Bonjour Cocobolo.,

Somehow I did catch the photo where the stove flue going thru the floor and I did recall that you have a wood stove for heating your house in cold weather.

That something I haven't see it for a while which it poke thru the floor like that.

Merci,
Marc

Hi Marc: I have the hole lined with tile just to make sure that nothing could get too warm. Top, bottom and sides are all lined.

Thanks John: I didn't manage to get any pics of the final work on all the arbutus shelves in the master bedroom. They came out OK, so you'll just have to take my word for it!

I'm a few hundred miles away up in the interior of B. C. now, and if all works out according to plan, a friend will be staying at the house this winter to look after it for me.

Hey buddy, good to see your smiling face. I hope your friend has a good head start on some fire wood.

Take care.

I think he should be OK Jim. The big woodshed up top is at least half full, and one of the lower ones about the same.

There is a whole lot of scrap wood from the sawmill that needs to be cut and brought up top and put away. It should be well and truly seasoned by now, as it has been cut for 5 or 6 years.

I'm not sure about any logs in the bay, I know there were a few just before I left, but I made no attempt to cut them up. Just way too many things to get caught up with before I left.

Looks like I may finally be going to pick up the '35 Chevy next weekend! Really looking forward to that. I just hope we beat the snow up north.

Aw man, that is going to be a fantastic treat working on your 35. Are you going to make a thread about it or post on your same one. I can't get snow in my head just yet, we very seldom get snow down this way and then it is very slight.

I hope ALL is well with you Keith.

We don't have snow here yet Jim, night time temps are still around the 50F mark. But further north, where the car is, they have already had a few flurries. I think we will be OK though. Our tow vehicle is one of those big ugly 4 x 4's with super deep tread tires.

I don't think a car build belongs on this thread, so I will take a walk through your automotive repair section to see what's there.

I'm saddened to bring everyone the news of our daughter's passing yesterday.

She finally lost her somewhat lengthy battle with cancer despite everyone's best efforts to help.

She leaves us with two beautiful little grandsons, who will be well looked after by their loving dad.

Not much else I can say right now.

Oh I am so sorry to hear this.

My heart goes out to you and your family. I cannot imagine the pain that you are going through but may you find some sort of peace in knowing that she is no longer suffering.

Big hugs

Robyn
