some weather the last few days, haven’t we? I suppose that we can’t complain too much as the two last Winters have been fairly mild. But it’s been pretty cold (it was -2 degrees this morning and that’s Fahrenheit, not that wimpy Celsius scale), and we’ve been getting snow every

Out With The Bad Air (In With The Good)

    Today’s topic came to me as I was trying to keep some of the bad (read cold) air out of the store. We have a window style air conditioner mounted in a cutout over our front door. It does a so-so job of cooling in the Summer, but in the Winter it does a

I’m Dreaming of a…

    Today, Saturday the 23rd will be the last day the hardware store is open before Christmas (sorry last minute shoppers) this year the 24th is Sunday and we’re always closed anyway. We’ve only had one good snow this year so far, so I was worried that we’d have a green Christmas this year. So

More Christmas Steamers

    Last time we discussed some of our more elaborate Christmas steamers, our model steam engines. They’re great fun, but lets face it, they’re a little too complex for most young kids. This time we’ll talk about something that, while it still requires adult supervision, is a little better suited to most little ones. Best

Christmas Steamers

    Well, there’s no denying that the holidays are here. We had several holiday shoppers in the store today, and one couple was very interested in our model steam engines. We had a nice talk about them and I showed them several of the ones that we had in stock. If you’re not up on

Melissa & Doug

    I can’t believe that next week is Thanksgiving already. We have been trying to get the store ready for the holidays, but we’re still not ready. Mary Anne is the big impetus behind this all, as I’m forever oblivious to the season.    The first thing that we have to do is redecorate the

I Miss My Jeep

   This week’s story is kind of sad. It is a reminder of my 1995 Jeep Wrangler, which has been my favorite car. I bought it new and put about 250,000 miles on it before the frame broke and I had to retire it. Since then I’ve driven several different Jeeps and other cars, but

Is It Fall Back Or Spring Forward?

   This weekend happens to be the end of Daylight Savings Time, and I’ve had the old “Spring forward / Fall back” saying going on in my head all week. While it has nothing to do with the seasons, I figured this week’s topic should be springs. I haven’t talked about springs yet, but we

Return of Ciderfest

    I guess that I have been writing this blog for a while now, as Ciderfest has returned. Those of you that read this regularly will remember the last Ciderfest from a couple years ago. It seems that our apple trees only bear a lot of fruit every couple years. I’ve heard some folks say
