Weekend update

Our weekend was really busy.. however we did get in some needed R&R.; I found a
nice old oil lamp that I’ve refurbished for a really cheap price. I’ve dated the brass burner on it from 1850- 1875 by the Scovill Brass factory in Waterbury, Conn. The only thing I had to do was get the ‘grime’ off of it, and replace the wick. Its amazing that someone probably used this to light their home a long time ago. It actually works really well, and I’m tickled to have found it.

Friday night was pretty good.. out to Red Lobster for all you can eat crab legs.. It was funny to see the expression on the waitresses face when I kept asking for more. What can I say.. I can eat those for days.. well maybe not days. The bad side is one gets tired of cracking them. After that it was home to watch TV.. knowing we could sleep in on Saturday.

Saturday was full of ‘doing nothing’. Well.. it was off to Walmart for some shopping, and then working in the yard. Well.. until the rain came. We didn’t do anything Saturday night.. just stayed in and watched a DVD.

Sunday was nice and quiet.. actually no rain for a bit. We went for lunch, and then for a drive to see some homes that are for sale on Emerald Mountain. Those were really nice, and it was amazing how much it was built up since the last time we went ‘window shopping’ for a home. My only concern is paying toll ever time we would have to go to town..lol. Oh.. we also went to check out the camping facilities of Fort Toulouse/Fort Jackson. We want to go camping before summer is over. Here’s some information about the site.
